  • Curiosity - What's this for?


    This is on the back of the milling machine opposite of the head, and has a hole in it somewhere around 1" in diameter. Somewhere someone told me it is an adapter point for some sort of attachment, but for the life of me, I can't remember what it was. I'm sure y'all would know!

    BTW, this is probably a dumb question, so take it easy
    Why buy it for $2 when you can make it for $20

    Shaper

    Wareagle:
    That would be the mount for the shaper head. We had a two headed monster in one of the shops I worked. They come in handy for keyways etc.

      It's to hold the slotting head.





      Or if you don't have a slotting head and are weak of knee it's to hold the crane.

        That hole on the back of the ram is for mounting a Cherrying or a Shaping Attachment. After attaching you swing it around to the table of the Mill.
        The whole is greater then the sum of the parts.

          The cherry picker is an interesting idea. Hmmm, there might be another project on the horizon.

          Thanks for the replys!
