  • Grinder work head finished

    Well I finished my grinder work head this weekend . Only have one simple part to make and Aluminun bracket to mount the micro finger on top to catch the cutter tooth . Here are som pictures of finished head . I know how every one likes pictures. First is side view.

    Nexk is back view.

    Last is end view collet end .

    The unit swivles in 2 planes .Spins on precision bearings , Has 24 position indexing with sprend loaded pull pin plus it gradiuated in 360 degrees 0 -90 -90 -0- 0-90-90-0.
    Unit uses 5c collets and later if need arises i plan to motorise it to spin under varable speed DC motor

        Nice Work!

        Wow! That's gorgeous! If that term is applicable. Dang, that looks too nice to be a tool. I think it needs a display case.

            You just oughta see it in the "flesh"---- I went by Lanes this afternoon and got to see this thing up close and personal, and it is ---well, its just really something. It really does need a display case. The pics dont do it justice.
            If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something........

              So, where is the detailed log of the build, complete with detailed pics, instructions and diagrams? That is SO far beyond my capabilities as to be almost "magic" (std definition).

                          Will try to answer as many Questions as I can remember. IT took about 4 weekends to build anout 40-60 hours. Thanking of drawingsome plans and having them in Hsm or machinist work shop.It not hard to build. Just cutting iron one piece at a time. I graduate it in the mill in a dividing head or superspacer and scrib the lines with a sharp pointed tool. It is a cross between a copy of a rockwell and KO Lee work head. Glad you all like it . will have to come up with something else to build and show.

                              Real nice. I like the metal blueing or blackening on the spindle. Did you do it or have it done? Good job. JRouche
