  • And now for a machining topic,I hope the Gurl don't mind.

    Home made riser for Wells Index, 7" is a bit much but I didn't want to do it twice.



    Excuse the clutter.

    Very nice. Now you just need to paint it all a nice green color

      Mr. Wolf: Did you "turn" them with the mill? Gary P. Hansen

        Hmm, good job and easy to fab and machine. Better than a solid bar.
        It's only ink and paper

          How did you achieve your parallelism?

          I was interested in building one for an older Grizzly I had so I could do Head work on it

            I "turned them" on a 20" lathe.

            It is parallel with in .002,The lathe is WW1 vintage.

            And of course, you always Tram when you move anything on a Mill.

              I would be inclined to add some more metal around the rim bridging the top to the bottom. Steel is really bendy compared to cast iron. Just by making it taller even if it was cast it would lessen the rigidity.

                What make is your 20" lathe? WWI is almost new, mine is closing in on 100 years old. Gary P. Hansen

                  Not my lathe,I had to trade some time on it for some work.

                    I'm gonna be hounded as a smart-arse here, but has anyone heard of "Young's modulus"?

                      Nice bit of work... I see gusset plates welded in. I'd guess you did not use 1/8" pipe for it maybe schedule 80 so it should be fine. As with anything more height means more flex... so it take three passes instead of two. But he has more daylight under the business end to work with.
                      Wow... where did the time go. I could of swore I was only out there for an hour.

                          Hi Mr North American Wolf, (not the pr**k we think you are) LOL.
                          Just keepin it polictacly correct.
                          Nice job, but a couple of questions if you dont mind. Are the top and bottoms full plates or just rings? Do you have any internal gussets or stiffeners inside the tube ? O.K. three questions, did you do any engineering calcs or just a ''gut feeling'' approach?

                            I like it. I see you've got two mills. Seems like a riser on one and leaving the other one "stock" is a good solution. You've got rigidity and capacity, just not neccessarily in the same machine

                            Seriously though, nice job. You should have used a stick welder instead of mig though ... sticks are cooler

                              Nice job, but a couple of questions if you dont mind. Are the top and bottoms full plates or just rings? Full 1/2" plates,cut on CNC plasma table. Do you have any internal gussets or stiffeners inside the tube ? I didn't think I would need it with 3/8" tube.O.K. three questions, did you do any engineering calcs or just a ''gut feeling'' approach? You have got to be kidding, Calculations? ROTFLMFAO.Build it strong, and then some. This has never failed me.
