  • center steady

    Some time back I showed picture of a mill set up. Here is the completed result.


    Hope this is understandable. JIM

    Nice steady! Thats the first time I've ever seen a transmission case set up on a lathe.

      rmack, the steady rest in this operation not only serves to center the trans, but also holds the case from turning, as the input shaft is in the chuck. I was drilling a hole in the output shaft to be threaded to bolt the driveshaft yoke to the shaft. We are building a demolition derby car, lots of modifying being done to many parts! Driveline failures have been many over the years. JIM

        Funny you should say that, I went to a demo here in walla walla , washington tonight.

        I am uploading 120 megs of videos right now to youtube but here is a still shot of a fun ride.

            2nd thought

            That sure is a nice steady rest. I built 1 out of 1/2' plate and it flexes too much even using roller bearings. 1 more project to be done over and hopefully righ this time!


            sigh....

              Thanks Mark for the compliment on the steady rest. I can take pictures of some other projects if you all are interested, nothing fancy but they work. JIM
