    • Sorry about that. I didn't take any pictures of what I did. I attached a link to another forum that shows what he did.

        • That crane is bad a$$, I made one about the same color but it's no where near as stout.

          • My Fibromyalgia is getting no better and its a real struggle to use the drawbar on the Bridgeport so I made a simple power drawbar, like many other home made types it uses a 3/8" "butterfly" air wrench.

            Seems to work OK so far all it really needs is a decent automatic oiler, I did fit an in-line one but it wasn't a success.

              • I like your RPM box. I need to make something like that. I just picked up a display.

                • That is a damn fine design. I have a Kurt setup on my Trak DPM bed mill and the wrench is about dead I bought a rebuild kit and if that doesn't fix it I might do this Kurt wants over $400 for a replacement impact wrench.

                    • Nice job Paul !!

                      Just a few suggestions for what they're worth:

                      1) Have you considered using Oilite bearings for those kingpins? It would take the nuisance out of having to keep them lubed and it appears you are collecting some overflow on the baseplate.

                      2) A rectangular cover, possibly made from plastic, would keep dirt from collecting on the mechanism. It could be slotted for the handle and airline and attached to the baseplate. it looks like the aluminum block could be shortened considerably on both ends to make the cover more compact.

                      Once again, a VERY impressive piece of work. Many thanks for sharing!

                      • I made a holder for 1/8" and 1/4" carbide countersinks to use for manual deburring small holes.


                        It is about 2.5" long and .56" diameter. Sorry about the crappy knurling, I was in a hurry

                        • That's a nice little tool GSWayne. I could have used that last week *LOL* I like the idea of using carbide too. You have inspired me to make one of my own ... thanks for sharing your idea!

                                The VNMG holder actually has the dovetail too far from the tip of the tool

                                Forty plus years and I still have ten toes, ten fingers and both eyes. I must be doing something right.
