      • Just a hammer... need a break form a bigger project.
        I really wanted to make it to try some knurling. Head is 1018, shrink fit to the 1215 handle, faces are UHMW, all from the bin. I wanted a fine, shallow knurl, not too hard on the hands, I think I got it!

                That is fantastic work!
                Looking at it I was thinking that you could add a boring head style micrometer adjustment screw that runs through the key to dial in the eccentricity.
                I say you could, because I don't think I could.

                      Might be having to rethink Photobucket as my pic host. Any recommendations?

                        Ah, my 2nd image works on the 2nd try.

                        What we have here is my 1st machined part ready to make the 4 post turret my new Lathe / Mille Combo came with to actually not hang up on the T-Slot access hole while simply trying to rotate it on it's base. Works great!!

                            • Photobucket works fine if you use Firefox and the "Adblock Plus" add-in to get rid of all the ads.

                                Yes Toolguy. That was pointed out to me on Facebook. So, I referred to my manual & ordered what was spec'd as R8 for a collet set. The results of how that went can be seen on my Newbie Introduction thread. The proverbial Silver lining is in what I've learned from it & finding this site!

                                Safety first!!!!
