          • You're welcome, Illinoyance. It doesn't say anywhere on the drawings, but I used 3-3/8" x 1" dowel pins, and it fits a CXA toolpost.

            • I can scale it to BXA or AXA. Not sure which I will do first.

              • Jim2 thats is a really nice tool, Illinoyance if you can scale it to AXA that would be great and something else for my todo list

                • Thanks, _Paul_. Loved your tool-holders also--especially that nice blacking you did on them. Very nice!

                  • [IMG][/IMG]Hi This is my first posting so here's hoping I am doing right. I have a Tormach PCNC mill with the 8" fixed rotary table 4th Axis. I had a job that came into the workshop and it was a large one that required the a- Axis to be at an angle to the table. At first I thought that I should just make a wedge to fit under the table to tilt it but then I thought why not make something more useable so I came up with this that I thought I would share. It enables the table to be set at the right hand end of the mill table with the stepper motor pointing outward, which allows more Y-axis movement towards the column without the motor fouling the control panel. The job is a simple drilling job so I am confident that the angle plate is up to the job. I will give it a try when I have some heavier milling to do just to check out it's rigidity.

                    • That's more a hack than a build but here's my take on micro lubrication:

                      It took me less than 30 minutes to build and it works like a charm. An old airbrush (10$) slightly modified makes the air and oil flow easy to adjust. A strong magnet helps the stand not to fall.




                      The air consumption is minimal around 3l/min or 0,1 CFM.

                          I think he meant to say "This is more a hack than a build but here's my take on micro lubrication:" I don't think he was saying Bob R's rotary table angle mount was a hack-job!

                            Really nice work. Would you have any interest I making and selling any of these holders next time you do a "batch"? I know I can get some imports cheap but I'd like to get some usa made holders without spending 5X as much as imports. Can't hurt to ask[emoji2].
                            Merry Christmas all!

                              I was indeed talking about the airbrush modification, I didn't think that it could be misinterpreted.
