          • The reason I asked I am looking for a milling head design that I can make or adapt to fit my Deckel miller.

            Its the grey one at the bottom of the page.
            The one you've shown looks like it may be ok.

                • Sensitive Drill Attachment

                  Here's a Sensitive Drill attachment I made from the plans in one of the early "Projects" books.

                  Thanks to the various members that pointed out you can now post photos from profile albums. Assuming this actually works & the picture is visible, it only took me 3 days to figure it out! I got a couple more pictures in the album, still gotta figure out how to add multiple URL's

                  Hope you like it. I roughed the parts out on the drill press at work, then did the finish work at home on a Sherline lathe & mill.
                  It's works very nicely! So far I've drilled holes down to .028" in brass without breaking the drill bit.
                  The idea is you have the drill bit turning in the mill chuck and raise the part up to it to drill the hole.

                  • Norman Patent style toolpost

                    Howdy folks,
                    I am a very much a forum lurker, but figured i would come out of the shadows a bit. Tonight I finished up my take on the Norman Patent tool post. It is quite rigid, and was made from stuff I had laying around, or had purchased from the drop bin at the local welding shop. Most of the things I made are done for utility and are not much to look at, but when I finished this item, it seemed pretty enough to present to you lovely folks. It works really nicely, and I like being able to set the height quickly without packing shims under the bit. It is just right for my little 9a lathe, and was a fun, easy project.


                    I recommend this for anyone wanting to make a toolpost for a small lathe that doesn't involve dovetails.
                    Cheers,
                    JP

                      Well done. They are a well designed little rig - for any of you not familiar, they are hands down the best way to feed a drill. Knocks out electromechanical dumore and even servo and tramples over the gizzmos and lifting tables. well worth making

                      • That's a nice looking tool post. I'll have to look that up as I have a lathe in need of a tool post.

                            • Is this the simplest cut knurling tool ever? (just like the user?)

                              single-wheel tool cutting crmo-alloy


                              Need cross-pattern? rotate the tool and run on reverse


                              Usable but not exhibtion quality knurling

                              • Second test run on the same cut knurling tool paying more attention to set the cut angle to 30 degrees and setting the tool to center height:
