  • First millimg project

    I spent a few hours this afternoon and built the first project with my new milling attachment on my SB9. I've been needing one of these for a long time and have made do with bits and pieces clamped to the ways. No more. I now have a nice micrometer carriage stop. The micrometer is a Starrett inside mic and I have several extension rods for it that can extend it up to five inches. When not in use it slides left beside the headstock.

    Nice job Evan. A real micrometer, micrometer stop. Now I know how to use up those micrometer heads that have been laying in the drawer for years.

      Did you work for the big X?

        That's nice work, Evan. I've been wanting to make one of these for my Myford for quite some time.

          Exellent! Thats a beautiful finish which is sadly lacking in some of my work.

              You are a natural at machining.

              Nice work on your new milling machine.

              Does it have some advantage over a vertical, cause it would be nice to make my little 7x10 converted to a horizontal machine too..

              nice to have both features in the shop.

              Only I'll probably have to buy the carriage from little machine shop, cause I'm not that good yet in making bigger tooling.

                Nice job Evan! I have a milling attachment
                for my Grizzly 7x12 that I have not even
                tried yet. I bought a micro mill that I use
                all the time that works very well for me.
                I made adaptors and installed a x-feed that
                was intended for the minimill. Just flip a
                switch and it runs the table to the other end.But I'm going to have to try my milling
                attachment out. You have inspired me with
                that nice work.

                            Evan,
                            I don't know what the big X is, so I probably didn't work there.

                              Xerox perhaps?
