  • An idea for a slotter

    I spotted an ammuniton reloading press at the nieghbors junk pile.Right away I thought "If I cut this off here,and drill two holes there,then adapt this ram to that broach...and there is a slotter for my lathe! So it came home with me.

        I would sell the reloading press and use the cash to buy some steel and build a slotter from scratch.

          Couple things.

          A loading press is toggle acting. It pushes and as the toggle goes over center the thrust stops.

          The stroke is a couple inches and cannot be lengthened. Keyway broaches are 5 to 18" long

          An arbor press already has been around for generations. It's made in several sizes for broaching, installing/extraching arbors, pressing in or on bearings, bushings, and any other operation where a controlled linear push is required.
