  • look what I found in my surface plate

    nothing too exciting.. but thought I'd share:

    5" sine bar


    the start of a set of thick parallels:


    never knew how much I liked cast iron.

    I just LOVE machining cast iron! Cleaning it up afterwards...not so much.

    Nice looking parallels and sine bar. Did you make them from the cast iron scraps in the last photo? Is it a known grade of gray cast iron, malleable, pearlitic, CGI, Meehanite or just some "whatever I found in the scrap bin"?

      yep, the shop vac is getting a work out.

      have no idea what type of CI it is -- and yes they're from the (ex)
      surface plate you see in the last photo.

      The thicker pieces you see on top will be saved.. all this little stuff is
      coming from the skirting / structure below.
