        That would be a perfect match for my mill. It's table is 9 x 32. LOL

        I'm only 2 hours from the Sierras, but it depends on which part of the Sierras we are talking about. I'm 6 hours from the north end of the mountain range. Hmm. I'm 6 from the south end too. Oh well. It's still too big for my mill.

          Even if you don't have a grinder, here's a novel use for one. I was able to watch a machine rebuilder do the final scraping on a gib once. It was a dovetail gib with no square edges to any other. He used a long mag chuck after bluing to hold it while scraping. It struck me as a smart way to do it. ...always wanted one after seeing that

            A few inches too long for My grinder, but just curious is it mechanical or electric?

              Dan,

              You typically wouldn't use a magnetic chuck on a milling machine. Mostly they are found on grinding equipment.

                We had one in work on a bench for cleaning up steel sheet and plate samples for sparking, using an abrasive disk, i found it handy for all sorts including welding things back together, i have one in the shop for welding, its old and a bit knackered but very usefull, the machine shop used one on a mill for ali, they bolted the ali to a plate, less distortion than a vice and quicker to set up.

                  Yeah mostly, but it is invaluable tool when (rough) machining plate stock on 5 sides in a mill But I wouldn't use a chuck meant for grinding to mill things much, as the power might not be the best.
                  Amount of experience is in direct proportion to the value of broken equipment.

                    Thanks for the wise advice. Yes, I'm aware of how it should be used. The problem is that I'm a gadget freak and yet I still don't have a mag chuck. Somewhere in my soul it says that I must have one of everything.

                      Yup, you are about six hours away.

                        Solution: buy a surface grinder, then you WILL have a need for a magnetic chuck... Solves two problems at once...

                          I like your idea tmarks. I keep looking at surface grinders in the Craigslist ads. So far I've resisted, but mainly because I have no room for another large machine.
