  • Worm and pinion with spindle purchase

    I just bought a really good looking worm and pinion, bearings and spindle off of Ebay. Only paid 35 Euros. Photobucket is doing strange things so I can't upload picture.

    So not a gloat. My plan is to build a rotary table. At least that is plan A.

    The man that built my vise said he would help me.

    Now I need to buy a surface grinder. (He says while ringing his hands with a grin on his face.)

      Good for you for keeping in touch with him. Having someone with his skills helping should prove to be very valuable in your endeavor.

        I am looking forward to him spending time with me. He has been here and I told him to look around the shop to see what was missing in the way of tools or machines. Make a list and I would get everything on the list. We will see what is on the list. I hope he doesn't come back and say I don't need anything and we can use what I have. That would be terrible.

          It would be interesting to see that list... Some shops wind up rather well equipped and the owner doesn't even realize it. (-:

            Looks like good stuff, what kinda bearings came with it ? could not make it out in the pic,

            can be a little indicator about the rest of it because you usually won't find superior bearings with total junk parts or visa versa --- ugh ughm --- usually...
