|Scott's Atlas / Craftsman 101.07403 12x36" Lathe, modifications and projects. Stone Mountain, GA||Unique Visitors:|
Adapter to use 1/4" HSS bits with a rake angle.
Made from 13/16" 12L14 hex bar.
Made using milling attachment on 12x36 lathe.
I have also used the milling attachment to modify the Sherline cross slide on my 109 lathe. I cut 1/8" off most of the bottom to make it lower on the carriage.
Here's the adapter i
nstalled in a QC toolholder.
|Mill attachment in use. Was the first test with the regular chuck. Switched over to the collet adapter for smoother cutting..|
|Here is the piece shown being cut above. A bit of chatter. When I switched to the colllete chuck, it worked better.|
Here is a carriage stop made from 1.25" 6063 aluminum.
Milled a slot about 1/2" deep and about 0.385 high (bed is 0.375).
Lower area milled to clear rack. Screws are 10-32 x 1".
The top had marks from the band saw so i milled it down slightly. The camera really exagerrated the grooves. It feels perfectly smooth but you can see the edge of each pass.
All milling was done with a 0.25" 4-flute end mill mounted in the ER-40 chuck..
This was a scrap piece I reused, so you can see it is a bit hollow. Does not effect how it works.
