Nice job they look sturdy.


Thread: Toolpost drill mill attachment
16/10/2019 19:20:31

Hi it's solid as a rock no vibration even with a grinding wheel that needs truing up. It has a flat belt with a 50mm pulley driving a 25mm pulley and I just like making tooling. The motor is offset to give me more room on the lathe.

Hi I had a spindle and chuck given a few months ago and had a bit of spare time and made a useful bit of kit. I have tried drilling milling and grinding with it. It is a little bit slow for grinding at only 4000 rpm but it does work on all three operations.

Hi David welcome to the forum. What are your interests I am interested in tooling, repairing things and have just started to look at jewelry making, as well as looking at model steam engines. It all helps to keep one busy.


Thread: What are these pliers for
15/10/2019 09:15:40

They are two solid jaws like ordinary pliers, jaws rough hex shape and with a slot machined through. There is a PF logo in a triangle logo embossed on the handle.

In the past I have fitted these to many machines for 5 meter long boring machines to surface grinders just use the basic clamps and make your own brackets from pieces of ally angle and plate to suit machine. You can get a single ended mount scale but only if you have 12 inch or less movement. Have a look on Newell web site.

Hi John, can you use an extension perhaps an aluminium extrusion to move the scale backwards so that you can still get to the compound lock nuts. As long as the scale moves with the slide or the reader head moves it dosn' t mater that it is sticking out the back as long as it is sturdy.

Hi Brian welcome to the forum. It sounds like you have a good selection of machinery. Where are you based as it sometimes helps to give local knowledge and supliers.

Thread: Tracy Tools Free replacement die.
10/10/2019 13:26:06

I have just received a replacement M3 x 0.6 Die. I ordered a carbon steel die on the internet on Sunday and it arrived on Tuesday but I was too busy till yesterday to try it. I only need one screw, in brass, for a small telescope on a walking stick so I thought that a carbon steel would be ok. I put it in my die holder and tried a cut but it was too small so I loosened the outer screws and tightened the centre wedge screw and there was a ping and the die broke. I called Tracy Tools and straight away they said they would send a replacement and today, the next day, it has arrived but the replacement is a HSS die not carbon steel and no charge. Absolutely magic and job done.

Thread: I am a metal sculptor and happy to be here!

Hi Patrice, beautiful work. I had a look at your Instagram link and it was interesting what machinery and tools that you use to make your sculptures on. Where are you based I suspect not in the UK just interested. I recently dabbled in a rotary garden sculpture for S.W. M. B.O. but not on your level.
