Thread: Combined Lathe & Mill
22/11/2017 19:55:33


Although I do not have the Warco one, I have the Seig C8/X2 based mill which is fixed to the bed. I have only had it about 2 months and still getting to grips with it, however, my first impressions are that it is pretty good. Obviously I am limited on the amount of metal removal I can do, but on the most part this is not an issue for me as most of my milling is on ally alloy.

Bear in mind that for mounting larger work, or fixtures you need to remove the tool post. I used my Stevenson indexer today for the first time and had to do this. Fortunately my small toolmakers vice (finally coming into use having made it during my apprenticeship some 38 years ago!!) will just about fit on without removing the toolpost.

As with most things, it is a compromise between functionality and cost.

Thanks for the warm welcome.

I dont think Honeywell have had anything to do with De Haviland. Honeywell only make sub components for aircraft, ie. engines, avionics, control valves, whereas De Haviland manufactured complete aircraft. On an interesting side issure, we do see drawings marked up "Hawker Sidley".

Yes I am sure you are right that any question will return an answer. There are some very knowledgeable people on this forum.

Hello everyone,

Finally got around to registering and making my first post. Have been loitering in the wings for a while reading some of the posts and very informative they have been.

I have had a zyco lathe for about 13 years that my farther gave me which I very recently traded up to a Seig C8 from Axminster tools along with the X2 based milling attachment.

I am an ex Aldermaston apprentice now working at Honeywell Aerospace in Yeovil.

I plan on making parts for my twinshock and modern enduro motorbikes.

Best regards
