|Thread: New tool post for my lathe|
I have a QCTP but only one tool holder so untill i have the time to make some more (10-15) its stays on the shelf. My current set up is 3 fore way tool posts all set up with the most common tools that a use, 2 tools in each holder. Its surprisingly quick just a whip off the fore way and change it with another.
|Thread: Any interesting lathe projects for beginners?|
A fire piston maybe.
Clickspring on YouTube have a good video on his channel.
Lathe tool hight gauge
Chuck key (iv just done this myself) not so difficult and useful.
Do a simple sketch with dimensiones and try and hit the numbers to the thou.
|Thread: Recommendation for Tool and Cutter Grinder|
Read a thread on here recently about someone turning their lathe into a grinding machine not really recommended due to all the dust contamination but if cleaned down properly I can't see any issue sorry don't have a link
|Thread: My Faircut Lathe|
Looking good mate
This is the sort of thread I was planning on doing with my faircut lathe before I came across the damaged headstock. Very interesting reading so far keep the progress updates coming. I still need to sort out the bits it's that you need as soon as I get five minutes in the garage I'll photograph what I've got an email them to you.
|Thread: Quorn Mk3|
Nope but i will now
|Thread: Grinding cup wheel help|
Bit of help/advice on grinding wheels and cup wheels please.
I like grinding my own HSS tooling for my lathe and shaper, mainly free hand but i need to machine a acme thread in a couple of projects time. So im correctly making a grinding rest to help me achieve accurate angles on the tool. The grinder rest design iv settled on is a mash up of several iv seen on YouTube and sites like this. So my question is what grit and what type/style of wheel would best suit my needs. The HSS i mainly have is mo max and super mo max up to 3/4. I should ad ill mainly finishing my hand ground tooling not hogging off large amounts as iv got a bigger grinder for roughing.

|Thread: Using a pillar drill for milling?|
I tried it on my startrite drill it didn't end well. Lesson learned
|Thread: DTI identification|
That's correct a mk2 I believe
I'd love a DRO but even the cheapest Chinese one are hundreds and I only have tens hahaha. Maybe one day.
I plan on using the DTI like this
Its metric 0.050 equal the one full rotation plus 27 divisions.
Thanks for helping out the novice its much appreciated .
Think its metric as it does not line up when mounted to my lathe as suggested by JasonB.
If any one wants to swop it for a imperial equivalent drop me a message.
I have the DTI but it doesn't say if its metric or imperial nor does it say what each increment is. Its very heavy and feels smooth so I'm hoping it's a good quality one.
Can anyone help.
