|Thread: Tramming Milling Machine|
I did a search, but haven't seen anything regarding the shimming of the head. Just the actual tramming.
I just finished restoring a used milling machine, and i am still learning all the ins and outs of the tool.
how does one tram a milling head like mine? Do i use shims on the base of the post? How often does one need to tram the actual machine?

|Thread: R8 or morse taper 3?|
Also, i noriced some of these chucks have flat ends on the end of the taper - what are those designed for?
Are all morse tapers tapped with a hole one one end to allow for the drawbar? I saw some photos online, but the description failed tp mention whether they were tapped.
In regards to the most vommonly sized tool, is there one? I mean i know its a generic question. Most of my applications will be for modifying pulleys, building spacers, hinges... all car related.

Do the er25 collet tools also use a drawbar?
obviously, the er20 collets would most likely to be too small,?

I have an rf-30 milling machine, which accepts morse taper 3 tooling. Will it also accept r8 tooling?if so, what is needed to make it work? Which is better to invest in - r8 or m3 tooling?
I came across these in the classifieds - will these work in my **LINK**
what do you suggest i invest in to get started?
|Thread: Milling machine basics|
I just finished rebuilding a mill, which I was able to get at a really good price.
Can anyone recommend a beginner’s book for learning the basics?
|Thread: Keeping Shop clean|
I tend to do a little bit of everything in my shop, everything you can possibly imagine ( not just machinework). Controlling the swarf on my myford ml10 has been challenging, as I like a really clean workshop, as different projects require different environments (you don’t want to assemble a v8 with metal shavings hanging off of tool boxes).
I use a vacuum quite a bit in the shop. Do any of you here have a system for keeping the shavings from landing all over the place? Like shower curtains or something to that affect? I know it sounds weird, but I feel it is something that has posed a challenge to others in the past besides myself.
|Thread: Toothe broke on lathe chuck|
How should i be loading these into the chuck? I’m stumped on which sequence to do it in...tried a few times.
Which dimensions will you need from me? I would really appreciate this.
i figured that out once it happened. I have been trying to time it accordingly so i could still use them, but have been unsuccessful.

|Thread: Md-30 Milling Machine Pulley Cover|
I searched chester tools on google with no luck. Does anyone have a link to this unit from chester?
i can easily make the cover...i’m just trying to avoid building it because I have restored the unit and just want to use it already!
If you could post sketches, that would be fantastic. With dimensions if possible. I will check with chester online to see what they have.
I purchased a derelect, damaged mill from the classifieds, which was in pieces.
I restored it inside and out, but i am missing one item - the top cover which encloses the pulley system for the unit. Before i fabricate one from scratch, i figured i’d ask here if anyone knows where i could purchase one. There were no markings on the mill, other the the model number md-30 - i believe its imported. If i could find one close to the right size (which it seems this model is offered by several brands) that would give me a head start.
ill get a photo of my mill tomorrow, but i believe its almost identical to this one

|Thread: Replacement hand wheel for mill|
I believe it is 5/8” shaft diameter.
I recently acquired a used, import mill, but it is missing a handwheel. I’d rather purchase a replacement wheel than build one from scratch. The backside of the old handle had three little projections (like little teeth) sticking out. Where can i find a replacement wheel with these features? Most of the ones i see online only use a keyway to lock it to the shaft, which isn't what this unit uses.
|Thread: Myford ml10 vertical milling slide|
Are there any “better” options out there for a vertical milling slide, instead of the one direct from myford, for the ml10?
