Wow , thanks gents. So the shaft on my mill is tapered from 38mm

To 41mm using section A belts and should be 4 step.

Hi all-

I am looking for a few parts for a mill drill i recently got my hands

on. I am looking for the elevation rack and spindle pulley.

I realise this is a very long shot so any advice links or leads

Are more than appreciated.

Many thanks Guy

Good evening all.

I am doing a Hemingway's machinists hammer.

And getting a lot of chatter whilst turning the taper between centres. I don't get chatter on straight cuts.

Quite frustrating . Just wondered if anyone knows the cure


10mm tool carbide inserts.

Many thanks
