Thread: New mini mill or use lathe as a mill.?
28/12/2021 09:03:01

Many thanks for the replies.Good advice there.

Yes I'm inclined to go for a standalone mill.

What are peoples thoughts on the Sieg x2 range..?

They seem to tick all the boxes for me.

I have a myford super 7 lathe.Looking to do some light milling work.

Would a new mini mill be a better option or would buying the attachments for the lathe be the way to go..?

Would light milling on the lathe be to its detriment..?

Buying the attachments would work out cheaper too.

Thread: Availability of a T33 & T34 Myford Change Gears?

Yes that worked perfectly.

Thank you.

So I have sourced said gears and successfully cut some threads.

Many thanks to Pete Rimmer for supplying same.

One question..

16mm metric seems to be omitted from the chart posted here.

Is this an oversight or will it not fall within the tolerances..?

Great information there gentlemen.Thank you.

Yes it is indeed the later model I have.

All indicators for such are present.

Thanks for all the replies.Very helpful indeed.

I don't know about the type of model gearbox early/late.

The lathe itself is 1974-1977ish according to the serial number.

Is there any way of knowing the gearbox vintage..?

So I've got an imperial super 7 with a quick change gearbox and am looking to cut metric threads.

Is it just a matter of changing to 33t gear..or is there more to it than that..?
