|Thread: Adcock & Shipley|
Thanks Gents--The lathes website is really good & I have found a 30 int arbour that takes 2 morse taper tooling from RDG Tools so I'm going to try that,hadn't thought of a self contained vert head & will see whats available before I spend money
I have a A&S Horizontal Milling M/C Model "0A"-can anyone tell me the type of taper in the horizontal mandrel is please, As a Vertical head is too expensive for me I'm wondering if I can fit a mandrel of the correct taper to which I can fix collets etc to use an end mill in This would be run from a 2nd motor to give the higher speeds required.Its the same sort of set up as milling in the lathe with end mill in a chuck. I think my m/c was made in the 1940's & only cost me £30 so has to be saved!!
|Thread: A&S Horizontal Milling M/C|
Thank you Keith--my Mill is there -I'll have a trawl through looks promising
Cheers Mick "h"
Good morning folks,
I'm new to the forum & this is my first post. my leisure time interests include woodworking/furniture making-Steam engine (currently a "Rob Roy" & "Virginia" at the Frames Stage),workshop tools & I spent 6 years rebuilding a Series 2a 1970 Landrover. I am a novice really with lathe & model engineering but looking forward to learning-seems helluva lot to learn & a never ending list of tools etc to get.
Anyhow my question is regarding a Adcock & Shipley Horizontal Miller Model 0A which I bought for £30 from a local company,they used it for batch work & it has no suds gear or power feed for the table, does anyone have any Manuals/operating instructions/drawings etc I could purchase or copy in exchange for "Coin of the Realm" please or point me in the direction of a company that supplies same.
I should mention that I do not have a home computer & use my work computer & therefore am only sat in front of it Mon-Fridays
Many thanks Mick "h"
|Thread: Band saw blade comming off pulley|
My bandsaw is a home made 3 pullied type,my pulleys are made of 3/4 plywood ,8" dia running on plain bronze bearings,its fair to say that they are not perfectly in line however I rarely have a blade dismount-the idler wheel that is adjustable to centralise the blade can be fitted with a rubber band on it's circumference in fact fit them on all the pulleys(an old car tyre inner tube is good )
& the pulleys should be domed on their circumference. I always turn blade over by hand before starting
