Thread: what size vice for mill
29/10/2020 15:05:33

The reason im going for the er32 collet chuck is that I want one for my lathe, so two for the price of one.

All part of the excitement

Already on list with ER32 collet chuck, 123 blocks, angle block etc, also thinking of adding DRO. Peter

The 3 inch radial from Arc, it is not as big as the 3 inch Versatile from the same supplier

Thanks Jason, I will go for the 3" with it only being a small mill and i`m only building small scale steam loco`s (16mm) It`s man thing I think, always wanting something bigger smiley Peter

Just bought a mini mill XJ12-300 and the table size is 460 x 112mm, what would be the biggest vice I could reasonable put on it. Many thanks, Peter

Just wondering if I could use one of those cheap 1/2 ton arbor presses to set rivets in some thin plate. Peter

Just a quick update, I have taken the bull by the horns and bought a Amadeal XJ12-300 mill, just the right size for me and to get it in my workshop had a major sort out. Happy days. Peter

Thanks John

hi, can anyone tell me what would be the best way to join two pieces of 0.50mm stainless steel together other than riveting. I am making a 1/24th scale fairground ride called a Skid and have used stainless for the bodies of the cars (two pieces) probably should have used brass, but all I had was the stainless. Peter

Thanks, I was considering a set of collets. Peter

Decided to go for the ER 32 lathe chuck and vertical slide. Like "old mart" said when I can afford a mill I can sell these bits on. By the way Doug, no theres no canoe in the rafters of my shed, only model aircraft and boats mate (no where else to put them) Peter

Thanks again gents, Looking into ER setup and a decent vertical slide, i`m so glad I came on this group. Its a bit daunting to a novice like me but we are never too old to learn. Peter

dscf1856.jpgMany thanks for all the advice, I shall have to give this some serious thought. The work I will be doing on my lathe is only light (making 16mm scale steam locos) so a vertical slide might just get the work done without having to go cap in hand to she who must be obeyed for the best part of a grand for a mill. The thought never crossed my mind about chucking. Once again thanks for your time and valuable information. Peter. PS I dont think I have room for a mill in the shed.
