Thread: Magnetic chucks on lathes

with magnetic chucks ,you also need to consider pole need to stradel a number of poles in the chuck... Work very well in grinders ,we add blocks to cover extra poles to act as extra lateral resistance

btw how out of round...guess enough to foul

We used to use "gauges" with tenth micron resolution with centerless grinding looked round on them but wouldn't turn between mic anvils.

any way back to original post.
Like the first reply said... SHARP TOOLS
HSS for when carbide just wont do...!
Oh any cut SS very aggressivly...get under skin and dont let it work harden.
Odds is you 'rod' is wire and drawn thus work hardened...sugest starting from larger stock and turning off outside to get at tamer metal. Say start at three mm big.

one problem with these " box tools"
They copy the incoming stocks variation onto finished diameter.
Thats part off why sliding head machines use ground stock.
Once had to turn 6.5 to 1.2 mm taper over 150mm.
So far so good.
Stock was Nominally 6.8mm 0.8 mm hole down middle "sort of"
And worst.stuff was poly could tie it in knots....

ah..diode assy. swings on horizontal axis like pendulum..misbalanced thus "centifugal" force tips diode etc over.
Prefer fixed angle and change "ride height" to change ring diameter...still good idea

huh? "adjust the circle diameter by changing the spindle speed"
REALLY want to know how that works....What rpm you got that can cause relativistic effects on say 1m radius.

Thread: Drilling Vise improvements question
15/01/2012 17:38:40
no expert but my guess
jaws parrallel to each other and square to clamp screw all perp. to slide of jaws.
Check/ fixfirst then at least vise holds well.

Use angle blocks clamped to mill bed..then clamp vise to angle block. Thus under side can be trued.Square to jaw face perp.

Then square off top to use as datum.
