    Anybody have a tailstock for a south bend

    Anybody have a extra tailstock kicking around for a South Bend model A. I’ve been tripping over this lathe I was thinking of fixing up but have lost motivation as of late. possibly if I had a tailstock it would motivate me more. Or it might not but at least it would be complete.

    So my tig welding project

    Definitely could use some more torch time to get back into Tigg but here’s the Project I’m Working on. It is a skid plate for my motorcycle. It’s sure handy to know someone that has a CNC plasma to cut these things out

    portable bandsaws

    I love that idea of the swag table. Super simple. I went this way for attaching without tools but may change to that style. Sorry that the table is just wood in this metalworking forum but my selection of metal is not that diverse right now.

    portable bandsaws

    thanks so much, I am just looking for the measurements of the angle that the arm is at where it screws on with the 3 screws in relation to the pivot bolt, and any other dimensions that are on that arm would be great as well

    portable bandsaws

    I do have a portable bandsaw now and wish I would have bought it earlier. Mine is not a fancy one but it does the trick. I made a redneck stand for it so that it can be used stationary and upright. Now thinking of setting it up as well to use as a horizontal. The easy thing would be to just buy...

    New to CNC

    Yes that would be no problem if I used smaller bits. It would have to be a small sign though since the bed is only 30 cm x 18 cm. As they come from the factory it is set up with an er11 collet with 1/8" size. I would need to buy a 1/4 collet to make use of some regular router bits. I know they...

    what to look for when searching for cnc mill kit?

    Thanks so much for your honest input. I do want to dabble with gcode and the inexpensive way to learn this for me was buying a CNC router. It is a small 3018 pro but I am just starting on it. I am currently using Candle but have played with UGS as well. I am a beginner with fusion 360 as well...

    Milling Machine DRO

    Remember you can always cut smaller. I made the small mistake of trying to get as short as possible and it worked out but if you have the room I recommend going just a tiny bit larger as there are more mounting options. one thing to keep in mind is if you need a 400 then you have to consider...

    what to look for when searching for cnc mill kit?

    I do like having a manual mill and I love the idea of cnc but I am a total newb at cnc. I currently am running the craftex cx 601. If I was to convert it to cnc could I just run it manually with power off the steppers with handles as well? Is it best to buy a kit with all the adaptor plates and...

    project for the day

    Here is my project for the day. It’s a small indexer for doing four sided six sided or eight sided round stock quickly on the mill. The small adapter I made to go on my bike to adapt a 27mm socket for the rear wheel nut to the 19mm hex that the front wheel needs. I made the adapter before on...
