    D1-4 Mounting plate

    D1-4 Mounting plate has been made so the work holding devices from the lathe can be used on the milling machine or drill. This can be bolted stright to the table, angle plate or the rotary table etc.

    The Home Engineer,

    I previously saw your D1-4 mounting plate at your website ( http://www.modelengineeringworkshop.co.uk/ ) and thought it was great idea and not too difficult to make based on your photos and instructions.

    Regards,

    Paul Jones

    Excellent utilization of workholder; always a good idea. That would fixture a chuck, faceplate, spindle nose collet closers etc., orientated besides flat on the table makes it & them even more useful. Vises alone not that good with cylinders in general.
    I'll offer another. With a rectangular plate of somewhat thicker proportions, clamp mounted chuck over the side of table; allowing work on longer shafts than what a quill/ knee/ & part height accommodate. Tee-slots offer more strength than the mounting slot along front of table, per my front mount arrangement. That was created because our chucks were D1-6's and 8's, just too big and heavy. http://www.homemadetools.net/forum/t...t-holder-55207
    These work of course, only where the ram swivels out of 'normal' area over table.

    Hi Toolmaker51
    Sometimes you just have to find away to overcome problems that are presented to us. Also it is impossible to have every tool for every situation so comprimise and a bit of creative thinking, most jobs are possible. Sometimes we just have to think outside the box.

    Agreed, and as regular a process we can manage.
    I was corrected awhile back, thinking outside the box is good...yet visualizing that as a sphere increases potential reference points. This is per Frank S, also a contributor here on HMT.net

    Thank you for your interest. I have an original D1-4 drawing somewhere but it is a very poor copy. For the nosepiece, I used the main dimensions and had to adapt some to suit my needs. I will see if I can find the original drawing and post on here over the weekend.

    Hi Bart
    This is the drawing I used not very easy to read but I managed to make out most of what I needed and made up the rest. Found it on the internet. If you need further help, do not hesitate to get in touch again.
