    Hi guys. I want to increase the functionality of the lathe. I have an idea, in place to set tailstock vertical milling spindle. In place of tool carriers to set a table or vise. As someone who will offer?

    Vyacheslav.Nevolya,

    I would recommend mounting a vertical milling head column somewhere at the rear of the lathe ways and supporting the milling head vertical axis near the center of the ways in both directions. This will provide the largest range of movement for the milling table which move using existing lead screws along the lathe ways and the cross slide. Then you can add indexing capability to the headstock and use the headstock and tailstock axis to hold gear blanks for cutting gears or put a dividing head on the new milling table.

    I really like what you have built so far with the lathe and now your idea of a combined lathe and milling machine is more even more versatile.

    Thanks for the series, Paul

    I see that you already know how to mill on a lathe (your milling pinole "keyway" on a lathe pic). You already have a two motion lathe carriage, in/out, left/right - all you need is to make an up/down attachment for the carriage. MYFORD used to make a simple one you could copy. A milling head at the tail stock end, or at the rear of the lathe will need another motor/gearbox etc. A milling head at the rear does have some advantages in that there is no height restriction whereas using the lathe spindle restricts you to the centre height above the carriage /vice etc.
    Just my ideas here - I can see by the excellent work that you have already done that you are more skilled than I will ever be. I am really impressed by someone who builds there own lathe then casts his own rollers etc etc and builds his own belt grinder and even cuts and glues his own belts. Haven't read all of your post yet but I am sure they will be equally as good.

    I decided. Vertical milling head is mounted on the frame, centered between the front and rear pastern. On a lathe made two shafts, gears with a mini motorcycle, a box of sheet metal welded 10-5 mm. Here is the result.
