Still for the same project, I had to machine small cones with the compound slide.
I decided it was time to make this little gizmo I had in head to stop manually cranking endlessly this small double pin wheel my compound has.
I made this little tool out of scrap pieces, it's a little like a T allen wrench, the transverse bar is made out of square stock, with two holes that fit the two pins of the wheel. The shaft is made of an old Ikea like allen key, that unexpectedly found a real use here.
And the motorization is made with a very cheap 4V Lithium screw driver I found for less than 20€.
I would say this changes life !
