Doing my bit to stay out of the shops or any other crowded place today.
So I have some ali blocks to machine to size. The reason why I have been avoiding this is the fact that
The base of the dial indicator is too BIG. I can not attach it to the mill spindle and move it up and down to square up the block.
I know I should use and endmill and just run ot 90 deg to the vice as the vice is set up square, but again my mill is too small and I do not have enough of a stroke to get to the bottom of the block.
But I have a plan.
I can remove this part of the rose cutter and make something to fit there.
And with a bit of scratching in the off-cut box, a bit if welding, grinding, drilling and good old filing it is done.
And from the other side.
And just too prove it actually produces the goods.
Now no excuse not to stay at home and finish the rest of the blox.
