    Fine Feed for Milling Drilling Machine / worm gear on lathe

    Hi everyone!
    When I bought my milling drilling machine there was no fine feed mechanism, so I made one myself. One of the important pieces of the mechanism is the worm gear. In this video you will see the construction of a simple fine feed mechanism where it can be adapted easily on every milling drilling machine and every drill press machine and also you will see the construction of a worm gear on a lathe.

    Great job! Very professional. I love the "nose art" on the side of your mill.
    Stupid is forever, ignorance can be fixed.

    Nice work! Put a stepper on that and you could do some nice boring operations.

    By the way a very nice segment on making the worm gear.
