    lathe milling atachment

    Hi guys; Here is my homemade lathe milling attachment. made out of .750 mild steel plate. It doesn't get used to often, the main use of it is for cutting the ejector groove in rifle barrels. that reminds me I should post a couple rifles I have built. lathe milling atachment-035.jpglathe milling atachment-036.jpglathe milling atachment-037.jpg

    I like the larger jaws on your version. Also, did you make the 5C collet chuck mounted on your lathe?

    Hay Paul; Yes. the collet chuck was made out of a old 1 1/2 double row drive sprocket for the 3d cam lock and the center part for the collet was made out of 0-1 tool steel hardened and drawn to RC 59. sure is a handy attachment.

    Yes, a 5C collet chuck is on my "future" list of improvements for my 12" swing lathe. I have a ER32 collet chuck on my 7" swing mini lathe. I rarely remove it because it is so useful. This collet chuck can be adjusted to less than 0.001" TIR when all the run-out errors including those from the spindle and collets are combined.

    Nice build you have done here, however (tongue in cheek), if you don't know the difference between an 'ejector' and an 'extractor' then perhaps you shouldn't be fiddling with guns.

    Turntable,

    I have been studying your photos of the milling attachment and noticed the addition of lathe way wipers to the cross slide.

    How did you make these? What type of material did you use for the flxible wipers? Do you have more detailed photos?

    Very nice workmanship,

    Thank you for posting, Paul Jones
