    Default Low profile coax indicator

    My Haighton is a bit short on room between the vertical head and the bed (Hardinge TM UM owners will know what I mean) so I built this low profile coax indicator specially for it. (see madmodders)

    I checked it and there are a few small grooves but it isn't nearly as buggered as the tang slot. Probably with some emery paper and oil on a bit I can hone it back to new. Problem is that drilling when there is some chatter vibrates the bit loose and without a tang it slips out. Do you think the set screws is the wrong way to go?

    Default Dremel tool cut off adapter

    I thought I would post a picture of my "ghetto" Dremel too cut off attachment for my quick change post. I have to make 100's of little 3/8" long tubes from seamless brake lines for our work, and this system allowed me to use the DRO for measuring and the cross feed for the cutting direction. Works very well. I also made a similar attachment for my Mill, as well. Goes in a 3/4" collect.

    gr8job. Hard to tell that from the one in the magazine. How long did it take you to make it? Did you make it to print or modify it? Where did you buy the cut knurls?

    Thanks David, I got them from KBC. I think I have 5 different tpi as I do a lot of knurling. Get the plans & make one, if I can anyone can. I think I must have made 1/2 of the parts 2 times.
    thanks

    This is like playing show and tell, the pros on this site must be saying "wow I made that stuff when I was in training.
    Here is a toolpost mounted ball turner that I built a while ago. I recently redid it and have mounted a RNMG insert on the end of a tapered cone. This was a big change for the tool. Since most of it's use is to round the ends of shafts rather than making balls it cuts better & puts all the pressure on the cone which is larger on the side that takes all the pressure.

    The 2 knurled brass caps are oil ports & are threaded in.

    Default Height gauge

    You won't know how handy it is until you've made one...

    Simple length of tube turned and faced with grooves to set tool height.

    Bill,
    That should simply not be allowed! Makes to much sense and to easy to make. I for one will refuse to make one..........today.

    Sadly, I can't claim it as my idea. One guy (Bodstandard) came up with the idea of using a turned and faced piece as a simple square, and another guy (Jon-Som) suggested scribing a line on it to mark the tool height.

    Hello

    On a similar line to the grooved turned tube (far too simple, logical and easy), see here for my version (satisfyingly complicated).

    This is my un-made shop made tool.

    Can't say it is a shop made tool but a little trick I have found that gets the tool on center is to stick a 6" scale between the tool and the work piece. When the scale stands vertical it is on center. Usually this gets it good enough.

    I have been using a similar device for a few months in my shop. I first used a groove to set the tool height but later found it to be a little easier to get the tool set at just the right height if the tube is faced off at the set height. Then you can use your finger to feel if the tool is right on or a tad low or high. But either set up is miles ahead of any other method I have used.

    Mine is not quite as shiny though

    No not stainless, I just wanted the paint to stick. It weighs about 300 lbs and has 5hp motor and loves knuckles.
