    This looks like the best option for the steam wagon crankshaft.
    Rather than using a key for alignment, I am thinking of using a dowel. I can phase and fit the crank, then drill the hole for the...

    Hi
    I have a collection of 1" bore cutters that I can't use without an arbor.
    I suspect that Deckel arbors are all metric.

    Hi
    Thanks for the pointers.
    I don't have any horizontal arbors so anything that fits would do the job.
    If I need to, I will make them.

    Hi
    I brought that with the mill. It works well for the tables. I want to modify it to carry/fit the heads.
    I have a transmission lifter but it is unwieldy to move around the workshop.

    Hi

    This guy has made a DIY tool post grinder very much like what I had in mind. It is much lighter in construction than a commercial version with a mains powered motor.

    I looked at this quite a while ago. I don't think it's a bad system but I won't be fitting one to my lathe.

    I use oil wet news paper or paper towels. The grit sticks to the oil. If they get caught in something spinning, they disintegrate. Much much safer than any fabric near a machine tool.
