    A lot of the cost is in the geared-head headstock ... if they did something like a three-speed with a variable speed motor, and drove the leadscrew electronically, should be able to cut the cost...

    With anything under 14 teeth there's going to be undercut. Measure the bore and report back.

    Jeeze, you guys. Just squirt a little juice on the ways and give 'er a shove. They don't weight that much, these don't swing 40" !

    They also chatter like a mofo unless you have a lot of mass and hp and push them, and they won't go into corners.

    For this person, I'll stick with recommending triangles ...

    Usually that's a symptom of unevenly ground lips ... and I'm not sure what you are talking about with "thin webs" ? Split points sure but as far as I know, webs are webs, unless you mean the...

    Triangles probably make the most sense for you.

    There, that cuts it down a little :D

    This is my own personal opinion, don't want to argue about it, but the metric system of teeth, aka "module" sucks balls. It's upside-down and backwards and inside out and stupid. It is much more...

    If you stick to inches, then translate at the end, it'll be easier. Module doesn't make sense.

    Or you could look at this as a good reason to pick up a Pratt & Whitney slotter :D


    Sorry, was trapped by a show called "Celebrate the Remaining Years". With a title like that, well hell ... Been...

    Metric doesn't work the same as inch. It's upside down and backwards, so you really should either do it entirely in metric or in inch then translate, but don't try both. Module teeth don't do pitch,...

    Largest I know of is the number 3, with 48" of table travel. Not like a 48" Bridgeport tho, I think they weighed about 8,000 lbs ?

    You frequently can't get the exact lead on a hobber, either :)


    Yup. I thought he might want to make useful stuff, but then he started talking 4" chucks ... In that case, a little mikron or...

    If you could get a little info on the pinion that would be good ...

    Frequently, on small pinions like this, they will cut one fewer teeth than you'd calculate from the specs. Gears with small...

    You can buy bushings with square or hex holes already broached into the bushing. They are mild steel, iirc. And cheap. If they have your size, that'd maybe be easier ? I can't remember who makes them...

    Hmmm. Totally common on boats, there's several different styles and creosote is not normally a problem. Maybe you didn't have enough draft ?

    I've known people who sharpened brand new drills because they weren't happy with the factory sharpening. Is this mostly when they are new or after they've been sharpened ? And what are you using to...

    I would be a prima donna and hold out for the smallest K&T universal horizontal I could find, and the dividing head that goes with them. Then at least you could cut helicals as well as spurs.
