  1. One and Done! Completed in a single operation

    I was doing this part in multiple operations and just got tired of it. I changed things up and was able to get it done in one operation. Sort of had to dance the .030" slitting saw in and around...

    DaneilG, It is a flat platter with two 1/4-28 holes and two .2505 holes that are on location to center the 5th Axis Dovetail fixtures.

    Bob, I grew up in Holly just south of you! Now I live in the sunshine and never miss the snow.
    So as best as I can figure in my old school way is this, I put the manual index axis parallel to the...

    No pins to locate here. it has a drill blank with 15 degree flat wedge in a drill bushing that is .0001 dia larger and a 150 lb die spring to push it in and hold it there. The dove tail will fail...
  5. No plans to go with air indexing and M codes....

    No plans to go with air indexing and M codes. Keeping the cost down and accessible to shops like me is important. What is the function of a Super Spacer that you would want? I had a Yuasa Accu-dex...

    About accuracy, I'm a little kooky about it. I am getting the standard 30 arc seconds position and 10 arc seconds repeatability but think I have a grinder up in LA that is legendary and says he can...

    Thanks Guys! I was hoping others would see the value in it. I just cant justify getting all the set up for a real 5 axis but this is a bridge for now and working great for me. I have another...

    The 5th Axis guys are local to me and I really like their products. The D115 and D22 dovetail fixtures are basically a cube with two pins on the bottom and two holes for bolts that hold it to the...

    And I have someone to try it out. Looks like he has parts that will work great on it. Cant wait to see them.

    thanks,

    Funny you mentioned the Lang/5th axis 96mm bases. That one is in the works right now. But the bulk of my work is 4" cubed or less so this was my priority but soon realized if it works this well on...

    Yes, I use it for full 4th axis to reach anything I can and edit in an option stop and manually index to one of eight locations and continue on. It will take more of a heavy cut than the dovetail...
  12. Would someone like to try out this 4th axis fixture?

    If you make a bunch of parts in the 4"x4"x4" size range and have a 4th axis I would like to send you this fixture to try out and let me know what you think. Sort of beta testing I guess. Shoot me an...

    I find it hard to bad mouth Haas. Sure I would love to have a heavy duty Mori that is top tier quality but I see Haas for what it is and use it accordingly. I like made in the USA, its affordable...

    Well then I guess I should say how much huh! I want $400 for the Cheytac and $300 for the .308 stuff. Plus I've got a number of new Krieger and Shilen barrel blanks in 7mm,.308 and 6.5, Once used...
  15. 375 Cheytac and 308 DIY kits looking for a new home

    I have done a few of these for my personal use and just simply don't have a use for more. Is there some where on here that I might sell them? I did not see a gunsmith classifieds. The 375 Cheytac...

    My SK40 indexer on my S1 tool ginder has backlash in it. I need to get it working tight again. I am afraid to tackle if with out info. Is there any place to find info for adjusting the backlash on...
