Re: Pioneer Valley Meet August 10th thru 12th

Re: Un Lucky 7 Stack

Oh! it was milled on a Bridgeport milling machine 1982. You would have one heck of a time trying to mill this in a manual lathe. Could be done on a CNC lathe with live tooling for sure. I just don`t have that kind of money laying around @ this time, or the floor space. I have just over 500 sq. ft. a...

Re: Un Lucky 7 Stack

WOW! now that stirred the pot. The stack was turned and bored on a 1958 Clausing/Colchester 13" x 36" no taper attachment as I don`t have one on this machine. I used the compound to turn and bore the taper, I.D. is 1.250 and O.D is 1.500 1/2 degree taper inside and out. The stack is 6.062 in length....
