Re: Patio's projects

Another quick project. This flashlight was given to me many years ago. It is my favorite flashlight. It quit working the other day, so I decided to see If it was fixable. It was. The switch works just like an ink pen, but the plastic part that held all the other parts, was broken. I was able to supe...

Re: Patio's projects

Now that I had all that set up, I still needed tool holders that would fit, four at a time. They are expensive to buy, so I just cut down some of the ones I had. I used the band saw to cut off the majority of the corner material and then use the face mill to finish to size. 20200410_174956.jpg Being...

Re: Patio's projects

Continued from previous post. This is the angle milled on the gib. It was drilled and tapped for 3/8"X28 bolts. There are also a couple of pins, in the block, used to align the bolt holes of the gib under the holes in the block, for easy assembly. 20200406_114145.jpg I made the square head, 3/8"X28 ...

Re: Patio's projects

Tool Post Block; In another online auction, I acquired a Dorian Quadra tool post, that was missing the handle. I bought a handle and it has since, sat under the table. It sits just a touch high when installed on my compound, to be able to use tooling that uses the entire slot, in the tool holders I ...

Re: Patio's projects

To have the collet closer installed, and still be able to open the cabinet door, I needed to punched out the inside sheet of the cabinet door. This is a tool I use at work, as an electrician, that I like really well. I have a hydraulic set up also, but this is fast and clean. 20200330_142315.jpg Tha...

Re: Patio's projects

I had bought a collet closer for my lathe at an auction, for a very good price. It is a jet brand and is made to fit a jet lathe. I am in the process of adapting it to fit the Caz. The draw bar for the jet is about 22" long. The one I need for the Caz is about 36" long. I intended to modify the Jet ...
