Re: Machining Setup's with Few Comments

That's a really nice indicator clamp you made, as well as your Quarn!

That looks like an interesting grinder.

Re: Machining Setup's with Few Comments

I also use the term "end gashing" (but with me and with what I do; that is a 4th and quite different optional operation to what is shown on your diagram). The "Gash" is what creates and dictates the "Axial Rake Angle". Now I understand what you are doing, as I couldn't understand what "third facet"...

Re: Machining Setup's with Few Comments

Are you referring to the "Axial Rake Angle"?

Re: DTI Stand

Thanks Harold!

A different orientation of the DTI.

I'll most likely make a new mount to accept a dial indicator to have both options.

DTI Stand

I had a friend give me a DTI stand the other day that he had made, as he is a retired Tool Maker and now in his 80's. It was living in his basement and had grown some rust on it so he thought that I may give it a better home. I didn't think to ask when he had made it, but he served his apprenticeshi...

Glenn, not sure I understand the confusion over needle movement
For some it can be a bit counter intuitive at first for the needle sweeping clockwise to be indicating the lowest point. Especially if you are used to using a BesTest DTI.

Re: DTI vs DI

Thanks Earl! I was gifted a box of things last week from a friend, and in it is a small DTI with a 1" face made by Lufkin that is graduated in .0001" and has a total travel of .032" :shock: It is .004" per revolution with a revolution counter that counts eight revolutions. I've not seen anything lik...

Re: Ko lee surface grinder

^^
That's (pallet jack) what I have done with an couple of surface grinders as well as a few other things that don't get used very often.

It has two pluses for me, first being the ability to store them out of the way, and second being that I am 6'' 5" tall and the extra height is nice!

Re: Ko lee surface grinder

An S714 is an S714 regardless of it being right or left handed. It uses the same parts in a different orientation and will be in the same parts list. The bottom line is that I doubt you will be buying many parts for it once you discover the cost of them. I was given an old B&S surface grinder and fo...
