Re: QC toolpost for Atlas 618

Steve: This is the tool post I use on the 12" Atlas. and a variation may be useful to your friend. Not exactly quick change, but a heckuva lot more stable than the lantern.

Re: 1st Post and ofc it's a "What the @%#&! is this" thread.

Pete is right. The table is definitely a Delta Rockwell Swivel Table #24-952 and the head is similar to the Delta Rockwell Unihead #24-955, but not exactly the same. Both parts were available for the Toolmaker grinder #24-105 and the later #24-822. Delta Grinder table.pdf Delta Grinder Unihead.pdf -...

Re: Free and easy to learn 3D CAD

Patio: I upgraded my video card to one with 2G memory and it helps considerably. Memory upgrade may be next if this is still too slow, but it seems to be acceptable.
Thanks for the tip.

Re: marking tools

Buy HF tools and no-one will steal them.
Or, buy a HF tool box and put good tools in it.
Or, just realize that tools will walk and buy extra.
JMHO. Remember. what belongs to everyone, belongs to no-one.

Re: Vise Identification

Harold: Moore tool co said that Producto bought Moore Tool in the 40's and all the old info was lost. They did say that the Producto machines made a lot of typewriter components. Spro: Here is a better pic of the "Accu-Lock" vise that I think I got from Travers Tool. The coolant channel and exit wei...

Re: Vise Identification

This is not a Bridgeport table but the Producto-Matic table. Same principle, though.

It even has the pipe stub, after all these years.

Re: CAD conversation to G-Code

Ms. Kelligirl: How is the G-code coming along? Hope you are making progress.
A few years back there was a Gcode generator called BOBCAM. I wonder if it is still in use and if it would help.
Good Luck.

RSG and/or Steve:
Looks like you have hit on a cottage industry.
Send a cut sheet when you get it off the ground. I'd be interested.

Re: CAD conversation to G-Code

Mr. Shields, your points are all very true. The Cincinnati T-10 was a 10HP horizontal with a 2 pallet changer, 2 45 pocket tool chains with automatic tool changer, an electronic probe and an operator that was really good. Not exactly a simple machine. I guess it probably cannot compare to a home sho...

Re: CAD conversation to G-Code

Long ago in a (job) far, far away, I was tasked with programming a Cincinnati Milicron T-10 horizontal mill. I was sent to Cincinnati to learn how to program the machine and I was also sent to a Numeridex training class in Chicago to learn how to use their software to draw tool paths and have it con...

Re: Next step to learn wheel cutting

Let me be perfectly clear, I know nothing about making clocks. Having said that, you might investigate the WORSHOP PRACTICE SERIES of books available on AMAZON. #17 is Ivan Law's book on Gears and Gear Cutting and #33 is a book on Making Clocks. A guy on Utube called ClickSpring has a bunch of video...

Re: Free and easy to learn 3D CAD

Ok, thanks for the guess. There was never this kind of lag with a local SolidWorks installation, but OnShape is a more powerful program. You may have the right of it. This pc has a 3GHz processor, 8Gbytes of RAM and 750Gbytes of storage space on a Windows 10 64bit OS. It only has an Intel HD graphic...
