Finished fitting the cross slide

Post by Gadget » Mon May 10, 2010 4:17 pm

I finished the cross slide fitting today. It is perfectly square to the bed ways and is nice and tight with no play in either direction. Bed and table travel is smooth. It doesn't look like much change but it took a lot of work to get it fit properly.

That mill is looking good! Your work is inspiring me to keep working on the shaper. I'm looking forward to more pictures.
What kind of paint you using on it? I like the blue color.

Norman,
I'm just using cheap spray paint from the local hardware store.
