Hello ken572,

Thanks you for the warm welcome to this forum. I appreciate the information that you provided. I spent some of New Year's Day going over the spec sheets on the various 3-in-1's that you mentioned. Thanks for the help.

Dave,

I believe the Mill section is hieght adjustable and once
set needs the extra bridge strength. (I think) :|

Hello Ken,

Thanks for pointing out the YouTube link. I enjoyed viewing the milling operation. It appears that when milling with a 3-in-1, arranging proper support of the work piece to be close to the cutter can be a challange. How have you typically set up your HF for milling?

I did happen to see a picture of a Clarke 3-in-1 on ebay. Has that already been added to your list?

If you stay within the design/size limits of the machine it is no different then
setting up any other machine, use of a vice, a indexing/turntable, 1-2-3 blocks,
shims, clamping kit etc. With or without any of the above fixtures, or any other
SAFE FIXTURE CONFIGURATION you can come up with to get the job done.
Every job you do will be a little different, you might have to think out of the box
and be creative at times. :wink:

All of the (UK) Clarke 3 in 1 lathe mill drill multi-purpose machines that I have
seen have been smaller then the HF44142 Type Family of machines that I listed
for you.

NOTE: If you find one in the HF44142 Type Family of machines that I don't
have listed, please post the info, pics, and links so we can compare it with ours.

This looks like the one on the I. CH Motion Website http://www.ichmo.com/Products/info/id/4 ... 111B/.html

or possibly from SDMEC Sound Metals & Machinery Inc.
http://www.hardware-wholesale.com/d-p11 ... e_machine/
If you find any more information about these machines or have heard of the companies I would be interested, as it looks as though these have been designed around the mill first, and the lathe second. The A models do not have thread cutting capability

Cheers

Some more info for you, and another unusual one!!

Post by crackedmember » Fri May 13, 2011 2:47 pm

Hi,

Here is a text of an email I sent for some more information on this one.

Dear sir:

Thanks for your e-mail. We are glad you are interested in our product CQB9111. Following are the reply to the related information you mentioned:

1.Spindle taper for lathe: MT3; for milling head: MT2;
2. We only have metric model for this lathe;
3. standard accessories: 3-jaw chuck, drilling chuck, flat vise, dead center, drawing bar, oil gun, tools, etc.
4. special accessories: turning tools--USD15, disk milling cutter--USD15,milling chuck--USD65, live center--USD25
5. FOB Qingdao: USD1350/set;

As this lathe only have metric model, for England it may be inch, therefore we suggest you considering another similar lathe G1324(infinitely variable speed lathe). It has both inch and metric models. It is sold very well in overseas market. FOB Qingdao price is USD1850/set. For detailed information, please visit our website: http://www.jinxingjichuang.com or see the attachment.

Now that's a weird looking thing -- Horizontal Mill with a fixed tailstock for lathe work? Bet it's fun to align the centres each time you want to turn something. Not sure how you cut threads -- some sort of gearing on the table feed screw? OTOH, the vertical travel seems to have some advantages over a traditional round-column vertical mill.
