    How To Remove Rust Without Removing Original Scrapings

    Hi guys, As many of you know, I wasn't planning on buying a Bridgeport mill, but then I recently stumbled across a super deal on one. This 2J Bridgeport had been used for years at a San Jose vocational school before it ended up with the private high school that I bought the mill from. The...

    Variable Programming - Critique My Code, Please

    I've attached the blueprint of the part to be made and my code to machine the 5 slots in the OD. My goal is to have a program that regardless of the tool diameter, programmed radius or # of passes/DOC can be changed with relative ease. I'd like to make #527 passes where each pass is #528/#527...

    Recommended Clamps For Kurt Vise

    Hi guys, Despite my love of vintage machinery, i am still keeping my 1976 Taiwanese Jet mill drill due to money and space constraints (1 car garage). I have been wanting a Kurt vise for my mill drill for quite awhile, but they were always too expensive. Since my milling table is only 9-3/8"...

    First off, let me state that I have neither sine blocks nor a sine plate/vise. This is a hypothetical question at this point.

    Small Boring Head

    My video this week is for a small boring head which I made to suit my lathe milling head ( http://www.homews.co.uk/page158.html ) It should also be suitable for any of the small milling machines, for which to my knowledge, there are few, if any, suitable commercial heads. A link to the video...

    Is There Something Wrong With These?

    not getting any feedback to a previous post I gotta wonder if there isn't something wrong with an Advance Rotary Table.

    Is Parallel Width Significant In A Milling Vise?

    I have noticed that 6" long parallels are commonly available in widths from 1/8" - 1/2" and am wondering if this dimension is a significant parameter for any operation when using a milling vise? Thicker parallels seem attractive from the point of view of being less likely to fall over when...

    Milling Circular Arcs By Cnc

    I have been making fly reels by manual operation of a mill and lathe, and am trying to decide if CNC would also work.
