I am thinking about mounting a 3" cross slide vice on the front (1" x 10") side of the lathe cross slide to use as a milling attachment. Has anyone done this?
I bought one of these but never actually used it: I basically wanted to study the design for something I was building. I think for $65 it's a pretty good item. I'll probably add it to a lathe I'm restoring.
how thick of a riser block do you need for this ?That is the Taig milling attachment for their micro lathe. Little Machine Shop does sell them for use on the 7 x 10 class lathe, but I agree that it might be a little small for an 8" swing - just depends on what you are wanting to use it for. You could add a riser block to get it up to the height you need, it would just be limited on travel.
I don't know about plastic, but the device is light weight.how thick of a riser block do you need for this ?
can plastic be use for a riser block ?
