I don't think so Tony. I got this idea from "David Haythornthwaite" Do you have a link to that one you asked about?

That is close but the construction is more complicated. I will look more at that one for sure. It's not too late to change things. I really need to look at the work heads. Thanks for the link. I have the Quorn book coming. This project is about to stretch out more. :))

That one does look involved, but quite nice. If I didn't have my eye on one already, that one would be on my project list.

I just printed out all 75 pages. That TCG is amazing. It is incredible how close it is to the one I am building.

I thought I saw some resemblance. Maybe help you engineer the missing pieces for yours.

Hope this is focused. Here is the one I am building. Kind of squashed but you can see it. :rofl:

The Bonelle is a beautiful piece of engineering. I almost want to finish mine off and built it. I wish I had seen it before I started, too late to stop now. There is one feature that I am going to try and incorporate into mine, that feature is the ability to angle the wheel head. If you wish to look follow the link Tony left and go to section "C". I spent 4 hours going over those prints. If you wish to build that one rest assured they are clean of errors. It can be accomplished by most of you.

If the tracking numbers are correct the Aluminum 4x4 tube gets here today, the steel for the spindle gets here tomorrow and the steel plate on Wednesday.

UPS came thru with the Aluminum and the Quorn Book is 4 days early.

Yes, the TCG I am building is based on the Quorn using the TipLap as the base.. If you take a close look at the Bonelle it is also.

An hour in the milling machine with a flycutter and we have the pedestal base. Took .025 to clean up the four faces.

Marcel;

If you ever get up this way I will take you to Wolcott and the scrapper I use. I get Aluminum for half what you do. Thank you all again for the kind words. I'm just another Bozo on the bus of life.

Bozo, errr Bill,
Your definitely driving the bus on this one. That tool you are building is so elegant I cannot wait for you to finish it and show us what it will do. I'm pretty sure a build as sweet as yours is way beyond my current skill level, but now I have something to shoot at for a great project in the future. I'm sure once my mill arrives I will dull a few end mills and cutters pretty quick till I get the hang of proper speeds and feeds with regular and climb milling. Please keep up the great photo essay and explanations, I can even understand them so your keepin it simple for the rest of us on the short bus... Have a great rest of the day!!!

Looking great, Bill. Just thought I'd show what my spindle is like. It's a bit more complete than this photo, but not much. The 'X' is where I added a handle for the quick tilt feature. Grind the edge of a flute, swing the tool away from the grinder with a quarter turn, slide the spindle back, more in again and repeat for the next flute. The spindle is R8, since I have a full set of collets.
