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. )
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.
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.
