Today I milled the hex head on my drawbar for my vertical head. The problem came to light as I had no way to index the 60 degree increments to make a nice hex head that a wrench will fit on. I don't own an indexer! Then the light in my brain came on and this is how I did it . I cut a presicsion laid out hex on a piece of cardboard carton then cut the center out to fit my drawbar and stuck it on the back end. I used my precision square to line up the side of the hex , made the cut, turned the part and lined up the next side , cut the part an so on. Man, I gotta build me an indexer!
