I'm in no rush Bill. This is uncharted territory for me. All has to be perfect before starting. Machining itself will only be about one month if this part is done correctly. I'm trying to head off problems before they happen. I will be in contact the end of next week. It's a busy week for me because of the Marine Corps Birthday (Tuesday) and Veterans Day (Wednesday).

No problem.....we can even do one page at a time as you build it. That way any last minute changes can be done before we finalize.

Love the dimension format. The way some people do it nowadays makes it difficult for an old school guy to follow. Not these. :)

We are rapidly closing in on a start date. This one is the scope and mount. You don't need to do this one Bill, it is for my personal info only.

That was a bust, it's too high, won't work.

1 inch 40 TPI Tap and Die arrived today. These are to cut the Micrometer Adj. threads for the bearings. One step closer.

Yup, we started, no turning back now. Have to wait for the Base Plate (1.5X10X36 6061.) Will make all parts that mount to it first. This is the Elevation Adjuster. 1-40 threads being tapped. Starter hole is .9756.

Cool... (picture Bill pulling up a chair with a rather large bowl of popcorn) :D

May I ask why you didn't single-point these?

The male thread will be single-pointed Bill. The internal was easier done with the tap. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. Actually I was tooooo lazy. :anon:

Not a whole lot done today but it is spot on dimension wise. I now have a threaded blank and tomorrow I hope to get it to look like the print, emphasis on hope. Ball to Ball should equal .010 up or down. Ball to point should equal .005 up or down. One full turn equals .100 up or down.

If a mistake is made I show it to you. I didn't have a heavy hold on the part in the rotary table while milling. I got in a hurry and took toooo deep of a cut. The part spun and the cutter pulled the part out of the table. Moral --- If you are in a hurry, walk away and return when whatever you hurried for is done. I put the part back in the lathe and cut .070 off the OD to clean it up. Not that much harm done.

It's not like I've never done something like that... :rolleyes:

Not sure I'd have the guts to show it here though. You're my hero Bill. :)

I show my mistakes for good reason Bill. The new guy needs to be reassured that none of us is above error. I would like to think they get a kick out of seeing our screw-ups.

Just two flats to go and then ten 8-32 tapped holes. Yup, that's a left spiraled end mill. I used it cause it was a new one. Looks like I'm a little short on the meat to get two identical flats. Hmmmmmm. Fear not, for there is enough. (I think)

Bet ya thought it was gonna be a disaster. Yuk-Yuk-Yuk. Ten flats within .001 of each other. If I had changed the rotary table to index it would have been spot on. Now to drill and tap.

Save me some popcorn Bill.

Ten drilled and tapped hole and we have studs in place. I am using studs here rather tha threading the inserted handles for strength. I am being cautios because this adjustment nut must be capable of raising or lowering the upper slide table that could feasibly reach 60 lbs. in overall weight.

Bill, I think it's the same principle that every project requires a new tool, it makes no difference that the new tool has nothing to do with the project.;)
