Re: Milling Attachment

I haven't gone tis route and it looks like a nice item. However, it isn't cheap especially considering your time. If it is just the milling attachment you want and not the fun of making one, I suggest a Palmgren. I use one on my 10k and it is nice

 Does anyone in the group have any experience or comments on the milling attachment for the 9" SB at http://www.statecollegecentral.com/metallathe/index.html   ? As far as I can tell from the description of the castings there, it appears that one would need the ML-5 and the S4382A milling base, plus the acme nut for a total of around $150 plus shipping.

Re: Bed evaluation

Thomas G Brandl
 

Some how I thought this was addressed to me and from the guy in Minneasota
(sp). I was refering in the previous post about a horizontal bed I have.
Qbox is looking for an UND bed. Sorry for the confusion. Also, besides the
amount of wear in depth, you have to look at the eveness of wear and in
relation to the length of parts to be machined.

Subject: [southbendlathe] Bed evaluation


With regards to a 9" South Bend, how do you evaluate the condition
of the bed? I understand the use of the carriage lock to indicate
that wear is present in one area compared to an unworn part of the
bed. But how do you quantify (in .001"s) the amount of wear? How
much is too much? Can a straight edge and feeler gauge be used?

Finally, how do you evaluate a used, naked bed? Could a person file
off the ridge that forms at the top of the VEE and make a junk bed
appear to be servicable? It's a jungle out there.

Thank you.

Re: Bed evaluation

Thomas G Brandl
 

I'll have to recheck the one bed I have available and see if its good
enough to sell. Determining what I would consider usable or not might be
different than yours or someone elses. As far as filing off the vee, this
wouldn't take care of some of the other problems. The bed would still be
bowed. You would have accuracy problems, since your tool would be rising
and lowering during the cut. Posiibly for what work you want to do, this
would be a problem. I would say the wear in a bed would be somewhere is the
.005-.010 range that would be going bad. More than a few of the beds where
beyond that. I think the bed I have available has about .005 wear, maybe a
bit less. I'll try and inspect it in the next couple of days.

Quick change tool post quick response

gabil1980 <gabil@softdisk.com> <gabil@...>
 

Dang, its sure nice to have an information source like this!!

Two responses within a couple hours on my question about wedge and
piston tool posts and I'm very comfortable in making a decision on
what choice i'll make, the ENCO piston type, and be for the SB 9A.
I'm a backyard metalcaster, don't think i'll get any gov contracts
soon.

This does raise another question tho. What type tool does this take
for turning? In the ENCO flyer, is it the indexable carbide tool
holder (5pc set)? What size? 3/8"? Or will those import brazed
carbide things work? What size?



Thanks Folks!!!

Re: QC tool posts: KDK vs. Aloris?

Stan Stocker <skstocker@...>
 

Hi Bill;

A piston type QCTP has a plunger that shoves the toolholder away from the toolpost, locking the toolholder against fixed dovetails with pretty good repeatability. The plunger is the plate in between the male dovetails on the toolpost.

A wedge type expands one of the toolpost dovetails, the fixed dovetail always acts as the reference. The wedge type offers a bit more repeatability of settings (in the tenths), while a piston type typically repeats to a thou or so. Wedge type toolholders are a bit more rigid, the toolholder can't wiggle around at all when taking a really heavy cut. Generally speaking, most folks who don't push their machines to the limit or who have smaller machines get fine results using a piston type toolpost. Those who take the heaviest cuts possible on large powerful lathes or use CNC and want to have a tool change be repeatable to a very high degree of accuracy find the wedge type preferable.

Cheers,
Stan

Re: Milling Attachment

gorvil
 

Hi Okey,



I bought a set of the MLA castings from someone on this list and got the leadscrew and nut from another most generous member of the list.

Yoy only need the milling base if you also plan to mount the unit on a T-slot cross slide. The basic milling attachment casting set mounts in the compound spigot hole. The base plate has a spigot hole and can be bolted down on the T-slot cross slide.



I just finished my T-slot cross slide so I guess the next project will be the base.



Cheers!

Re: QC tool posts: KDK vs. Aloris?

gorvil
 

The piston type has a cam driven piston that comes out normal to the face of the dovetail. The wedge type has a dingus that expands the width of the dove tail. The wedge should be more repeatable and less suject to wear, I guess. For my home shop chip making, I don't think I would improve chip quality that much with the wedge.

Re: QC tool posts: KDK vs. Aloris?

Neil Butterfield <neilbfield@...>
 

Like you I was torn between KDK and Aloris. A lot of shops around here used the KDK but availability of additional holders was limited. I finally opted for the Aloris purchasing the authentic Aloris dovetail AXA toolpost and then I have purchased other branded holders, Phase II, Enco, etc. For threading and cutoff I did purchase authentic Aloris again, the AXA-8 threading holder and the AXA-7 parting blade holder.
 
I'm very pleased with this arrangement although I may have spent a little more than necessary for a home shop.

Does anyone have some wisdom (or opinion) to pass along
about  these two types of QC tool post?

I'd like to replace the original-style rocker tool post on my SB 9"
with a more solid, convenient one - either an Aloris AXA or a KDK
0.

I like the low-profile and true two-tool-per-holder of the KDK,
but...
I am drawn to the wide availability of the Aloris-types (and the low
cost of the knock-off brands).

Any advice will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Re: QC tool posts: KDK vs. Aloris?

Darrell Coble <dvcoble@...>
 

----- Hello everyone, I just bought a piston phase II for my 10K. I really
like it, it is so much more rigid compared to the old rocker type. It is
much easier and faster to make the tool change and get the tool tip set at
the right height. The down side is that this more rigid post will do more
damage when you screw up. I slipped the flat belt the other day and it is
quite tight, a Baltimore Belt Co. two ply , leather inside and woven nylon
backing to prevent stretching-nice belt.
A comment, I find that there are two important things necessary to be a good
machinist. First is knowledge of how to do the job, which you can gain from
books that I have rescued from various sources. Second is skills which
requires a lot of practise which I may never have time to learn. Have Fun
with making things! DVC
