Workshop blog 11 – No 985

Filed under: No 985,Window to my workshop — Tags: , , , — admin @ 2:17 pm

This is the making of the milling fixture to profile the No 985 sides. When I bought this machine the salesman said it had screw cutting but I never ever found it. It is important to do the screw cutting whilst everything is still in the machine; I have to move into each hole co-ordinate and cut the threads by hand.

  1. Ohhhhhh! I’ve not thought of adding the handle to the chuck whilst chucking the tap into my drill press. That would make it a LOT easier to turn the tap, wouldn’t it?

    I feel like this is something I should have figured out on my own a long time ago. Thanks for the visual tip, Karl.
