Default X1 quick tool change mod

A quick mod to the X1 mill to allow for quick tool change. The use of thrust bearing ensure smooth operation. Even for crigorously tightened tooling, release only calls for a smooth twist.

Used the mill to modify the mill. Gotta love it!

Interesting, thanks!
I need to think how to adapt a similar system to the X2. I'm tired of using a hammer on the loosened draw bar to break the MT3's grip.

Simon,
There is an article in a previous Model Engineers Workshop magazine by Neil Wyatt on making a self releasing drawbar for the X2 mill. If you are interested I will find the issue and let you know, or post you a copy. I only have an IPad so unable to scan and send.

Barry. (Oldboy)

Thanks for the heads-up Baz!
I should be able to find that relatively easily, If not I'll be in touch

Simon,

If you have not found it try December, 2014 issue of Model Engineers Workshop, page 32/33.

Happy New Year.

Barry.
