Zee That's just crazy talk. You NEED the spindexer. Keep going down that road and you'll be questioning the need for a second mill or lathe. Just stop that. Somebody's S.O. might read that... there are th_rulze !zeeprogrammer said:Time again for the Spindex.
Another thought...I'm wondering why I can't make the parts for the mill engine by using the rotary table on its side. (But that's beside the point.)
Du sprichst Deutsch wie Spanisch Kuh, John but no matter. German brothels have very high standards. Spare yourself the walk.John Stevenson said:My technical German is reserved to" Der titsufloppen mit der handucranken" which I am lead to believe is to ask directions to the nearest brothel ?

["That's the neighbourhood gone.............Sigh", indeed.]
Ah but you did anyway. (And drat...I guess I should've used metric.) I wish my German was better. Particularly sad given my background. Oh...and where were you a few days ago when I needed you?! Faffing about?mklotz said:[Please notice that I didn't say anything about the metrically challenged Dummkopf who assaulted the table with his Bohrer.]
you can buy short drill bitszeeprogrammer said:So I'm thinking of getting some drill bits and cutting them short with...with...the angle grinder!
Sir, gentlemen never faff! Only ugly old mechanics from Nottingham faff, though, truth be told, they do it rather well. Besides, you're supposed to puzzle stuff like this out when you do the design analysis. Then you come up with those ALL CAPS dicta in your shop notebook:Oh...and where were you a few days ago when I needed you?! Faffing about?
That's the beauty of the plate idea. All you need to do is whack two threaded holes into the base so you can screw the plate fast with (counterbored) SHCS. Lay out the holes, punch 'em through with a hand drill and run a tap in.Anyway...the problem I'm having is drilling. Not enough Z in the mill. I'd have to do it with a hand-held. My drill press is too small and too crummy. And we both know what happens when I drill.
Ah. Well then that just leaves us to determine if... :big:mklotz said:Sir, gentlemen never faff!
A very good tip. Thanks.mklotz said:IF IT'S TOO DIFFICULT TO DRILL HOLES IN THE PART, DRILL THE HOLES IN SOME EASY PIECE AND ATTACH IT TO THE PART.
And the German for the technical word 'whack' is? (You've got engineering blood in you...you know what it means when some one says...'all you have to do is' :big: At work I immediately triple the quoted time.)mklotz said:All you need to do is whack
