taper turning
#1
           
i dont put much in here but thought i would just put a couple of pics in cos i know you like pics specialy when its a dirty lathe that makes yours look clean .
i just bought a taper turning attachment and after making a few mods and drilling a taping a few holes i got it to fit my lathe and have been playing with it .( the taper atachment that is )
now that i have it set right i am making a few morse number 3 blanks to be made into endmill adaptors , i will make 3 or 4 while it is setup main thing is to turn the end then drill and tap the end for the draw bar , get that done to all of them before disconecting from the cross slide , then i can take off the 4 jaw and fit a number 5 to 3 morse in the head stock spindle and put the blanks straight in there to turn and bore the rest .
these are for use on my mill drill , i only have an er32 collet set for it which pulls up at 20mm with these adaptors i can use a couple of 1 inch end mills that i have plus anything else i might stumble onto .
the steel by the way is very very old shafting ( farm machinery type stuff )at least 70 years old and seems to be a lot like 4140 to me , turns very nice a lot better than 1020 anyway .
