Re: Turning a chimney

Re: Turning a chimney Post by Le Corbusier » Fri Jul 10, 2020 2:12 pm Jeremy, is the tool post which you have for the parting tool something you made up yourself or is it a standard fitting for mounting in this location?

Re: Turning a chimney

Post by Terry Bendall » Fri Jul 10, 2020 7:51 am From the pictures it looks like the parting tool is not at 90 degrees to the work which is how I would position it. If my assumption is correct do you have a reason for that please Jeremy? Thanks for the question Terry Of course I am not parting off ...

Re: A machining question.

Well that is a challenge. What is it. What do you want it machining in, and how many do you need. It might be possible on my pantograph milling machine, it can certainly cut that shape, but the thickness of material is against it. Machining it in Brass or Nickle Silver even going about 5 thou at eac...

Re: Turning a chimney

A small word or warning however on using files in the lathe. They do the job but it is always advisable to fit them with a handle. On a small lathe such as those shown, there is probably not sufficient power to cause injury if the file gets caught in the lathe chuck, but on a larger machine this is...
