kleini3: omg clean up the chip nuts when using oil
MrJoeGarner: Good point to make about the plunge cut, I had not noticed it before. Thanks!
Nicap2: Not such a good idea to have all those milling cutters crashing together in the cardboard box!
Dick Horner: I enjoyed the first 19 minutes of your video, but I didn't finish because of the crappy muzak when you started to mill the aluminum! I could have learned from the sounds of the milling operation, and not been subjected to the NOISE of the muzak! Not subscribing, sorry.
WaTch tHis: cool
Alan Fok: With a 4 flute cutter you can go at a faster feed rate. However, the reaction force on the machine spindle will be larger in the lateral direction. Maybe a bigger spindle motor is needed too.
Richard gross: was reading your comment on the one and only time you got a chip in your eye. I have been a welder/fabricator/machinist for 25+ years. I have been to the eye doctor 14 times. Everytime I was wearing safety glasses and sometimes with a shield or welding hood. seems like something flys up hits me in the cheek and go's under the glasses or once a spark landed in my helmet then bounced off my forehead then off the inside of the glasses and into my eye. always my right eye for some reason, lucky Im not blind yet. Anyhow I do enjoy your videos as I am picking up an atlas lathe this weekend and am going to start doing abit of work from home. Its getting hard to find work today that will actually pay me for experience. when ever I'm curious about something Im not sure about, I look it up here and find your videos. You put it in easy terms where anyone can see what you are trying to say. keep up the good work
Dave Pettit: I am a journey man mold maker of 30 yrs. I like the idea in general for the home shop. your speeds at the start of the vid were too slow.. I myself wouldn't use WD 40 as a cutting fluid. pick up some fluid made for working with aluminum. The vice isn't dovetailed all in all a good job. Oh ya get rid of or at least turn down the music.
Jacob Martin: If you ran higher spindle speeds, you would get a better finish.
Bill T: But it gets on the ways and de-lubes them!
powerkill2002: thank you.
Halligan142: Not the greatest, but it works. Plus it doesn't reek or smell like cinnamon and it's cheap and plentiful.
Brandon Hawboldt: WD-40 for aluminum, does this work well?
gohuskies583: Halligan, another nice video. Thanks for sharing your learning experiences with us. Cool new toy man.
Halligan142: Hrm...sounds different. I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the heads up.
allsortsofinterests: Not the mounting, but the use of the attachment is demonstrated by youtube user xynudu lastest video. He uses the tailstock to push the saddle so the pressure is inline with the spindle. It seems like a lot of vibration is removed this way, check it out.
Stephen Metsch: I have a milling attachment for my 9" atlas.
It replaces the compound rest and attaches directly to the cross slide in its place. If you are going to make a new brackets, try that route since it eliminates one level of play.
Great videos. Thanks.
Halligan142: This is not the Southbend branded attachment made specifically for theses machines although it is similar. It is a Palmgren Milling attachment which is basically a generic design meant to fit all lathes. Although it is the correct way to attach it I want to eventually build something probably using an angle plate so it does mount like the southbend original.
Jonathan Soons: In the South Bend catalog that attachment is pictured mounted on the cross slide with the compound removed completely. Have you tried that?
