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
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.
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.
Micscience: Cool video. I may do something similar myself one day. This would
definitely work for rough cutting and you can then finish by hand or
something. Good stuff, and I do like the into music unlike someone else.
WaTch tHis: cool
newstart49: I wish the intro music wasn't so loud and the rest so hard to hear, or
better yet- quit using intros- it's just a waste of time.
Other than that- good video!
kemppaul999: Sorry man, I'm a machinist. Your not too bad is not good for any work I do.
That machine needs help, not rigid whatsoever. As far as collets go, with
the science involved in the design, tools do not slip. What you see in old
machines that have a groove cut from shallow to steep in the table is a
poor setup. Loose tools bud, tighten the collet chiefski.
lol morlol: better finish 26:45 because you went back to 4 flute and didn't climb. 2
flute plus climbing you weren't really going to improve final cut like that
John Scott: Thank you for freely passsing on your knowledge ,good vid.
MrShobar: No interest in tramming the attachment? That's half the job.
Robert Lowder: Well done, good vid.
MrShobar: The attachment doesn't appear to be very rigid, at least that's the
impression I get from your close-up video.
Glenn møller: Sir Great info video, Question : What speed do you cut at ? . on the
Peter Pan: HI Mr halligan,first let me thank you for your time and effort to upload
this vid,always nice to find some info.
What wanted to point out is what i saw at 14:54 in the vid,though i dont
have experiance with your brand of lathe,it seems to have an abnormal
amount of play,normaly it shouldnt be possible to rock the carriage/slide
or compound...whatever was moving...that much,sertainly not when pushed
simply by hand,now again,i have experiance with other brands of lathes but
i never came across that much play,could it be the dovetailslides need to
be readjusted to get rid of that play,it just doest seem logic to me to
have a accurat collet/chuck,only to get ruined by the play in the
alfngri: thanks man for nice video keep loading
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?
Halligan142: Thanks for the comment and thanks for watching!
Jacob Martin: If you ran higher spindle speeds, you would get a better finish.
Halligan142: Thanks for watching! I wear glasses when cutting and usually take them off
when looking at something or aligning something. I do have to say that the
one and only time I got a chip in my eye was while wearing safety glasses.
A chip shot off the work and bounced off the inside brim of a hat I was
wearing and went behind the glasses. I don't wear hats anymore.
Logan Adams: 21:46 climb milling
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.
Brandon Hawboldt: WD-40 for aluminum, does this work well?
Husky 120: бля чувка поставил тески на токарный станок и фрезерует кусочек железа))
Смотрите все как это круто
powerkill2002: thank you.
joedell71: I'm actually building a milling attachment for my lathe right now out of
stuff I found in the scrap bins at work :D
Halligan142: Not the greatest, but it works. Plus it doesn't reek or smell like cinnamon
and it's cheap and plentiful.
Halligan142: The one I have from 57 lists is as Milling and Keyway Attachment and in the
description actually says "Excellent equipment for the shop that does not
have a milling machine" so guess I was wrong. Still not a replacement for a
mill byu any means in my opinion.
Halligan142: I wanted to do that but the front of the southbend compound is super round,
but the sides are relatively flat. That lip on the milling attachment has a
lot more surface contact if it's placed on the side. I was worried about
the force of the cut turning the attachment using the lantern like a pivot
if that lip was placed on the rounded side of the compound.
Halligan142: No. It would be too low and the unit wouldn't have much to sit on because
the crosslide on these lathes is very round so that little shoulder on the
base that is supposed to keep it from turning while under load doesn't have
much to bear on.
MrFishbender: Hi Halligan ,like your vids always good .When talking about buying a lathe
and coming across an odd model or maker this site is really good .Machine
Tool REFERENCE ARCHIVE .You may already know this but maybe others
don't.Its put together really well and the writer really knows what he is
talking about .He points out the makers intentions in features and has nice
picts with it.Enjoy and keep up the good work . lathes.co.uk
Joe Duruisseau: Next time turn your compound 90 to the cross slide you will have better
control and not so hard on the dovetail and you have your in feed
measurement from the compound in feed as your plunge . Good effort keep
Halligan142: I actually contacted Tony about using his site in the video to illustrate
some differences between models and show whats available around me. Within
a couple of hours I got an e-mail back saying I could and that he'd do
anything he could to help. VERY nice guy and his site is a wealth of
information which will be featured in the vid :-)
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.
Halligan142: Hrm...sounds different. I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the heads up.
Nick R: Your machine runs so smooth !!!
Shawn Hawkins: My catalog from 1958 lists it as a "Milling Attachment". In the description
is calls it a "milling and keyway attachment" but that is the only place.
Everywhere else it is just called a milling attachment. Great video, thanks.
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.
not2fast4u2c: Nice tools I am just learning So I enjoyed seeing the different types of
Halligan142: Sometimes that's the best way to go. I've seen some people come up with
some clever stuff. Good Luck! :-)
bendavanza: No safety glasses? Thanks for posting this video. I have an attachment for
my Atlas but I have not seen much info on actually using one.
HansThunderbolt: @14.52 (rocking the attachment) "thats not bad" ????? LOL Never ever seen
that much play on a drill or mill setup!
Fred Miller: Very nice explaination of the unit. You are rapidly becoming one of my
favorite machining channels. Thank you!
Halligan142: 90% of that movement is backlash in the crossfeed screw. I was more
concerned about the movement of the attachment itself on the compound which
isn't bad. Remember this is not a mill or a drill it's a lathe with a big
chunk of metal overhanging where it's not supposed to on a piece of
equipment that was never designed to take the directional force a milling
cutter can put on it. It will always seem loose and floppy compared to a
mill specifically designed to take those loads.
Rick L: Thanks for taking the time to post these video's, very helpful, and well
John B: That little South Bend screwdriver set is cool. I think it was an
advertising thing. You can find them on Ebay.
gohuskies583: Halligan, another nice video. Thanks for sharing your learning experiences
with us. Cool new toy man.
bendavanza: I got a small chunk of metal in the eye once, and it began to rust. It was
very painful and required a doctor with a scalpel to remove it. I will be
checking out more of your videos, there is so much I can lean from watching
others. Thank you.

Bill T: But it gets on the ways and de-lubes them!
