Lathe Milling Attachment




What do you think about this 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. 

John Scott: Thank you for freely passsing on your knowledge ,good vid.

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 carriage/slide/compound..

Robert Lowder: Well done, good vid.

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 going Joe

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 EndMills

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 done...................

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.

JASCOBAR: The adds on the net - CareerBuilder.c Craigslist.c etc. for machinists never ends.

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

caskwith: Are you able to bolt it directly to the cross slide? You would get some more rigidity that way.

cannonball666: Where can i get that 70's porn music for a ringtone? 20:04

Vet: When I graduated High School, all I wanted to do was kick back and relax without having to do any homework. But I realized I have no money to do anything fun. So I went to a San Francisco Vet School to get trained to make money. But seeing your videos, I am gonna be an internet marketer on the side. Let me know if you have any tips. Thanks.
