I am including this page for the benefit of workshop owners who do not have milling facilities, showing just what is possible if my lathe mounted milling head is made.

 

There are no essential milling tasks in making the head as even the ends of the plates and angle could be finished by filing. However, packing them up on the cross slide, and with a milling cutter in the lathes spindle, milling the ends of these for a less arduous task is  possible.

 

Photo 3 shows the stationary steam engine “Tina” that I made to prove the heads capabilities which I think it does well, as for me I found the project a very satisfying one.

 

The following link details in full the process of making the engine using the milling head LINK

 

I am not going to comment individually on each photograph as I think they are self explanatory. I do though below details some links from them to other pages on my site.

 

Photos 5 and 15 show a barrel shaped con rod with my method of machining the barrel to be found here LINK

 

Photo 10 shows my mini boring head. LINK

 

Photos 13, 14 and 15 show my workpiece positioning fixture for the rotary table being used. LINK
