Got to do a bit of manual machining recently. Parting off flanges out of this 16" tubing. These parts were a bit big for the Chin Hung, so I had to turn the OD with a left-hand boring bar, and I was dealing with very tight clearances between the carriage and the face at times (even tighter than shown). All got done, though! The one picture shows a finished part chucked back up: the ID dimension changed on the fly after already having a few parted off, so I was just opening up the bore.
If I had a sine bar I would have used that but here's how I trammed my mill head to a specific degree with reasonable accuracy. I set up a dial indicator on the high spot of the quill and set it to zero. Then I lowered the knee exactly 1 inch. That should give me an indicator reading of .1227 (short leg of the triangle or TAN of 7 degrees) #machining#workshop#bridgeportmill#math#maker#machinist
No matter how careful your operators are, there is always the potential for risk in the workplace. Your operators need to be able to start, stop, and reverse machines at a moment's notice.
Our selection of high-quality emergency stops and other electrical safeguarding products gives you solutions you need to help prevent an accident from happening. (Link in bio.)
The high flute count and strong core of our HSF-7 product line makes this tool excel in finishing applications. These tools are also optimized for light profiling and are great in your HEM toolpaths.
Pictured here is our 3/4" diameter option which features a 3-1/4" length of cut and a 6x overall reach.
We are honored to work with the Gene Haas Foundation to be able to impact our local area schools! This $40,000 scholarship, presented by our very own Joe Sommers and Ken Wawrzyniak, will help students with financial aid and getting materials for classes and competitions!

Big thanks for the big check from the Gene Haas Foundation for Computer Integrated Machining scholarships and @skillsusa.pa | @skillsusa competition team at Thaddeus Stevens College. We are super excited. @haas_automation | @phillipscorporation .
Got the rotor out of the 7.5HP motor from the K&T mill and started cleaning it up. Man this thing was dirty. So dirty it wouldn't even turn at 1st. Bearings look and feel good. Has a broken ductile iron ring that I think is just a seal. Going to need to make a new one tonight on the lathe. The windings were completely packed with grease and dirt from 70 years of accumulation. Cleaning up nice, just got to be careful and not damaged the insulation on them. Got to check the windings and finish cleaning the other end.👍 #manualmachinist#machinist#tools#Kearney#motor#repair
Making some stainless steel ferrules for my file handles. The improved lathe is really a huge step forward, the new heavy chip tray make the machine base more stiff and takes down the vibrations to a minimum. Next step is to make some covers for the machine ways like I saw in @robinrenzetti and @stefan_gtwr videos... #instatoolmaker#instamachinist#machinist#machining#machineshop
