Turret Tool Post
« on: May 11, 2009, 02:47:45 PM »
Hello All,
   Here is my new turret tool post. The turret has a spring loaded locking pin to align the tool station. Each station can be individually adjusted.

 The "T" slots were cut with a home made cutter, made from a 3/8" drill.

 The "T" nuts were mad 3 at a time and separated with a slitting saw.

Thank you for the kind words, and for fixing the post. It's so nice to be able to do actual metal machining now that my Sherline Mill is working. Until now i did everything in plastic or wood on my router.
