I have a love-hate relationship with these wedge block tool holders.
Found when I added one that the handle interfered with another one.
So I found the angle wrote a macro and machined 3 new holes 90 degrees apart @ 74 degrees in this case. (that must be... China 75 degree)

Now have this machine configured to be setup as a lathe or a mill (in this case I ran it as a mill using X & Z to feed in and out)
z=x
x=y
y=z
c=a
a=b
b=c

Thanks, I still can add two more controllable drives  ;D

here is that macro I wrote, thought others might like to see it or adapt it to their needs.

By changing a couple of variables and making sure where your part hole center line and the hole face is, this will peck at any X Z angle.

Russ do you recognize  these?  ;)

Made a few, and a few extra so I can get back to that Laser build project. (Thanks again for the extrusion)

damn poor Photo shows the ID hex turned with a single point tool on the lathe.
Video shows the turning, threading, center hole and cross hole operations.

Yes I Do !
IIRC, pretty pricey from Phoenix Mechano.

I was just recently thinking of giving you a bump on that other project, hope to see some progress reports soon.

Sure was good to see someone make good use of that aluminum. I had far more than I would ever need. (famous last words)

Fancy schmancy little machine you got there. A hybrid, mutant, crossbred looking device. Better not make it too smart, it might turn on you one day. (and watch that sweatshirt sleeve)  ;)

Good job, thanks for posting Craig,
Russ
