Cutting 2 Morse Tapers on my DIY CNC Lathe
« on: March 18, 2013, 05:02:27 AM »
Needed a 2MT post for my new manual rotary table so I thought I'd have a go with my CNC Lathe.  I am very happy with the results.

 I am now confident to tackle any other Morse Taper (or other tapers).

Nice!  Thanks for shareing.  Did you borrow my bandsaw or do we just have the same model?  I didnt hear you come by if it is mine.  ;D

Looks good, Chris, a thought for you for curiosity.

Maybe blacken up the "store bought" taper and see what kind of "mating" results you get with it?

Just as a comparison to what you have done, it may show that the turntable is not quite right, and that your taper is indeed better than you thought.

Of course if the store bought taper is not of a high quality, then the whole test is a waste of time, but still interesting.  ;D

Hi Guys,

Brett,

I swear I didn't steal your saw.  I've had it for around 10 years.  I've done a few modifications including John Stevenson's adjustable stop on the jaws for gripping short stock. I have also extended the movable jaw to just brush the blade so I can cut even shorter stock.  When cutting very short stock, I fix a piece of 25 x 10 bar to the bottom of the rear jaw that also extends to just brush the bi metal multi pitch sawtooth blade.

Bud,

Good idea.  I'll try that.  I am very happy with the result as, when I lightly tap the taper home in the rotary table, I have to use a brass drift with considerable force from the under side to eject it.  I think it is very close thanks to CNC.

Regards
