Thanks Dave.  Next was to add the graduations, used a screwcutting insert turned on it's side and then after parting off the dial is finished.

Thanks Don and Bill and yes got some numbers on it, asked the inspection department at work to Laser engrave it - much better result than I could hope to achieve with stamps.

I've also cheated and bought a balanced crank handle but need to modify it to mate with the drive dog,

So nice to have friends in high places   ;), especially when they have laser engravers.

Thanks Bill and Don. 

As I said I cheated and bought a handle but it needed a square recess cutting for the drive dog.  The dial span on it's boss way too freely so I drilled a radial hole for a small sprung loaded brass plunger to provide a bit of friction.  Last picture is it all assembled ready for some rotary work.

The mill came with a slotting head so going to have a play with that next and try and cut a square hole  :noidea:

Setting up the slotting head took quite a while and had to start by grinding a simple chisel edge on a bit of tool steel.  Pictures show part way through the process, finished internal square and then after milling the outside faces to make a thin walled square tube.  Took a couple of videos of the process too.

Nice! A slotting Attachment is a pretty cool thing! I don't have one but probably am going to build one when I have finished all my current projects :) (which is going to take another two or three years I am afraid)
