Title: Work stop for the mill
Post by: KB on July 26, 2012, 01:44:28 AM
Here is a work stop, for the mill, which I made.

I designed it with built up components, rather than larger parts, because I hadn't any rotary table experience at the time.
(Would have been a good time to start!)

It has worked very well for me the last fifteen years.

I ain't no draftsmen, so please point out any omissions, criticism's, in the PDF below;

Edit: Sorry folks, I am having trouble uploading the 5.3 MB file. It has a picture in it which should have been re-sized, I think.
        I'll try again tomorrow.

They don't look sloppy at all. You should see what I work from half the time. Great idea that I will have to make one of.

That's a great idea. I had trouble figuring out what clamped the pivots, 'til I saw drawing 5, which makes it obvious. Thanks for posting. I'll be making one.
