From what I can tell that will make you anything you want.
Thanks for the reply JB56. This is only a hobby, I just like fiddling with old bikes. I am in Australia.JB56 said:Thanks for the pics of the RD. That is just awesome. The build is coming along very nicely. Do you do this for a living or is it just a hobby and where are you located? In the US?
Thanks Sonic.SONIC. said:Very nice!
Are you CNC milling parts or manually?
That would be nice. Mine always wonders why I get so many packages a few times a week.Pete12 said:It was a little hard to justify buying this machine just for hobbies, but I have a great wife who really doesn't mind what I buy for the workshop, which makes life easy.
That's what I figured but wasn't 100%.Pete12 said:Thanks Sonic.
I appreciate your confidence but I am nowhere near a good enough machinist to be able to make those parts on a manual mill. I bought this used Delta turret mill with a ProtoTRAK 3 axis controller about 4 years ago, but had it in storage until recently as I have just built a new house.
I am just getting used to running it and have only used it in two axis mode as that mode is conversational programming and really quite easy. I do plan on learning how to program it in three axis mode, but that will be when I have finished this current project. Up until getting this mill running I made all my parts with the bandsaw, hacksaw, drill press and files, but wow, this is so much quicker and easier
