A Lorch Micro-Mill that never was ...

Recommended Posts

Some belated thanks, gentlemen !

 

********************************************

 

I could not refrain from some more toolmaking. I will probably add various small attachments for particular purposes, as I am using the machine. Here is a small clamping table for flat objects.

It was milled from a piece of flat steel and the arbor for the 5 mm collet was hard-soldered in. The area underneath the slots is recessed so that I don’t need a wrench for holding the nuts while tightening the screws.

It allows to securely clamp pieces of sheet metal etc. for engraving or other types of milling operations. It can also be clamped in the small holder I made for the micro-vise.

 

You will see soon in the SMS WESPE thread, what sparked making this tool ...

Made a fly-cutter for the mill over the weekend:

I could have turned the blank on my lathe, but I was able to source some 6 mm-lathe blanks in the USA at a reasonable price, which saved a lot of shop-time.

 

Worked on some skylights for SMS WESPE that were milled from a solid piece of Plexiglas/Perspex and it works like a charm - if sharpened properly.
