That's a pretty big machine ...


What is the brass part on the middle of the x-y-slide, a steady to support long parts when milling in the dividing apparatus ?

Hello, wefalck. Nice to meet you. This milling attachment I completed last year was originally used on my vertical milling machine. But there are advantages to using a horizontal milling machine for some parts. So I built this machine myself. The upper brass support seat is adjustable and firmly locked, and when machining longer parts, the small support plate is always moved by rolling gears to ensure that the support seat is under the knife edge, only manual operation is required.

You are right, for certain milling operations the visibility is much better on a horizontal mill, than on a vertical mill, though they would be geometrically possible on both types.

Yeah, and sometimes there's a problem with the clamps. In particular, the narrow components on the milling slot processing。
