Flushed with the success of the engine, I have been screwmangling.

I decided it's time to make a chuck holder for the rotary table. Also need to make a spindle for my Dividing head (from workshops books).
This is my first go at screw cutting, In came the Back gear and took it about as slow as the ML7 will go.

Then I started to Browse Ebay, which almost always lands me both in a great deal of trouble and costs me money.....

looks rather nice n tidy, yes it's a seller refurb but it's been reground and looks to be nicely finished....

Made the Spindle and the Chuck adapter yesterday.
That's all glued up with thread lock.

Made the base clamp today, again all between centres.

Final product looks good to me :)
