"sting apparatus" for cutting keyways inside holes ???
« on: November 28, 2013, 11:14:43 AM »
I don't know what the right term for this apparatus is in English - teach me !  :med:  :smart:

but mounted on the lathe it should be used to make keyways INSIDE holes for the axle

I made it 'free-style' with material from the garbage can  :Doh:
and now I have to do some welding of the hindge til the 'tower'.

Google translation is avaiable to the right just under the menu line !

Some more details here:

I have a few modest talents. Knowing what I'm doing isn't one of them.

Actually, I think 'Stinger' is really quite a good name for it.

I need to break down and build one I've been wanting to do that for some time. I have been broaching using my mill but this looks like it would work so much better. I just have too many things I want to get done and just not enough time. Maybe after I retire I'll get to some of the projects I want to build and finish some I've been working on. :thumbup:)

Now it has a high priority but the weather does'n "allow" me to Work in the shop right now - simply too cold - alternatively do  :coffee: :coffee: :coffee:

Why not just put your cutter in the toolpost and use the handwheel? I've done that before and worked ok.
