Tapping Stand

Look for a setscrew hidden at the bottom of one of the belt grooves.

I used to be confused, now I just don't know.

You might check there aren't 2 screws in there. Not uncommon to have one on top of the other in a 'locking' arrangement.

BTW Any reason why this is in ' Announcements & Issues' Shows etc??

Doesn't really matter much I think ... MODs'll shift it if they want to.  :thumbup:

Johns Idea worked but instead of using a puller we levered it away with screwdrivers

On this drill the coil is too strong to push from above so we need to take it out and weaken it

We then took off 2 of the 3 handles. I saw that we could use them on our lathe, as the tool change block needs a thin but strong item to tighten it and offen they bend and we need to make new ones.

Hi Dan,

See http://madmodder.net/index.php/topic,607.msg2864.html#msg2864

The method requires that your photos are hosted somewhere on the web (e.g. Photobucket).

Cheers.

We then realised that on the upstroke it would tighten so we had 2 put on 2 washers and lock them

Hi Dan
                  Looks just the right size for a tapping stand, good luck with the project.
                                                                                                                                     Cheers David

Nice work, keep us up on all your mods. A tapping stand can be used for more than tapping.
