Dog clutch for X2 Mill
« on: January 13, 2012, 05:43:55 AM »
I need to build a dog clutch to connect/disconnect a power feed on the X Axis of my X2 mill. I will be using a cordless drill motor and a pwm controller. I have searched the web, and found examples but nothing that grabs my fancy. Anyone built a simple, lever operated dog clutch for the X2 Mill?

Hi I Found this when surfing the Interweb. Got stuck in and fabricated one it works a treat. It is a PDF File created by "John Kruger" and published in "Home Shop Machinist".
