Mini mill Stand SX2 Plus
« on: October 18, 2018, 04:45:38 PM »
Heres a few Pics of a Mill stand I have been Making.. Made out Of 100x100 fence post I found at the side of the road ! and some 1/2 " plate I got for cheap as the base. Side cheeks are 10mm i think so pretty beefy.

So my idea was to give some more mass and to try and stop some of the flex in the Head to the base. Also so i could tram the head to the base i put a couple of bolts in the top of the column ...One tapped in and one to push the column away. My thought was to aide in adjustment...works a treat. My only concern is if there is any twist in dovetails on the head.

Its a lot better having tried it today ..just wondering if i should fill it with some dense material.
If you don't succeed ...try try try again...you can't fail trying.

Looks good. There is a huge thread over at cnczone about using an epoxy/granite mix as fill...

Only concern is if I want to drill and tap any holes in the future ! Masonry bits at the ready!!
