Hey all was looking to make myself a 36" radius platten. I have access to a Bridgeport ez path mill. Was hoping to find either an established tool path program or just the geometry involved. Thank in advance.
ps wish the machine WAS mine to use all the time.
So Ed I get what you are saying I understand what you are saying. I also am under the impression there is no perfect answer. It's a little of this and a little of that.
But I would sure like to have clearer info.
I am trying bronze washer. BUT want to use bearings.
HOW do you use bearings in a...
So tried to send an email and after typing 3 paragraphs the message got lost. But anyway. Thank for the help. The o only other idea I had was a pressed in headed pivot with a bolt on one side. But then I would have to build a fixture to cut the headed pivot. Thanks

So maybe old and hashed out. But pressed pivot bushing in one liner. Then how tight or its it till the screw bottoms out. I have been trying threaded bushings/pivots. Screws on both liners no press fit. Bronze washer. Blade plus washers screw both sides in liners. Please what am i missing. Its...
Hello so this is where i am at. You just use a threaded pivot how long does the pivot extend into the liners or just on one side ?? Would help if someone in sc would open up their shop like the westerner do for each other.
Great question THIS is exactly where i am at. Please what did you finally do. for me i was using threaded bushing BUT did not press fit in liner. So what was your final length. Blade plus washer plus ???????????
I know this is an older survey and i am just starting folders and just NOW getting to the questions on the pivot but i would want is consistent parts and not plus and minus .0005 but consistent with in a total tolerance of .0005.
