    Slipjoint long pull question

    Hi Guys, I just got a mill and I have been looking for any excuse to use it. I decided to use a 1/16 end mill to mill long pulls in my slipjoints. Due to my process I need to mill this after hardening. I run my cpm154 at 62HRC so it is a bit of a challenge. I bought a carbide end mill on amazon...

    Thanks for the reply. I am not looking to spend a small fortune at this time (or any time really...) I am hoping to fully disassemble and rebuild it using all the proper lubricants.

    What's going on in your shop?

    This weekend I did my first cryo treatment after getting some liquid nitrogen. I began a tear down on my old surface grinder and I made a quick plywood model of my framelock design to test the ergonomics before I have the parts waterjet cut.

    Surface grinder questions

    I have realized you were correct about tearing the machine down. I was just being lazy... anyway I started the tear down and I have exposed the ways for x axis travel. I will keep going next weekend. There are some marks but it looks not bad. Im not educated on the machine so I cant say if that...

    I have been getting ready to make my first framelock. I have been ordering equipment and I built a new shop. It is just single garage bay but it should do the trick. Much better than the 2 tables I had before. I am also restoring an old surface grinder and setting up a new mill. For me this...

    Surface grinder questions

    Thanks good to know. I have been looking at getting some oil for my mill and surface grinder. Is there anything specific you recommend? I assume you just put a couple drops on the ways before each use. I just got the mill and I only got the grinder working last week. I am VERY new to any...
