    Centering Rotary Table for Milling Machine

    Yes! You got it. Snub up the pin as short as you can. A little flex can put you off center also. That is not too small a bore to indicate with a test indicator. So, after indicating in your rotary table. Use your pin to center the plate(clamp lightly)...then check the bore with an...

    Centering Rotary Table for Milling Machine

    Make the hole bigger...sweep the rotary table....or...wonder where your error stacking is coming from. You HAVE to sweep the rotary table to know where center is anyway. Putting a pin through the plate will center the plate to the spindle....But is your rotary table on center? It has to be on...

    Right and Wrong way to "drill out" a full tang

    I think anything that disrupts that shear plane helps. Holes, fullers, etc., on the chance that scales were over clamped a bit...all the added depth of glue will help.

    Right and Wrong way to "drill out" a full tang

    Fortunately on larger longer bladed knifes you usually WANT the weight in the tang as balance is really more important than over all weight. I played and played with fullers on my Bowie model until I could get it to balance. i even thought about weighting the pommel area to get it there. a...
