    I ran across this modification of an Atlas/Craftsman 618 milling attachment while surfing today.  I’ve got 2 of this vise type and could potentially do something like this.  There are more photos at: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Craftsman-Atlas-10-501-Milling-Attachment-5025-Precision-Angle-Vice-10-12-Lathe-/160998516114?ViewItem=&item=160998516114&lgeo=1&vectorid=229466&nma=true&si=k11lqOUjF64IkAPiMCDrDy8nosw%253D&orig_cvip=true&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2557#ht_3049wt_1255

     

    Anyone made something like this?

     

    Also, this milling related ( I think) device jumped into my bag today.  (see photos).  There is no identifying name or number.  Looks like it might have been a different color originally.  Anyone know what it comes from?

     

    Thanks!

    Looks like a spin fixture, indexing head. Something that might have been used on a surface grinder or mill. Interesting little setup with the v-block.....

      The other item is what I know as a wirly jig. Used on a surface grinder to grind round stock(the reason for the v-block). You clamp the stock in the v-block

You clamp the stock in the v-block bring the grinding wheel down till it just touches and start turning the handle. The pin on the top is for locking at a precise degree, grinding flats

            one  more  handy add on is  a TABLE .for  difficult to grip in vise  work ......mounted  same as the  angle  vise .....first  one i  made  was w/ a dog  driver   usiong  a threaded  stud clamped in original vise...TOO much over  hang for anything  but very  lite cuts ...w/ proper clamping ,  i can easily  take a 30 thou doc w/ a 3/8 endmill ( full diameter..
              .)when i first  used a mill attachment ( 45  yrs  ago) , i thot it  worthless...( .having  never  milled  anythng  &  no formal training  ) ........ after getting  a  small horizontal ( 1200 # ) & destroying  some endmill in ascending  the  bell curve , i found it quite  useful  w/ in its  natural  limitations....
             best  wishes
