Re: Aloris-type tool post dimensions
- Update: Finished first of the toolholders the old fashioned way ...
sneaking up on the dimensions. So for those of you trying this at
-- Cut the rough slot 1.375" wide exactly 0.375 deep ... by this I
mean that the dovetail bit will glide over the surface at 0.375, so
stop at 0.370 and do the last 0.005" with the dovetail bit planing.
-- With a 0.750" diameter, 60-degree dovetail bit, the magic
dimension is about +/- 0.460" from the centerline of the slot.
(obviously, I have a DRO)
I took the tool post off the lathe and tried it repeatedly
while "sneaking up."
