  • Wadkin lathe attachment

    Had a need to drill into the bottom of legs to fit T nuts.
    Made the following gadget to fit onto the cross slide.
    Leg can be accurately positioned to get the hole center.
    Drill bit headstock Jacobs chuck and move the cross slide into the drill bit. Click image for larger version

    Thats a great little design for a wood milling attachment, looks heavy enough to work aluminum as well, maybe a little light for steel. Nice job. Your brave to post a project here but then its early.
