Hi all -
I’m contemplating machining my own part to replace a broken part on my PM 1022 lathe.
The part (without looking) is about 2" round with a flat spot milled on one side (there’s more to it where I want to start from square stock).
The actual “roundness” isn’t important as long as the bearing race and hole are concentric.
How do I hold onto this square? I have a fixture plate that’s nice and flat and I’m not ready to buy a 4" cnc vise and recess it into the bed of my brand new SO4 pro (I think mounting it on top of the wasteboard I won’t have the clearance needed). The Carbide3D toe clamps don’t seem ever be in stock.
What have people done for tallish/squareish aluminum milling?
