Rollover fixture for vertical Mill

Post by MEdwards » Fri Jun 11, 2010 9:24 am

I built this with intentions of doing cylinder head work on my Bridgeport, but I never got into it. I spent a couple months of spare time designing, machining, redesigning and remachining until I got what I think is a very use friendly and rigid fixture. No wrenches are required to adjust it. It has adjustments for leveling side to side and a fine adjust knob for angle. The base fits perfectly on my 9x42 table, but you could take the outside locating blocks off and use it on a 10" table.

I'm asking $1500 shipped for it. Email me at edwardsmt@gmail.com if your interested.

Where did you find those lead screws and knobs? I have been looking for something like those to make a steady rest.

Sorry for the late reply. I don't get on here much anymore.

They are home made. I bought 1/2-13 all thread and 1/2-10 ACME lead screw stock from McMaster Carr. I made the brass knobs on my lathe. The lever knobs I bought from Mcmaster.
