Tool Post Mounted Grinder
« on: November 01, 2011, 04:26:33 AM »
Hi everybody,
I'm a Toolaholic here is my first tool post on this site.
I saw this holder for sale on eBay  :dremel: and decided to build it to suit my Emco Maximat Super 11.
I built this over the weekend a fortnight ago, I grabbed a piece of Aircraft Aluminium 7075 (I love machining this stuff) 25mmX12mmX150mm and bored a hole to suit the thread on my Cordless Dremel 800 tool, the thread was 3/4X12tpi, (Check your own Dremel as there are 2 thread sizes 12 & 16 tpi) after machining the thread, I needed to make a spud to rotate the tool holder to round off the end as per the photo below.
This has been a very quick project, and with it being mounted in the QC Tool Holder it is easier than setting up my Tool Post Grinder to do small jobs, it also now gives me the ability to drill any part that is mounted in the chuck or do division drilling on the lathe.
Kindest Regards
