Walker-Turner Drilling Head Adaptor Plate Part 1: Lathe Work


123tn visningar9

    This project will be a 2 part video on an adapter plate I machined that goes on a Walker-Turner radial arm drill press that belongs to Tab Adams @crosscutvintagedesigns
    This is the part that allows thew drilling head to swivel on the ram of the machine. It was accidentally dropped and broken. I'll use a new solid piece of ductile iron and machine a brand new piece. Video one will include all of the lathe work involved. Part 2 will continue with all of the milling work.

      Good to have a hobby that pays.

    5. Robert DeBusk

      A nice new part to replace the old brittle casting. Looks like a winner in my book. Beautiful Job Adam. I'm sure the owner will be satisfied with the results. Just lack the mill work. Take Care and Stay Safe. Bob

      beautiful cut from the saw!

      The sound! We don't need the screeching 😅

    9. Eren Semonik

      Wow, that bandsaw is incredible. The surface finish looks great

    10. Important Dolphin

      Adam do you reservice the lathe every year for the bed ways flatness

    11. D. R. Ledbetter

      38:32 I seen the cut marks in shadow from your bandsaw and they do look like they are offset just slightly

    12. Ergin YILMAZ

      Hello again. I saw the adapter for your regular dial indicator changes to test indicator on your video. I couldnt find the video again. Could you tell me the name of this adapter? How can i find it?

    13. Mike Davis

      Great video,,,,,like your quick review of each process. Quality makes it a pleasure to watch,,thank you !

    16. Connor Everly

      @Abom79 can we get a part number on that iscar blade? There are so many different face grooving tools it’s hard to choose out of there being so many

      Why do you tighten the self centering chuck on all places. Does that hold the part more in the centre? Better pressure distribution over the jaws?

      1. Phreadrick Hejrick

        He did some testing when he first got that chuck. Apparently it's how the scroll settles in within the chuck and how it interacts with the jaws. It really did make a difference in repeatability and centering.

    21. Scott Pecora

      Interestingly in Russia I found watching their machinist they almost all exclusively used brazed on carbide as well as a lot of the rest of the world.

    22. Xlaxsauce

      do parting tools tell you the minimum diameter you can plunge into on the face?

      1. Phreadrick Hejrick

        Yup; he talks about the tool at 4:00; the tool specs give the range of diameters. It's a trepanning tool (curved, on the face) rather than a parting tool (straight, from the radius).

    23. Mewmew Designs

      This is going to be one of the few vids of yours that don't put me to sleep. Idk why but the sound of iron being machined isn't as soothing as other metals.

    24. Thor Hammer

      Why didn't you use a cut off tool on the lathe?

      1. Jack

        It a lot faster to use the bandsaw on larger diameters and it's a lot easier to get perpendicular cuts(parting tools would have to be adjusted many times to work up to the full diameter on a large piece). The basic rule of thumb is to run the lathe about 60% slower than you would for normal operations for that specific material. mae.ufl.edu/designlab/Advanced%20Manufacturing/Speeds%20and%20Feeds/Speeds%20and%20Feeds.htm#carbide_parting_example

      2. Mewmew Designs

        He doesn't use a parting tool over a certain thickness. Too much stickout and flexing.

      Ahhh... the soothing sound of iron being machined. And, curious how do you bill for your time and consumables on jobs like this? If you don't want to answer this question I understand.

    31. Alex Le

      Greetings from (the metric) Germany. Really enjoying your Work! Measuring in inches takes getting used to.

    32. Paul Watkins

      Ant Idea when part 2 will be available?

    33. Patrick Shaw

      Nice work. Another plus to using those brazed carbide tools is that you can re-sharpen them, which is a money saver over having to replace expensive inserts once the edge is gone.

      1. Patrick Shaw

        @C M Agreed but you lose the original geometry that the manufacturers have spent a lot of time and money perfecting.

      2. C M

        you can sharpen inserts, too.

    34. pmailkeey

      What a pisser getting something then accidentally breaking it. I know the feeling. I got some weighing scales and managed to break the unique light bulb in them :(

    35. pmailkeey

      After 5 years, my brother's back at work - he's doing pretty much the exact same job in the same building - but for a different company ! Being a daily commuter and keeping the car off the street, means bringing it in and shutting the tatty wooden gates. For over a year, these infrequently used gates have been propped shut with bricks ! During his first day at work yesterday, I made an effort to do away with the bricks and fix the bolting mechanism - and that meant some fixtures on the ground for the bolt to extend into in between. So it's 32 years since I did any electric welding. This time using a welder I've not used before and welding rods I don't remember - working on outdoor metal having a good layer of rust ! Being flat on the ground, there was nothing to clamp the 'negative' terminal to - so I found a bit of angle iron with a bright end on it and clamped to that. With the bright end near the rusty stuff on the ground, I used that to strike an arc to tck-weld the angle iron to the ground - purely to provide something to clamp the negative to ! To top off my difficulties, I was welding thin metal to thick metal. The result is far from pretty but at least functional !

      1. The Radio Weyr

        Outstanding. Carry on...

    36. pmailkeey

      It must be nice to have a well-equipped workshop. The best tool there that I haven't got is SPACE ! LOL

    39. Carlos Codorniz

      Love ur videos sir u do amazing work i have seen all ur videos This is almost a lost art. Nowadays everyone is going cnc or computer cuts u sir actually use a micrometer 💯💯

      1. pmailkeey

        Similarly but more importantly than the micrometer - he's using the slide screw dials to position his cuts - no DRO malarkey on this one - and I think that is nice to see.

    41. Stéphane Clément

      Hi from Canada, were or if you have a link for your dial indicator holder

      Looks like it broke the ball on the handle as well..

    43. ShawnMrFixitlee

      great work Adam ! Great choice on the tooling .. I use those as well on cast and they work awesome .. ENJOYED !!

    44. Robert Palmore

      32:00 Is it possible the rough surface of the piece cause some angle difference in the cut?

    45. Peter McCuskey

      Nice work

    46. Scott Pittsinger

      mine has a 7'' riser plate to bring the head higher

    47. Scott Pittsinger

      i have one of these just sitting in my garage in clover s.c.

    48. Aquilux R.

      26:20 That was one hell of a high pitched screech.

    49. Rob Middleton

      Could the inaccuracy at 30:56 be caused by the the bandsaw clamping on the raw edge of the ductile iron, which is different from the true edge of the part?

      1. torfirith

        That's a good point. There could be a slight enough difference that it would alter the cut

    50. Tal Nadav

      Great work thank you for the step by step tutorial. Can't wait for the next video!

    51. evil brat

      Correct me if I am wrong - I thought cutting or any type work on ductile iron lubricant was not necessary yet you used coolant while cutting on band saw. ????

    52. Jason Prater

      Total noob here, but why would you use a 4 jaw chuck instead of the 6 jaw?

      1. Tallrs

        Jason, there's two good reasons 1- The 4 jaw was already in the lathe, 2 - There was too much stick-out with the 6 jaw chuck. If you noticed the 4 jaw had about 1-3/4 of holding surface on the jaws where the 6 jaw only about 3/4. With the stock being as long as it was you would run the risk of it being pulled out of the 6 jaw chuck.

      2. Cezary Akakios

        The 4 jaw chuck has jaws that move independently of each other, each can be tightened or loosened on its own. This makes it suitable for holding work pieces that are not truly round, like a rough casting. It's also used when you want to be able to precisely control where the center of the work will be turned (e.g. if you wanted to turn something on an offset.) The 6 jaw chuck is self-centering, and works like the chuck in a drill, where all the jaws move in and out together at the same time and by the same amount. This means they are only effective with perfectly round work pieces (or those that are hexagonal.) If the piece was out of round, one or more of the jaws would not make good contact and the piece could shift or fall out. This is why Adam was able to use the 6 jaw for holding the part on the machined round surface, but had to use the 4 jaw for the rough casting, as raw materials like that are not guaranteed to be dimensionally accurate. A potential source of confusion is that Adam tightened the 6 jaw chuck in multiple places. Self-centering chucks are designed with multiple pinions (usually 3) which all act on the same scroll. The scroll has a spiral ground into it that tightens all the jaws at once. They give you multiple pinions so that you have access to tighten it from any angle without having to rotate the chuck too much, and technically speaking this means it's only strictly necessary to tighten one of them. But it's good machinist practice to tighten all of them, which equalizes the tension on the scroll and leads to more accuracy and better work holding. But this is quite distinct from the case of the independent jaw chuck where each jaw moved on its own. In general, self-centering chucks excel at faster setup speed at the cost of some accuracy, and independent jaw chucks are preferred for accuracy and flexibility of holding irregular work pieces, at the cost of much longer setup time. But that's only a generalization, it's certainly possible to have a very high quality self-centering chuck that has been dialed in and adjusted to perfection and not suffer from any major loss in accuracy. Most self-centering chucks have 3 jaws, which tend to be less accurate. The 6 jaw version is meant to be more accurate while still having the advantage of swift setup time, but it costs more to manufacture.

      3. themightyparthos

        Less work and mental math is my guess.

    53. Sri Nithin

      Hi sir, I'm planning to start an insert machining plant. A hydraulic press 12ton 2 manual tool grinders A sintering furnace Is that all enough? I would like to hear suggestions from all.

    54. Warren Jones

      I am always surprised how round Dura-Bar rounds are from the casting machinery they use. I seem to remember that face groove tool from some other project a few years back.

    55. SopChoppyCopy


    56. Martin Ma

      I got a facefull of chips just by watching

    57. Robert Lonski

      Adam - Watching you work the Lathe is like watching an artist create paint -- you are truly a gifted craftsperson.

    58. Steve Barnes

      You can always judge how "cutting edge" an engineer by the cuts on his hands. ;-)

    59. Way's Coatings

      Good video damn that saw cuts clean! Keep up the good work!!

    60. wirenut003

      How come you do not use cutting fluid or cutting oil on the Lathe. Must be very harsh on the cutting blades and drill bits

      1. Sylderon Machine Works

        @wirenut003 Happy to help.

      2. Sylderon Machine Works

        @Silas Marner No need to be an arse.

      3. wirenut003

        @Sylderon Machine Works Thanks for a complete answer to my question unlike others .

      4. Sylderon Machine Works

        I'll just tell you instead of being an ass: Cast iron contains graphite that acts as something of a lubricant when machining. Also, you can see that machining it produces a fine powder as well as chips, and cutting fluid can cause that powder to get into the ways; it's really abrasive, so it's best to cut it dry. Good grey and ductile iron will machine pretty freely.

      5. Silas Marner

        I'll let you do a little research out there and answer your own question .. "ductile iron" "machining"

    61. Tom Oakhill

      Adam, thanks so much for demonstrating the different ways a part can be machined, and the different cuts that can be made with a lathe. This is wonderful.

    62. Mike Salvatore

      I almost finished my WT radial drill. Mine is missing the pre-NEMA frame motor

    63. Shannon Spronk

      I am started to wonder is Adam even has a shaper anymore.

      1. Phreadrick Hejrick

        Pretty difficult to cut a circular groove with a shaper... :) Use the right tool the job, and its mostly not been the shaper lately.

      2. Silas Marner

        Awwwwww! tha-hat's saaaa-had... that's not glaaaa-had!

    64. Andy Zulim

      The owner of the Walker - Turner drill press must of been sick when the part rolled off the table. The Walker - Turner and the very similar Delta are very versatile machines. With the sliding ram, tilting head, wide speed range and large production table with T slots calling these a drill press is a little misleading. This is a nice gesture for you to make this part Adom.

      1. Andy Zulim

        @Silas Marner I don't know what I would of done. For 35 years I have had a eye open for one of these. I think that I would of been beyond cusing and throwing things. The mental ward bill would of cost more than buying a properly restored one.

      2. Silas Marner

        I'd've cussed a blue streak and thrown s**t to be sure.

    65. rickseeman1

      Great video as usual. Can’t wait for part 2.

    66. Wc Phillips

      How do u unmagnatize ur bar ?

      1. Silas Marner

        Heat it up to the curie point, slowly cool, harden, quench, temper, blah blah. It's not trivial to UNmagetize anything but tape and a tape head.

    67. Perry Diehl

      You explain yourself very well I recently found your videos and they are very interested I’d love to learn Machining some day just for a hobby. I’ve been a lifelong metal worker I’ve never tried machining

    68. Steve Zickefoose

      Wow what a nice sawcut!

      Just looking at your left thumb there has to be a freshly painted room at your place and my guess is that it is a shade of blue.

      Is the cut in the face for the tee nuts not considered trepanning?

      1. Silas Marner

        Trepanning is a dance move like piolet 1, piolet 2.

      2. rickseeman1

        I would call it that. That’s why he used that special tool.

    73. alan bell

      measure at the very end of the piece. square the end and flip it around?

        Yeah sure, whatever you say!

    74. Jack Bui

      wow! beautiful cut. such skills @@

    75. Ken Tyler

      The material is probably 65-45-12, a ferritic ductile. The original piece was Gray iron and very brittle. The 65 ductile machines very well and won’t crack if it hits the floor. I used to work for a couple of foundries that manufactured continuous cast gray and ductile. As I watch the machining I am sure that the material is a class 40 gray iron. Gray iron is a good material but is fracture prone like the OEM part and will brake if it hits hard on concrete? Somethings wrong here.

      1. bcbloc02

        So if you buy iron from a supplier is there a way to identify what you got?

        Yes, for us mere mortals that cut would have been good enough, bwhahahahahahahaahah

    92. Jakob Rebeki

      Is it me or has anyone else noticed that there are a lot of machinist people like K Rucker, Double boost, Blondihacks as well as young Abom79 that have got smashed up and bruised black finger nails? Seems to be a prolific trade injury. Take care guys (and girls)....

      1. Mr Mike

        Lifting heavy blocks of metal all day is dangerous for your fingers... throw in some cutting fluid (slippery) and you've got busted up finger nails.

    93. Crossbow Hunter

      How do you hone a radius on the end of the cutter?

      1. Gragaloth

        put it on the stone perpendicular to the top surface of the cutter, start almost horizontal, make ur swipe and end almost vertical, riding the curve of the radius on the surface of the stone

    94. James Coulson

      On your drawing of the faceplate, you mention that the slots start at 40 degrees, is that 40 degree line through the middle of the tool that cuts the slots? Does that make sense?
