Here are some cool beginner and intermediate project ideas to make on a mill and lathe. As I find and build more things I will update this page.
Stepped Paper Weight:
This was done by turning each 1/4″ on the top down to a uniformly smaller dimeter and every 1/8″ on the bottom down by 1/2 the diameter of the 1/4″ part.
This was done by turning the inside down while leaving a disk in the center that was then cut free using a hook-tool.
Small desk lamp. It consists of a flat base plate of aluminum. I drilled and taped a hole in the base for the stem which was threaded and turned on a lathe. I then fly cut the base for a nice finish. There is a hole that is threaded in the top of the stem for a lamp socket to screw into.Other • RSS 2.0 feed • leave a response or trackback
