I still need to tap the 1/4.20 threads counter sink the screw for the indicators..... run it through the championing machine, then for the final back to the mill drill for dressing it up after all that then ill press fit the center shaft.

But no time to work on it today I have to go to work and sometimes it takes me out and away from the shop mobile call to fix a distressed dodge ram 3500 and then work on his IH tractor while I'm there...

Bad part is I don't have much Getty up and Go today.... No energy but not much choice in the matter so gotz ta go..

I used to use a brake rotor but the grooves in it from the worn out pads made it pretty finicky. I copied Kieth's edge tool in about 30 minutes and love it.
I have several loose indicators that I can use including one .0001 precision now if I only had two of them I could dial it in closer than Rons paint

For certain it will I was just rattling chains there is no way you can use a used rotor for tramming a mill.

Well you had me wondering and trying to figure out how it would work
cause hindsight tells me most any used rotor is going to be either warped or slightly warped if not chewed up by the pads with groves......

Ok I had some anxiety issues today had planned on just relaxing all day but just couldn't sit still so i got up and piddled a little bit with the Spindle Squares

One, I will have to start from scratch because i made some bad mistakes..

I made a few mistakes on this one as well And might just need to start over on this one also.... Although it will only just affects the way it looks, And not the wait it will work....

So please don't laugh too hard...... I Think I might of been able to do a better job on my drill press. I'm not fond of this Mill drill at all cant wait to get at least one of the bigger mills in and up an running....

The only way I'm going to learn to do some of this stuff is by making mistakes.... and I sure made a few tonight

Any way here is The mess I made of it.... I still need to press the shaft in and tap the threads for the locking screws... and do some deburring and clean up so this one might not look to awful bad but not anywhere' near how it should look....

Just want to level my drill press tables because they are not correct on the Zeroing scale and noticed the holes when I drill through thick metal for bolts I end up having to enlarge the hole so that the bolt will line up.... So I figure if I tram my tables, I wont have to enlarge the holes any more an I"ll get a better fitment on what I'm working with at the time.... I believe it will make for less Stress on my bits an a bit less work for me in the end.

It's really the only reason for it, Is all...

If it is the surface finish you think is ugly , sand blast it and they will blend in .

I was thinking I have three options for that....
One being I could debur it by hand and then buff and polish on the wheel
Two I could Sand Blast it to blend it and have then sort of satin finish...
Three I could put it no the vibratory polisher but I am not sure of what the finish would come out to, because its one of those tools I've bought and got two of that I have not used yet since I bought them....

So those are my three choices of getting a finish on it... not that that is so important for it to function correctly
