  • The Mini-Mill Head Drop Problem | MachinistBlog

    A problem with the Sieg X2 mini-mill [HF 44991, Grizzly G8689, Micro-Mark & others] is that the head can suddenly drop down while you’re milling. Everything will seem fine until the head suddenly drops a bit, which causes the end mill to try to cut too much metal at once, causing the table to start shaking as much as the play in the gibs allows.

  • Fitting Digital readouts (DRO's) to Clarke CMD10 mini mill

    Hi All , I'm looking to fit DRO's to my Clarke CMD 10 Mini mill soon to make machining easier. I believe this machine is almost identical to the siek x1 mill ? Measuring the travel of the table , the 'left to right' axis travels approx 12"" and the front to back axis travels approx 6". Just wondered where to buy and if anyone has any pics or advise regarding how and where to fit them. Any help

  • What are the most cost-effective modifications to a Grizz

    31.10.2012· My Micro-Mark mini mill came with a draw bar that engaged about 1/4" of threads on the drill spindle, and only about 3 threads on the collet spindle. After using it for about a week, the bottom most threads on the draw bar broke loose. Fortunately this happened when I was installing the spindle, and not under power.

    Few years later I got Mini Mill from Harbor Freight a variation of Sieg X2 mill. These two machines are very good when tuned well. I was able to achieve the precision of 0.001inch what is enough for my needs. When the mill arrived to my shop it was mostly assembled but I decides to take it apart, clean, lubricate and adjust the way I wanted. It paid off with smooth run and almost no lash. At

    Completed CNC Mini Mill . After using my first CNC mill for a while, I eventually became somewhat unhappy with its limitations.

This meant that I could not use it for "roughing". For small parts, this was fine, but for large work pieces, it

    The DRO has further simplified drilling to depth. Made a plinth to replace the compound for most things other than threading and tapers. This did not reduce chatter as I hoped so I don't use it much. Eventually I figured out that retracting the compound so the tool point is over the cross slide (not cantilevered out to the headstock side) helps reduce chatter and the plinth I made doesn't
