Index / Degree Wheel Atlas lathe
Okay, I’m at it again and need to be able to quickly drill holes in a array. All without having to use my Cnc machine or printer. I was thinking I would build a indexing wheel and use my lathe. While the complete installation is not done. The wheel / plate is. I may polish it up later. But for now. Here is the plate. Aluminum 0.250 x 10″ 0.d. Center hole is 1″
Drawn up and coded in Cad / CamBam) .
I’ve been looking for a nice index wheel for my wood lathe. Do you sell the wheel shown for the Atlas Lathe?
Scott, Sorry no I dont. this wheel was a one off for my personal use. Thanks for the compliments.
Why do you have the spokes offset? Just for cosmetic reasons?
Steve, Purely cosmetic.
Also since you drew it up in cad, any chance you could send me the software file, so I could take a piece of plate somewhere locally and have it either machined or made up on a water jet? Thanks
I’m glad to send you the file. I’ll have to locate it first. my only condition is you send me a few pics of your completed version!
