Cutoff Tool Holder and Post for Rivett 918

May 15, 2017 § Leave a comment

I had the cutoff tool holder laying around in the shop.  Milled out a post for it.  Works great however but will make another out of larger stock to get cross slide as close to spindle as possible.  Rethinking tool holders on cross slide altogether but worked out well enough.

Plastic and I don’t get along.  Turns out the little plastic “clamps” break pretty easy.  Made some flat aluminum washers of sorts and brought them back to life.

May change how it sits on rails but I am pretty sure it will be below the rail surface.

More hooks to make but rack is all in place.  The rack is for service and inventory..not for display.  Boxes are lined up where the second level of bikes will hang.

Here you go Wayne.  I still think the brass one was cooler.  This concludes the obscure Campy parts (see previous post for Campy repair stand) day in the shop.
