Does that mean you can make these ?

Their ahead anti-aircraft system is pretty interesting though. Superfast muzzle mounted chronograph and timed rounds filled with tungsten pellets.

Mmm so swappable lathe and milling machine... How much did that come to ?

This is way too tempting, talk about machine tools is everywhere. I guess its a good thing I don't have any money (however my time as a student is nearly over).

Pretty much whatever shape you'd like ;-)
I did those a long while ago:

JSR gave you a figure. $2500 with taxes and shipping.
You could go lower, $2000 seem to me a bare minimum to have a machine equipped enough to do interesting stuff.

But a Sherline equipment is for miniature work; And I'm pretty sure JSR will do wonders with it :-D

A MiniBoy is already big for its envelope.

IMO Sherline is the best of the best for miniatures and precision (no no, I don't work there :-D Just a happy customer).
But to machine bigger stuff, in steel, or with longer/larger sizes, you need to go looking for those Chinese mini-lathe if you are on a budget. Not the same goal really.

I failed to refresh the page it seems :oops:

I was referring to the name of the ammunition ;) Frangible Armor Piercing

Wow you machined the casing... is the inside just drilled or did you bore to a larger diameter than the neck ?

Oops.... silly me I didn't pay attention :-D
That's the problem trying to work and have fun at the same time :?

The casing is just drilled... they were intended as static small scale models.

I'm going to guess the rim of the shall presses/threads/slips in, and the shell was hollowed out from behind...

Assuming he did it properly and doesn't have some kind of super reamer ;)

Wrong assumption :-D He did it the easy way ;-)
But what you describe would be the correct way to do it, with an exact inside replica in mind, yes.

You can still work in small scale on a large lathe, as long as it's a good one. Here's a little scale cannon I made, completely functional and fairly accurate to scale, on a 300x1000 lathe. (It's been fired, which is what caused the superficial surface rusting. A few minutes polishing would fix it up)

Image

LeMaudit, any ideas on little things to make? I can make basically anything, but I can never think of what to make...you seem to do well in this department :lol: any ideas? Old war stuff, guns, cannons, shells, whatever. I like making little stuff too, but I can never decide what to make :roll:

inonickname, try to make a WWII pulse jet bomb. Obviously without the jet and explosive part, but it would make some fun ammo.

Good idea.

That would make a good project, mainly lathe turned without too much manual work of drilling, cutting, filing etc.

Why without the jet and explosive part? :lol: I can easily arrange both :wink:

Well for the sake of the forum, lets just say no explosives or jet. Post it on youtube and send me a link to the video if you add the rocket and explosives.

Plenty! :-D

But related to the forum interest, I guess a miniature pneumatic/hybrid is always welcomed, right?

I would love to see a miniature gatling in brass or a rapid fire mini that looks like a replica of a real gun, airsoft or with smaller ammo....

And if you don't make it... hmmmm... I may be tempted... I have a minicopter to destroy you know ;-)

Indeed, I'm a big fan - a true modern shrapnel shell.

That is the single biggest reason I went for the Sherline - I want to work small and fine, and do so reliably.

Where is your self control, JSR? :D


It broke, I have to machine a new one ;)

I can make basically anything, but I can never think of what to make...


Are you serious? Even since I contemplated getting a lathe/mill the ideas haven't stopped flowing!

The Argus pulse get isn't too complex, you might as well go ahead and make it work ;)

Give it a couple of months ;) I'm being terribly optimistic, aren't I?

Great minds must think alike jsr, a couple weeks ago I traded my south bend for a sherline lathe/mill and a couple accessories because I'm going to be moving into a small apartment or dorm for university. It has almost everything thing I want but they guy I traded with let me hang onto enough south bend accessories so I can sell them to buy the three jaw chuck and rotary table that I want. Here's my setup
Image

I think youLl be amazed with what this little guy can do, even though it's far less rigid than my old south bend everything is so precise and I actually get better finishes. Other than making a couple things like head and tailstock adapters for Jacobs chucks (awesome project btw) this is the first thing I made on my setup and I couldn't be happier. It cuts aluminum beautifully and didn't seem to mind the steel for the fly wheel.
