Very pretty, but there's something odd about wanting to put an elephant's tooth that's at least four millenia old in your mouth :roll:

Afternoon all.

I have been playing with a technique in CAMBAM called Island Pocketing, the ability to leave raised "islands" on a machined surface. For simplicity I modelled a Lego brick, nice regular surfaces and it makes a nice desk ornament for the kids when finished.

I also wanted to test out some new long series end mills from McJing Tooling, the one in the video is a 6mm four flute cutter that gives me a 40mm cut and still allows sufficient clearance on the Z axis.

Hope you enjoy.

No, these are NPT, you want BSP.

I recommend this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Sealey-Tools-Ta ... 25696f253e

Damn damn damn :( I accidentally hit the buy bottom and I had to pay it :( 35 euro wasted.
Edit: I bought the sc3 lathe and sx2 mill. I still have 200 euro left and I'd like to have some decent blade and mill bits (hard enough to cut/mill stainless steel, so can't be HSS), can you show me some examples? Also I think I need a good solid vice for the mill as well...

Don't worry, maybe you will need to make parts for Americans ;)

Look for carbide tools, or tools with carbide inserts.

For example: http://www.ebay.com/itm/CARBIDE-End-Mil ... 2a2b754780

http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-8-5-PC-INDEXA ... 1c30904f17

A mill vice is almost obligatory, and a rotary table is incredibly useful - if you have that for the mill, you almost don't need a lathe!

I would get these for general use: Carbide Tipped 11pc Lathe Tool Set - 10x10mm

Do you have a tool holder already? ,ake sure you get the right size.

Maybe later invest in these: http://www.arceurotrade.co.uk/Catalogue ... ning-Tools

As to the vices, the first one would be nice especially since your mill column is fixed, or you could just get a tilting vice and rotating vice for now.

I will give you some advice though, if you're certain you're going to be machining for a while, better pull your finger out and buy the good stuff immediately instead of slowly upgrading.

If you get good at it, the tools will pay for themselves in a short time ;)

how about the 100mm Tilting Radial Milling Vice?
if you're certain you're going to be machining for a while
pretty sure

not sure, my biggest problem is still to come, I can't find a place to buy materials for machining :(

That should serve you pretty well, but a rotary table is still a good idea.

Surely you can find a metal supplier, you might also want to have a look around scrapyards too.
