If I'm understanding correctly, you use the lathes carriage for all your horizontal travel and your mill knee for vertical travel and you're mounting your end mills in the lathes collet chuck, is that correct? Any chance of you sharing a picture of your setup?

Very impressive. Thanks for sharing the pics.
Looks like you've got a LOT of tooling. Is it all your's or do you borrow cutters from the job? One of my handicaps is that I'm not working in the business. When I encounter a new job that requires a specialized cutter, I often have to bite the bullet and buy it. By now I've accumulated so many cutters that I needed to do one specific job, but have never used again, that I have trouble storing them, and I'm not set up to grind form tools either.

I have all my own tooling, but I buy a lot of used or good deal items .If I break a cutter it will become something else .I make mini boring bars,fly cutters ,radius endmills .I use a lot of tool steel and old carbide endmills to make whatever I need.

IRONWORKER, I know you have heard it a million times, but I would love to have one of your receivers. You could take special orders? We can dream.
