If you do not own a milling machine, what you can do is greatly enhanced in your workshop if you own a spindle or two with your lathe. Spindles come in many shapes and sizes, depending on the uses envisioned for them. This book describes the design, construction and use of a variety of spindles that will be of interest to the amateur engineer. Milling, grinding and drilling spindles are covered along with a unique light gear cutting frame for clockmakers. The emphasis is not on heavy duty industrial grade spindles, bur rather on spindles that are easy to make and have as few parts as possible. All the spindles except one used sealed ball bearings - the exception uses tapered roller bearings and thus needs to have seals installed to protect the bearings. The basic spindle described uses the same spindle nose as the Myford Super 7 lathe. This allows alll chucks, plates, collets and closers designed for the lathe to be used with this spindle. However, it can be modified for other lathe nose standards. Illustrated with black & white diagrams.
