Thanks Marty!

True story: When I started on my Belgian shop project, I had never seen a camelback drill press... much less know the name  Roll Eyes  I've learned more about tools, shops and heavy industrial operations from this site than I ever knew before.  I've worked with modern mills and manufacturing for years (lumber, plywood, footwear and apparel) - but never in the actual machining or super heavy side.  Of course after I made my drill press I find a couple gross of images on the web  Grin

But enough about me - show us the next progress steps!

Marty,
Great work so far. Keep it coming.


Paul,
Not that I was asked, but I would recommend buying  a mill before a lathe....but then I am biased as I suck on a lathe.  Grin

I used to own a DP like that, except it had gearing for the power feed and a back gear just like a lathe.  A beast for sure.

You mean like these Russ?;


There are 11 gears in the picture, the squares are one inch.......

Was real "fun" to figure out the math for the shaft spacing, then drill a jig for placement.

For one brief horrifying minute, I thought I was looking at the next phase of the Camelback, and thought I had entered an alternate universe...

I take it you made these gears by yourself???

Oh dear, that one gear should have eight teeth, not six. Justa kidding, yes please share the tale of the gears.

Actually the gears are too coarse but I wanted them to work so i had to compromise.
I figure only you guys would notice....
I contemplated making my own but in the long run I thought better of it.
The brass ones you see are about $5 each, you do the math. There are several more to go too!
The bevel gears were the hardest to find, I found some lovely brass ones at on $45 a piece! Shocked

Working my way through the gears.......
The auto feed is some fiddly stuff.

I keep thinking to myself "how the hell did Charlie (Brohmmer) do this in "O" scale!!!!

I have since moved the parts a little and decided on a smaller driven gear.
Turning down the cast one in this picture was sure a challenge......Oh well.



More soon.

That's coming with the framework on the back!

Needed to get some color, pigment, finishes on some of these parts.
Boy I love the AK Interactive dark steel!
Anyway here is what I have as of today.



Thanks for looking!
More soon.

I laid out as many of the dimensions for the framework as I could calculate/figure out.



Then I sprayed a piece of .120" black styrene white.
That way using my dial calipers set to the dimensions, black lines would show.



I also used a couple circle templates and a french curve.
Now to cut it out...... Huh
