Miniature Modifications

City_DudeOctober 22, 2004

I just added this power feed and digital readout to my miniature mill. Total cost was about $25 for the additions. Next project out of this machine will be an adjustable aperture sight for my Winchester 94.

DRO is an 8" digital caliper, one jaw clamped to the table and one the saddle. Table travel is 8" also so it works out. Only have done the X axis so far. I don't plan anything for the Y but probably will add a dial indicator for the Z. Caliper was about $25 on sale at Harbor Freight.
