Spindles a Resource book for Amateur Engineerby Harprit Sandhu
Synopses & Reviews
If you do not own a milling machine, and even if you do, what you can do in your shop is greatly enhanced if you own a spindle or two with your lathe. Spindles come in many shapes and sizes, ranging from 0.75 in. (19.05mm) to 2.250 in. (57.15 mm) in diameter, 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 but rather on spindles that are easy to make and have as few parts as possible. all the spindles except on use sealed ball bearings, the exception uses tapered roller bearings and thus need 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 all chucks, plates, collets, and closers designed for the lathe to be used with the spindle. however, it can be modified for other lathe nose standards.
