Looks great. Looking forward to some new projects being made using it. :thumbsup:

Thanks Roger, still waiting for a milling vice to arrive so not been able to use it yet.

Also thanks for the pen suggestions in my other thread. Good idea & I'll have a think about making one (or trying to make one anyway!) :thumbs_up:

I managed to get some time in on the lathe this weekend. I fitted my new milling attachment - so I could cut/machine a groove/slot in the body of the latest pen I'm making. Obviously not the biggest job in world (4mm end mill cutting into brass) but the attachment seemed quite solid in use & the results are good :thumbs_up: 

I just need to make the rest of the parts & put the pen together :)

I had a new drill press vice arrive a few days ago. I wanted something a bit more robust than the pathetic cast alloy (monkey metal) 2.5" one that was supplied with the drill. This one is a 4" solid cast iron one with V grooves in the rear jaw for holding round stock either vertically or horizontally. Very nice piece of kit.

Compared to rubbish one...

Nicely V grooved rear jaw...

Top edges are also milled with a step to hold thin stock at the top of the jaws.

Looks good Roger - where did you buy it from?

The one for my pillar drill is pretty beaten up now so I could do with replacing it :thumbs_up:

This is the one I bought.
