This is a Wabeco 11400 / F1210 precision milling machine which arrived as a result of the May 2016 pledged drive for tools.

Wiki page is work-in-progress - will be completed when the mill is installed in the Hackspace workshop. The mill is currently located on a bench near the donations area and the fire doors. Currently wooden covers have been made to protect the bed, please ensure these are replaced after use.

Milling vice. Digital caliper-type XYZ readouts. Dial indicator and mounting.




Do not, ever, use an ordinary Jacobs-type drill chuck to hold milling tools. Collet chucks are a much more secure and safe way of holding such tools (a drill-chuck is fine when the operating force is along the axis, but will loosen dangerously if sideways forces are applied).
