I was hoping someone could give me some help with my Dore Westbury milling machine. I‘m not sure what the model number is though. (picture attached below)
I have absolutely no experience with milling machines so am finding things very confusing.
I need to be able to skim a fraction of material using a fly cutter.
As I mill across the material (winding away from me) the cut my side of the spindle is deeper than the cut the other side.
I have done a bit of research and I think the pitch of my machine is out?
I can see how you would adjust the yaw (which seems fine) but I cannot see how you could adjust the pitch?
Any help regarding this matter would be very much appreciated.
You need to put a dial indicator attached to a bar in the chuck to measure the relative height of the bed at a large radius. Measure the 4 points (x+,x-,y+,y-) to find how much it is out in each. To correct it you'll probably need to use shims. Search on google for 'tramming' a milling machine and you'll find lots of information about it.
