    I will be buying a hobby sized machine, but would it be possible to make this part on such a machine.

    Denford triacs
    Or
    Emco 55 size, if I can't find 1 then would have to be syil 4X plus.





    Now the size from top to bottom are

    10mm dia 8mm across flats

    10mm dia x 30mm long Stepped to 12mm x 18 long Stepped 20.5 x3 long.
    Then the larger dia of 57mm x 23.5

    Turn it round I then have 54mm bore 21 deep, this is a Ti clutch bell for an Rc car.

    I made the 1 above on a manual lathe, I understand a lathe would be best for making this but would this be pos on CNC miller.

    Thanks

    No reason why not, but you'd be getting into jigs and having to think seriously about some work-holding issues.

    If I only had one to make (in an emergency) then I'd give it a go. It does seem like the long-winded way to go about it - but that could as well be my lack of knowledge/experience...

    From titanium, I think you'd be asking for trouble. If the part was smaller and a sensible material then you could consider using the mill as a lathe, like I did here:



    ... but it seems a bit OTT just to avoid a lathe?

    Holding should be no problem, bored 3 jaw chuck machine the shaft end, turn over machine the rest. But may flex and want to shove it over or pull it out.
    Think I'm asking to much TBH just hoped somebody has done something simlar with success.

    I made just 1 of these on the lathe for personal use, only 1 off in the world made from Ti, also made a few of these from Ti again nobody has Ti versions.



    1 off the above has been made from alloy, but sold the lathe and now people are wanting Ti versions.

    The carriers above look like this when done.

    Cheers
    But now abit stuck on what route to take, if access was not an issue i would simply buy a cnc lathe and miller. But limited to just 790mm down the side of my house, so needs a small lathe and miller.

    Just thought i would buy a lathe, machine what i wanted (needed) then sell on, not nothing people would want them when complete.
