17-May-2011 I needed to put a 7/8" hole in the top of the heavy duty control box I picked up for the conduit nut. The box was too tall to clamp in the vise and drill vertically, so we rig something up on the lathe. This is where the english-style lathes with their tee-slot compounds shine. Mine is American, so we resort to a dubious clamp using the tool-holder post and nut along with some machinist jacks to clamp the middle of the box to the cross-compound, which we have to swivel around backwards so we don't run out of travel on the compound. Oh - we also have to hold the taper-shank drill in the 3-jaw chuck because someone machined part of the taper off and now it won't hold in the spindle! It might sound awful, but I realized useing a chuck to hold large drills would allow me to use the #4 taper shank drills that won't fit in my #2 and #3 spindle.
