New toys

While getting the workshop set up, I traded some of the Schaublin kit for other machines. I picked up an old Hauser mill, model 333, serial number 1, whose previous life was in a factory making timers. Wallace and Gromit would be proud: it’s a wonder of cams and levers.


My plan is to use it for pinion cutting, perhaps even wheel cutting if I can sort out a sensible way to index the spindle in which the work is held. My current thought is to go electronic, either with a shaft encoder or a stepper motor. Sometime.
