Finally bolt on the plastic guard, ‘C’ ensuring the metal block (arrowed) is between the head and the guard, tightening the two securing screws using the hex key provided, (with the lathe).

Finally, plug the Power Cable into the socket on the rear of the Lathe Headstock.

8

OPERATION.

Fig. 4

I n order to carry out milling or drilling operations, it will be necessary to provide some means of securing the workpiece.

A quick action vise is available as an accessory from your Clarke dealer. The vise should be secured to the Cross Slide, using the two Tee bolts with nuts and washers provided with the vise, as shown in Fig. 4.

Similarly, a means of holding and securing a Mill or Drill bit is required.

A Collet set and a Mill Chuck set are available for this purpose, from your Clarke dealer.

A set of End Mills is also available with sizes ranging from 3 -10mm.

Please refer to the ‘Accessories’ section for an explanation as to how to mount and use these tools.

With the workpiece secured to the lathes’ Cross Slide (in a vise or otherwise), use the Cross Slide and Saddle feed handles of the lathe to position it beneath the Mill or Drill.

The Mill Head complete is raised or lowered using the handwheel ‘A’, Fig 5.

Fig. 5

A

B

C

The maximum spindle travel using the raising and lowering lever is 30mm.

Milling with Accuracy

Milling, with accuracy, to a specific depth, may be achieved using the handwheel

‘B’ in conjunction with the button ‘C’.

1.

Push IN and hold button ‘C’ whilst lowering the Spindle, using the Spindle

Lowering Lever, until the button moves inwards, thereby locking the spindle to the mechanism controlled by handwheel ‘B’.

9

2.

Lower the Head complete, using Handwheel ‘A’, until the Mill is a few millimetres from the workpiece.

3.

Turn the handwheel ‘B’ clockwise until the Mill just comes into contact with the workpiece, then very carefully zero the scale by holding the handwheel steady and turning the scale independently so that the ‘0’ lines up with the mark provided on the head.

The machine is now set and prepared for accurate Milling to a specific depth.

Switch ON the Mill (refer to the ‘Starting’ procedure in the Lathe manual).

Turn the handwheel ‘B’ clockwise, observing the scale.....one graduation is equivalent to 1mm in depth.

It is important to set the spindle speed correctly, according to the job in hand. A knowledge of Cutting Speeds is therefore necessary.

It is not intended for this booklet to be a tutorial on Milling and Drilling procedures It is strongly recommended therefore that you consult a suitable reference book on the subject. Nevertheless, a brief summary is given below as a basis on which to begin.

Accurate Drilling

Drilling accurately to a predetermined depth is possible using the Spindle Lowering lever. A scale shown in Fig.6 is provided, one division of which is equivalent to 1mm in depth.

Fig. 6

Bring the drill so that it is just in contact with the workpiece using the HEAD Lowering handle. Slacken the screw securing the scale and turn it the required number of divisions, corresponding to the depth of desired cut, and secure in this position. i.e

if the drilling depth is 15mm, the 15th division mark should be opposite the zero mark on the body.

The Spindle lowering lever may now be turned to the required depth for repetitive drilling if desired.

10

MAINTENANCE

F or maximum performance, it is essential that the Drill Press is properly maintained. Always inspect before use. Any damage should be repaired, and maladjustments rectified.

If you are unable to rectify any faults, please contact your local dealer or Clarke

International Service Division on 020 8556 4443 for assistance.

Monthly

(When in regular use)

Check tightness of mounting bolts, and, head and column securing set screws.

If the mains lead is worn or cut, or damaged in any way, it should be replaced immediately.

Lubrication

All bearings are packed with grease at the factory and require no further lubrication.

Lubricate the Quill Shaft assembly with light oil, weekly.

After use

Remove all swarf from the machine and thoroughly clean all surfaces.

Components should be dry, with machined surfaces lightly oiled.

Always remove Mill/Drill bits, and store in a safe place.

CUTTING SPEEDS

In order to preserve the cutting tool, avoid damaging the workpiece and to produce a good finish, it is important to ensure the correct Cutting Speeds are used. Cutting Speed is the rate at which the cutting tool passes over the work, and is given in Feet Per Minute.

Factors which determine the best speed to use in any operation are:

• Kind of material being worked, and its hardness value

• Quality of cut desired

• Type and size of Drill/Mill

• Depth of Cut

• Rate of Feed

As a general guide, the Mill/Drill speed for a given bit size is according to the table below, using a light to moderate Feed rate. DO NOT force the tool.

Generally, the smaller the Mill/Drill the greater the required RPM. In soft material, the speed should be higher than for hard metals.

IF you are not familiar with materials and cutting speeds, it is strongly recommended that you consult a qualified person or attend a suitable course on the subject.
