I am very happy with this lathe, so by way of taking more and more practice, I decided to make a back plate bancada Cox .020 Tee Dee, here are some pictures, I hope you like it!

Your ingenuity and resourcefulness are inspiring, Mauricio.  Your ability to make true friends even more so. You are a wonderfully blessed man and I'd be willing to bet that those close to you are even more blessed. I know we are!  Thanks for sharing!

Thank friend you for leaving me your comment !! It is possible that one day I have a project in mind like that, but first I must learn to drive the wheel, know its parts, sharpen the tools very well, know their sound, wrong many times and one day having overcome all that ... then it is possible that I cheered up !! Very Happy Beer Cheers sunny

Great work again my friend , Just asking do you think you should bee using some kind of oil or solvent to help keep work cool when cutting ?? Would help keep tools sharp i would think and rough cuts to a minimum . Huh... Small Cox Logo This Site Rocks!

Nice work on the backplate! Be careful or you'll find machining more interesting than flying. And definitely don't look at http://www.modelenginenews.org/ , http://www.modelenginemaker.com/ , or www.homemodelenginemachinist.com .

Cutting aluminum dry is no problem, though coolant helps when drilling. Coolant on small lathes is a mess. It will help surface finish, but much of that is dependent on cutting edge quality. Tool life for hobby use is negligible in soft metals. Kerosene or odorless lamp oil are great for aluminum.

Thank you, friend Eric! ... I do believe that I must educate myself and learn a lot to get the most out of each job and, above all, so that each accessory remains in the best possible way. That in addition to the care and maintenance of tools and the own lathe. Just "gkamysz" has just written and placed very interesting links.
A hug Friend!

Hello "gkamysz"! ... I agree with you, it is very tempting to work with the lathe and create pieces, it's nice to take the challenge and try to make it concrete, I feel very well when something in my head I can achieve it!
Thanks for the advice, I will take it! ... also thanks for the links ... I will try to make time to enjoy all this material and inform me !.
A big hug for you.
