One of the projects that I’ve been planning for a long time is a more flexible mitering setup where I’m utilizing one of the lathes instead of the mill. I already have a dedicated main tube mitering system from Anvil on my Tos milling machine, but there are parts that are easier to miter with a simple setup like the one I just made. My Blomqvist (South Bend 9-inch clone) lathe came with a lot of accessories, and the milling table was one of those hard to find things that came with it. With some simple machining on the big lathe and the mill I ended up with this tube clamp. It will allow me to miter stem tubes as well as strut tubes for segmented forks. Hopefully I’ll start on at least one of the latter this week.
