DVD: Build a Milling Machine This DVD, by Jose Rodriguez, provides complete instructions for building a milling machine. Jose says: "In this nearly 12 hour long video marathon, you will witness the seemingly impossible! Observe the author as he builds a fully operating and capable 80 pound variable speed milling machine with existing TAIG Micro lathe components and readily available stock aluminum material. A commercial heavy duty X & Y milling table is utilized to complete the project. This is definitively not a "TOY" but a complete milling center that will outperform just about anything in its class. For a total expenditure of less than $300. You too could have a tool that will perform better than milling machines costing more than twice as much. This video will take you through every step from its initial conception and planning to and beyond its very successful conclusion in painstaking detail so that you too will be able to easily duplicate this achievement! As an extra bonus, you will be treated to a fully narrative and visual step by step presentation on the building of a 60:1 geared dividing head that with the addition of a simple shop made indexing accessory will allow it to divide anything into as many as 21,600 equal divisions and for that matter, any other number divisible into that. You will also learn how to easily cut perfectly fitting dovetailed sliding joints with the simplest of equipment. These two items alone would be worth the price of this video set. See how to produce a professional quality engraved dial with nothing more than a small lathe ( TAIG ). You will see each component being worked, fitted and assembled as the unit is magically transformed more and more into a "REAL" milling machine. The final two hours or so will be devoted to a full battery of milling operations performed on real components that make up part of the geared dividing head including other milling goodies. During the filming of the final milling tests, cuts were routinely taken on 6061-T6 alloy to depths of over 90 thou with a common imported 1/4" diameter four flute end mill. We do not recommend that you routinely cut to those depths but it sure is nice to be able to so when needed. This a definite "MUST" for anyone who has grown tired of using alternative milling methods but either is not ready to invest the big bucks for a commercially available bench top milling machine or simply not satisfied with what’s presently available out there.

DVD: Building a Spindle Gauge for the Mini Lathe This video, by Jose Rodriguez, provides a 2 hour study on how to build a spindle gauge to check the size of adapters and other accessories you make to fit the spindle of your lathe. Jose says: "Make all the spindle accessories you will need for your lathe with a simple, easy to make spindle gauge. This tape will take you through a full two hour, detailed demonstration on how to make a precision spindle gauge directly on your 7 x 10 that you can then use to machine matching spindle tooling not presently available for this lathe. All this without having to remove the chuck! You will need to remove it only once in the beginning to take two initial micrometer measurements for the diameter and thickness of the mounting back plate / flange. The author has adapted a four jaw chuck for it, has made a slotted face plate, a driving catch plate and dog clamp and is presently working on a collet chuck with frontal collet closer that will directly mount to the spindle. A must have for those wishing they could have more spindle tooling than just the three jaw chuck the lathe comes equipped with!"

DVD: Make a Miniature Boring Head This DVD, by Jose Rodriguez, provides complete instructions for making a miniature boring head. The DVD has a menu that makes it easy to return to parts of the video that you want to see again. Jose says: "Watch the author as he builds a fully operational and capable boring head. In this almost two hour video you will learn in full detail how to make a boring head with micrometer adjustment feature with very little material and equipment. In fact, although the author uses his home made milling machine to build it, it could be easily built using the TAIG lathe plus milling attachment. You will see the dovetailed components being built from layout to finish. The unit takes 1/4" shank shop made boring bars which you will see as well, although commercial 3/8" bring bars could be substituted instead. The idea here was to make a miniature version of a commercially available boring head complete will all the normal features found on them, but only about 1/2 the overall size. Small machines such as the Taig Micro mill and Sherline milling machines will vibrate when a full size boring head is installed with the head offset even a small amount. This unit is small, compact, but extremely strong and stiff. This will be evident at the end of the video during the actual test, boring out of an existing bore on a work piece. The head itself is adjustable in thousands of an inch with its graduated screw and its male dovetail is kept snug or fully locked during cutting by three gib screws. This unit has a real brass gib rather than the usual practice of slitting the female dovetail to create a pseudo gib. All in all, for the cost of a pack of cigarettes you make a great addition to your tool shelf that will perform for you for a lifetime."

DVD: Making Gears the Easy Way This DVD, by Jose Rodriguez, provides a four hour introduction to making gears. The DVD has a menu that makes it easy to return to parts of the video that you want to see again. Jose says: "Have you forgone the pleasure of building a small geared engine simply because the thought of having to cut your own gears brings a shiver down your metalworking spine? Even if can muster up the nerve, you realize that so called involute gear cutters cost an arm and a leg. Then you need a set of eight cutters to enable you to cut the entire range of teeth for 12 to Rack. The cost in cutters alone can reach well over $200 before you even begin thinking about arbors to hold them. It's no wonder many of us will simply go to the nearest gear vendor and put down $50 -$60 for a pair of brass spur gears. In this video you will learn the secrets of the HOB. You will not only learn how to use a hob, but you will also learn how to build one from scratch right on your small to medium size lathe and small milling machine. For a total cost of about $3 in materials you can make a hob that will not only enable you to EASILY make any number tooth spur gear as well as even a worm and worm gear. You will be amazed at how simple gear making can be! You can make any diametral pitch hob by simply following the easy Diametral Pitch chart that is included as part of the video. The video shows a 1/10 pitch spiral and straight hob being made and then used to make gears of various diameters. You will not need to compute anything. All basic diameters for gear blanks for gears of any numbers of teeth will also be included in the package. If you rather use a calculator to figure out diameters, easy formulas for that are also included. Once you have used a HOB to cut a gear you will wonder why you would use anything else!"

DVD: Milling on the Drill Press This video, by Jose Rodriguez, provides a four hour introduction to milling on a drill press. Jose says: "Are you tired of avoiding machine projects simply because you do not own or have access to a milling machine? Learn some of the secrets to successful milling techniques utilizing your existing lathe as well as a drill press. I know what you must be thinking. This guy must be crazy! Milling on a drill press? I, as well as none other than Rudy Kouhoupt, have been doing just that very thing for years now with entirely good results in finish as well as dimensional accuracy. You will also see the Taig Micro Lathe being put trough its paces milling a workpiece held on the cross slide as well as with the vertical milling accessory. See the Taig with the externally mounted modified micro drill press to convert it into a miniature 3 in 1 machining center. See the 7 x 10 mini lathe in conjunction with the Taig Vertical Milling accessory performing milling cuts with hardly an effort. We finish the presentation with the 8" modified drill press performing milling on a rough block of stock held on a great little shop made milling vice.

DVD: Toolmaking & Restoration Mini Machines 101 General Machinist Series Toolmaking & Restoration by SwarfRat Enterprises, LLC. This video delves into the art of restoring damaged parts, as well as how to design and fabricate special tools for our projects, whatever they may be. Have you ever had a part with the threads so damaged that you can't put a die over them to clean them up? This video demonstrates with a 40-year-old oil pump shaft from a vintage Italian Aermacchi engine, where the shaft was so mushroomed on the end as to be worthless. Learn the technique to synchronize the lathe to the existing threads, enabling you to re-cut the damaged threads and save the part. It shows you how to measure and lay out a complex bolt pattern from the same engine manually, and tricks for doing it with a CAD program. Then the video shows how to use the layout to make a universal press and separator tool, as well as flywheel and armature pullers; tools that are no longer available, yet necessary to disassemble the motor. Along the way, it discusses material and design considerations for tooling in general. For those of you who haven't yet cut threads with your mini lathe, this is a great introduction to the process.
