Feast your eyes on the exploded diagram of the Logan cross slide (LA-747) and the pivoting part of the compound slide (LA-746). Of particular interest to our proceedings today is the pin (LA-744). There are two, one each side.
While I have some time today, I'm gonna get some idea of what the pins need to look like. I gotta make two to replace the two I murdered trying to remove them.
The plug on the bottom of the pivoting part has a complementary angle for the plug to push against, effectively locking it into place. Logan calls part LA-746 the swivel.
|Part 19 - bottom view|
Angles on the ends, length and diameter of the old pins.
Length is 28/32" = 7/8" = 0.875"
|Caution! PARALLAX ERROR!!!!|
Diameter is 0.252" in a 5/16 - 18 tapped hole. Tap drill size is F or 0.257" leaving 0.005" clearance.
|Uh... no, I won't make it that big again|
After these are made, there will be a bit of fitting to make sure they work right. Then assembly to see what else I need to make to finish up the taper attachment. Hooooboy, this is getting exciting.
