Dave Stephens Posted January 23, 2015 Share Posted January 23, 2015 All: Is anyone aware of an accessory for the KMG that would allow for Z axis (up and down) adjustments to the work rest? At the bottom of this post are some shots of how I currently do it, using a MAP arm attachment and a laboratory scissor platform. The problem is that the scissor jack is not rigid enough. While it does pretty well locking in the Z axis, it has about .125" of play in the table itself. While sliding a sword blade back and forth on it to create fullers, it can cause you to fall out of "the groove." Any suggestions on something with more rigidity and precision would be appreciated! Thanks Dave PS: Many thanks to Craig Hashimoto for generously gifting me this scissor jack when I was originally struggling for a solution. -----------------------------------------------"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly." -- Theodore Roosevelthttp://stephensforge.com Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
