THE VERTICAL MILLER (2)

 MAKING ADJUSTMENTS

V. Ryan © 2003 - 2009

 

The vertical traverse hand wheel (handle) is turned in order to raise or lower the knee. This means that the machine vice is also raised or lowered towards or away from the cutting tool.

 

The machine head can be tilted to a variety of angles allowing chamfers to be machined. Normally this is done by slowly loosening a number of bolts and then tilting the machine head to the required angle. Some machines have a gauge on which angles can be read so that it can be set accurately.

   

 

 

 

The feed handle is turned by the machine operator. This moves the table and anything bolted to it (such as a vice) towards the cutting tool.
Usually, the ‘feed’ of the machine can be set to automatic so that there is no need to turn the handles manually.
