Above, Maching the dovetails of the MILLING ATTACHMENT (MLA-5)
"V" way base using the TRANSFER BLOCK (U-12). In this operation the depth of the cut was controlled by removing shims that had been placed between the workpiece and a 1-2-3 block mounted on the TRANSFER BLOCK. The dovetails were made paralled by traversing the first side machined with a test indicator before making the final cut. This was a typical milling machine operation performed on the lathe.
