How can we size a milling machine to get its’ travel size?
Like how we size a lathe, we can use the same way to get the travel size manually on our milling or drilling machines.
Let’s take the x-axis on milling machines as an example.
- First, position your table towards the end, until it ‘bumps up’.
- Do a mark on the table, and on the machine panel.
- Reposition the table all the way to the other end;
- Measure the distance between the two marks
Now you know how to get its’ travel on the milling or drilling machines.
