    Seatstay Coping Fixture Project

    My first big project on the new Lagun mill was a success! It's really amazing what you can do with a good mill and a DRO.
    Thanks to Don Ferris and Kristofer Henry for some of the design inspiration.

    The Lagun FTV2 is a 1989 model that came out of the Di-Acro factory. It's 2200lbs., 3HP, and 10x50" table. My first mill is a Clausing 8520 800lbs, .5HP, and 6x24" table.

    Lovely, youív definitely made tooling before. Lots of nice little details. I especially like the steel insert for the heel of the clamps. I presume itís nice and quick to set with the left/right thread and graduated markings. Is it dowelled into the T-slots?

    Or if it's a round dropout, I just do it by hand.
