VERTICAL MILLING SLIDE: A PERSONAL OPINION. The same VMS is sold for Seig C3 "7x12 mini-lathes" and I see that Little Machine Shop in California sells an adaptor plate which lies on top of the cross-slide and is bolted to the swivel disc, with tapped holes so the VMS can be attached to the plate further towards the back of the lathe.

I have a Axmister (SEIG) SC4 lathe with the vertical mill accessory. I’d like to fit an x - axis DRO to the lathe. I have a Machine DRO set-up.

To fit my lathe I had to precisely drill and tap three 10mm holes into the top of the cross slide, to bolt the vertical slide down - see below. The two smaller holes on the left mount the tool post, the other three are for the mill slide.

Sep 02, 2018 · I keep coming across projects that need a small amount of milling. I have read a lot of peoples comments on how they are junk. For someone without a drill press or any other means of milling I am starting to consider adding a 4"x5" vertical mill table to my lathe.
