There's nothing like the right tool for the job.And -usually- that's what I end up using.....nothing like the right tool for the job!
plans for a mic body in your near future?
I have a friend with a 3 in 1 combo lathe mill drill press... I'd be using that thing constantly, he hardly touches it. That bastard...
Will a machine of this type be able to do the type of fine threads found in e.g. AKG's C451/CK1 mics?
Very nice indeed!Will a machine of this type be able to do the type of fine threads found in e.g. AKG's C451/CK1 mics? (I never fully understood the dimensioning of lathe thread-making mechanism)Jakob E.
... they looked good and played awful.
Hello!I think this might be my first post in the machine shop! I have just treated myself to a mini-lathe - it was held up by the snow, but finally arrived yesterday, so thought I'd share....The lathe is a SIEG SC2 thing, from Axminster tools. These SIEG lathes are available under a few different names, but Axminster had a showroom not too far away, so I could actually go and see the different models in real life. The SC2 was a good match for the space available, and for the wallet too.
And then I replaced a broken connector on this B&O microphone, by cutting off the old on, and re-threading for an XLR output...
How about for the next project making that Neutrik thing from scratch?
