This is a real good idea.  I'll have to remember for the next time I need to make stuff with key ways.                Stewart

Woodworking tools were not meant for metal working  BUT - as long as you take it easy and let the machine do the work and don't force it, they will do a lot more than intended. Nice job there for sure.  Machine shop would have charged you a couple hundred to do that.

Give yourself a medal for bravery! I see a lot of places where I would have encountered disaster. Radial saws are not my friiends.

How did you lock the drill press at depth for milling?

The drill press has a height adjustment lock that does both upper & lower limiting.

you can do a lot of things with a drill press. A friend of mine uses his to make hubs for garden carts. I have one fairly big press with a 6" quill stroke. It also will lay down like a lathe.

 

I have see attachments in an old Sears catalog for doing metal work with there radial arm saw. Using a cutoff wheel instead of a blade, you should be able to do several lite duty projects.

This was a good project to follow. Very clever use of what you have. Being a carpenter & recently getting into rebuilding tractors this definitely got my interest. I've done a few things that weren't meant to do with woodworking tools but like mentioned extreme caution & letting the tool do the work things c work out well. Most of the cutoff wheels I use have a very high rpm rating much more than the table saw or radial arm saw. Good job & saved yourself some pocket money.

Came across this video today & thought the first 13 minutes seemed to go well with the thread.
