T-Slot M5

A T-slot is a element that allow fixing part to be machined on a mill or a lathe. It is very easy to build and is the perfect project for a beginner.

When I received my small Sherline milling machine, I decided to build some t-slots:

  • I wanted to test my milling machine
  • There was only a few t-slots
  • All t-slots delivered where in imperial units.

I measures the T-Slots delivered with my milling machine, designed a 3D metric model T-Slot M5 with Solidworks, ans machined the part. The blueprint in included below. Feel free to ask questions.
