Well, I got 34 of these spindles to weld-up, and put in the lathe and turn them back to spec. They have a tracking bearing that keeps the spindle from moving back and fourth, and the journal they ride in has gotten an 1/8 inch wider over about fifteen years of 24/7 use (this is at work obviously) To make my job easier I made a couple of pipe holders. Then, I was trying to figure out how to make a full pass without stopping. I was checking the "run out" on another part, and just looked at my dial indicator base, and said "that's it!" So a few tywraps later...
No announcement yet.
