    Default handy pipe rig

    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...

    I used a setup similar to that, except I had a scr drive motor on it for welding stainless tubes, the torch was hand held. after the speed was set and all I had to do was stirke the arc and hold the torch.

    I have used ball bearings on turntables and rollers, never had one go bad passing 100 amps or less thru it.

    necessity is the mother of invention or something like that........... good job!!

    Trust me, if I had time to put a motor on it I would , but have a time frame to get these done. I got five of them done and reinstalled on the machines today. I also had a different kind roller on it today that I had to weld a shaft on @ 210 amp's! The sealed SKF bearings I used should handle anything the Sync 350 can throw at them.

    Thank's for the replies.
