  • Second side of part with the same fixture doing the bearing bore for a tapered roller bearing outer race.

  • Continuing from the video: is a very nice finish and the cylindricity is very good well within a few tenths. Aluminum block with the cylindrical support of the paper is what allows this to almost do as accurate a job as lapping but with much faster material removal. We indexed to a new section of film for every part.

  • The pin provides a initial alignment when installing the screws from behind. Screws are just snug and then the part is tapped in indicating on the ID of the alignment fixture. Then the screws are fully tightened. One thing I forgot to mention about the bolt pattern on the back of that fixture plate is it also looks like one of the constellations visible from my planet during the 5th season πŸ‘½πŸ›Έ

  • Hopefully glass syringes for the win. I forgot to mention the purpose of the spring clip is to prevent the plungers from falling out or just moving from gravitational force. They are virtually friction free. I realize that that may make them actually more difficult to use for very thin fluids or possibly in general.

  • Sometimes a simple custom hardened guide bushing can make a difficult operation easy. The step drill allows the .0.250" diameter bushing to also pilot the drill which is smaller at the tip for a ream allowance.

  • A V block reconditioning for @brigmanengineering who has had more patience than is humanly possible. Note to self... grinding dead soft material is a nightmare in not  scratching the part even with precision ground flat stones.

  • A 20" straight edge from @blacksheepcrossmember. Two day delivery from England to the US via UPS express Saver. My first camel back style straight edge. Cant wait to scrape it, but thats not going to happen anytime soon 😒 Very nice work Clive! πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘πŸ’ͺπŸ”₯

  • No rocket surgery here. Yes, traditional knurled steel bodies pressed on would be very nice but this is a start.
