Friend of a friend stops in and asks if I will meet with an associate to build a part.
“Is it anything sketchy?”
“No, it’s legit, he just doesn’t want to disclose too much information just yet”
“Ok, lets see the print”
It’s a pen drawing, not to scale, with metric dimensions and decimal conversions. No tolerances listed.
This should be interesting. “I’m in. What’s the budget?”
I’m already loving the ‘new’ Wells bandsaw, despite the dull blade that came with it.
I had to flip the plate to finish the cut, which leaves a sharp flange on the slug.
Cleaned up and turned to size.
Cutting the second step.
First and second steps cut.
Rough bore for center plug.
Bore and plug.
Pressed and ready to weld.
Drilling the center plug.
Bore to size.
Turning and facing to finished dimensions.
Cleaned up weld. Nothing touches that area, so finish isn’t critical.
And from the back.
Don’t know what it does, but it will bring someone closer to their vision.
