Default First real project

Need to make 1 7/16 shaft 22" long with a 3/8 keyway for a bucket elevator head pully and gearbox at work. Wish me luck.

Sounds fairly easy to do. I'm sure you are up up it.

Keep an eye on the taper.... Keep mic-ing (spelling?) both ends.

So first i removed the 4 jaw chuck and put the 3 jaw on. I've got it on solid info that 4 jaw chuck hasn't been off in 20 years.

The 3 jaw pulled up right to the d1-6 spindle nose but the chuck is a bit wobbly. Glad I started with 2" stock.

I took off ten thousands at a time and checked both ends regularly. When I got close to size i took lighter cuts and checked with one of the new bearings that will be installed.

Then I put the conventional mill head on the Kearny & Trecker, took the quick change tool holder from the Gorton (still in pieces) and cut a 3/8 keyway. I went a total of .173 for the keyway.

Surface finsih leaves a little to be desired but i ised my roughing insert and holder instead of changing it out and fooling with center height etc. A quock change tool post is on the Christmas list.

You can't expect a mirror finish with HR stock. Looks ok.

Of course you could have put a flap disc in your grinder and smoothed that shaft out,with the shaft turning at the same time.
