In the tailstock mine is usually left in too.

Most shops I’ve worked in, it can’t be left in, the chucks and keys are too loose from wear and abuse and they fall out.

Do you have to clean any burrs up on the inside of the pipe so it does not create any wierd air vortexes?

I remember one of the shop teachers at school:

"how many jaws do you tighten on a 3 jaw chuck?:

uh....3?

"NO 4 YOU IDIOT!"

cut the spuds to the finish length and rolled all of the sharp edges. They are now ready for the minions to install

Trust me, if they need an “extra” one, there will extreme cost involved, set up time to do a one off, I shudder to think how high it could amount to. Not plasma table cost, but maybe an indexing head!

I finished up the damper this morning, I will still have to make the linkage to operate the damper, but that will be done, at boiler start up. This morning I finished up the drive motor mounting plate, as far as the damper is concerned, all it really needs a minion applied paint job.


the damper is shown with the sample/pattern drive motor
