Default Made a thin bushing

Coworker asked me if I wanted a challenge yesterday. He need a thin seal install bushing made to install a $200 seal without cutting it on sharp edge of a hydraulic motor shaft. I turn out a piece of alum round for him. It was only about .030” thick in the big part tapering to nothing for the seal to start, and where it went over the shoulder, was only .010” thick. He and the boss was impressed. Probably will be making more of these in the future for different applications. When I parted it off, it created a slightly rolled edge that keeps it snug on the shaft, so it should work good.Click image for larger version

Nice job! I had to do the same thing when I put my Rivett lathe back together.

Back in the day I asked Dad what machine tool to start with. He didn't hesitate a lick. "Start with a Lathe" It can build every other tool in the shop was his reply
