    its a small 50 mm x 40 mm x 3.45 mm hardened steel plate that needs to be ground down to 3.30 mm.
    i was thinking a linisher would work then hand lapping but probably wont retain the required precision (parallelism)

    We have made a few of these plates for a quick change pallet, which our customer then mounts their own jigs to.

    The finished plates and jigs are all being used to feed this big bastard which is ex-holden I believe. They are setting up to be running 24/7 lights out.

    Thatís awesome. I think I saw some videos from one of their guys on the titans of cnc page. Pushing some carbide pretty quick in steel.

    I just recently figured out how to run the parts gripper and parts catcher on the lathe. I had tried previously with no success but got it this time round. Ran some parts for another mob in town. Just put a piece of bar in the jaws and let it do itís thing. Itís peanuts compared to robot pallet loaders but still a small win.

    I knocked these out today. Iím repairing a stripped axle and the guy said itís a common thing so changed the thread pitch. Couldnít get any off the shelf nuts this size and type so had to custom make some. First time Iíve done internal threading. I only have external thread mics so made a male threaded stub to check the female threads.

    Next part of the job is to mount up the axle in the mill and thread mill a new thread to match these nuts. Just waiting on the thread mill to arrive.
