    Stainless shaft buildup / remachining setup

    Bernie: Are your weld zones long stretches of shaft or short zones? If short. I think the cold wire tig is the right thing. We regularly do build up and re-machine on slender stainless agitator shafts from 7/8" to 1.50" dia.... short seal zones and bearing journels. We have...

    Making custom seals for an old high pressure CO2 valve?

    I have had success machining replacements for rubber sealing elements from PTFE. Round objects are easily lathe turned from bar stock. Years ago I machined PTFE vee stacks in a size I could not find. Mcmaster has now added that size to their list (9572k32) so I no longer need to make them...

    Sanding or grinding some 304 stainless to make it flat, how would you do it?

    Oil seals

    It is unusual to see a lip seal size that cannot be found in Dichtomatik's (800-328-2840) catalog list. However, Garlock did make a lot of unique sizes for OEMs which can no longer be found. TCM_Dichtomatik does list a couple sizes that might work for you. A metric 71x88x8TC...

    can you heat up UHMW in an oven to un-banana it?
