    threads after tumbling

    Hey all! We have a new production part (6061) that has 4-40 2B threads that gets tumbled (per customer order). The deburr girl has been having to inspect and chase almost every thread after tumbling, so she and I are running a check. I gauged every single thread before tumbling and they were...

    mitutoyo blade mic

    Good day all! I have a Mitutoyo 0-1 blade mic here, and the spindle has about 15 degrees of play in it. I would like to try to fix it, but I can't seem to find the information anywhere. The tool is in good shape otherwise; as long as the blade is in the proper position, it passes everything...

    parasolid viewing software and other questions

    Hello all, Our customer is requiring us to view their models so we don't have to keep bugging them. Procad help topics said I could import the .x_t file in and change it to .3d file to view it, but I wasn't able to. Anybody have experience with this? The next step, if that won't work, would be...

    broken 10x comparator lens

    Hi everyone.... I came into work this morning to find that the lens on the shop comparator has a bullseye right in the middle. :( It looks like something was dropped on it when it was standing on end. I checked it all out; the shadow is crisp and clear, and it's measuring fine (I compared a...

    problems with depth mic rod

    Yes, I did a search first. I came up with things like "Leblond tailstock adjustment". :confused: Anyway, I ordered a new 0-1" rod for a guy here. The threads on the old one were worn and wouldn't stay in calibration. I cannot get the new nut to move at all! I've got it in a vise (protected...

    Loose micrometer barrel

    Hello All, I am doing the calibration on some Amtos outside micrometers. I saw the zero setting was off by a few tenths, so I put the spanner wrench to it. In my opinion, it was too loose and moved too easily! I would think that it could be knocked back out of whack very easily. My question...

    B&S Reflex CMM

    We have one of these that from my understanding was used very rarely. lately things have slowed down enough for me to "play" with it a little and learn the system. Unfortunately, I am not a very good book learner, and I find the manual to be lacking anyway. I am having a heck of a time just...

    calibration system per ANSI/Mil Std

    I'll start by telling you that I am the QC department where I work. My experience does not lie in the area of being a manager, so I'm learning as I go. :crazy: I recently received aquality system audit from a potential customer. One question is "Does your calibration system meet all of the...

    on checking threads

    Hi All~ We are about to start machining a part with a .4375-20NS (obsolete!!) male thread. We don't normally see this size, so $400 for ring gages is out of the question. (We checked around for a loaner) What I do have is the pitch mic and comparator for checking pitch/minor diameters (and of...

    thimble adjustment on micrometer

    Hi, I've been searching the internet for information, and still cannot find what I'm looking for. I'm hoping someone can help me. I am trying to calibrate a 0-1" Mitutoyo mic (model 202-104). At zero, it reads .016. I cannot find an adjustment for the thimble to set it to zero. If I move the...
