2023 got off to a slow start at home, but I ended up with 3 jobs in a week in February. First job was a quickie rework job to machine a step in some parts I made a while ago. Revision change. I forgot to take a pic of it.
Next job was a 16 pc order of different coupling parts (4pc+8pc+4pc) machined out of Ø4.0" 1018. These parts are getting milled, Wire EDMed, and one set splined. I was just tasked to do the turning OPs.
This job was HOT and they needed me to machine them over the weekend so they had time to send the parts out for the other OPs on Monday.
I did not have time to get the blanks sawn to length, so I asked the guy at the metal shop if he could just cut the 22" long bar I had in half. I had some rusty 1018 on the shelf already, but I bought a remnant to complete the order.
I chucked up the bars in Big Zak, faced them, drilled a 1.125" hole in them and parted them off. I then machined OP 2 and 3 in Junior as a double chuck operation.
