Hi again All:
So I've been showing you some of the little headscratchers that I've been making lately.
Now I've finally got one together and it's quite the tricky little bugger if I do say so myself.

The challenge was to line up to the existing M1 x 0.25 threads in the pressure transducer so that the linkage on the left side of the first photo will snug up against it in the proper radial orientation.
Obviously every transducer has a different thread orientation, so I had to find a clever way to get the alignment for each one.

So I made the threaded 1 mm stem you guys saw a couple of weeks ago.
Here's the link: Single point threading M1 x 0.25. Anyone done it?

Then I made the goofy little ball end that I showed yesterday.
Here's the link for that: Another turning challenge...ridiculously small parts

Today I made a linkage with an axial hole in it and a couple of tapered cross bores.
I threaded it all together, lined it up, and shot a tack through the cross bore with the laser welder.
Now I just have to fill up the keyhole welds and it is DONE.

Very fiddly but I'm happy it worked as well as it did.

3 more to make: hope the customer likes it and can live with the bill!

Cheers

I’d have trouble making that if the hole was 30mm never mind that, I must say it’s use fascinates me, tiny R&D costs more than big, congratulations, like the weld
