    "Won't get fooled again" is playing on the radio.....a line in the song is "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss".
    Coincidence? Probably.
    I have things like this happen on a reg. basis.

    Yeah, well I can't edit out the "'08", but Chuck might be able to?
    Chuck?



    We've been running an alum extrusion job off and on for several years by now, and it has ran pretty regularly for the last year now, and it finally got it's own lathe a cpl weeks ago. It's the Hardinge T51 that I showed pics of back last summer, but finally got it running.

    First issue was the fact that it was a '94 machine as opposed to the 2003 that it was advertised as, and - while the machine seems to be in VG condition really, some of the features that would have been std in 2003, were but options in '94.

    The 2 options most concerning to me are:

    A) No C axis. It has B axis "indexing" to any whole or 2.5* location, but no interp'ing "C".
    B) Hydro actuated sub, as opposed to ball screw.

    Well, for the job at hand for now doesn't need a sub, but does need a C ... kind'a....

    I need to be able to control feedrate in C, but I don't need to interp. I know that I have covered this elsewhere, but we finally got it put to werk now.

    Fanuc 18T Wanting to slow Spindle Indexing Speed


    This machine had a 10" chuck on it. Not exactly what I want spinning up and down all day if'n I can hep it. So, even tho I had already bought new jaws and nuts for the chuck already, late in the game I decided to splurge and just go for a new collet set-up for it.

    I ordered the Flex C 65 for it, and wasn't expecting this, but it took a cpl months for it to show up, but finally - sometime after the first of the year, I got the new collet chuck in. I had also ordered in an "emergency 20mm" collet to bore out for my application, but the more I looked at it, and the more I chewed on it, the more that I didn't like it ...

    The job has been running in an S-20 (essentially a 20C) collet for years, but has always left indent marks in the part, even with the pressure turned way down, and it's not holding it as well as it should be either, and really needs more pressure... I actually have a "Long Bearing" pad set for it - which doesn't have the rear chamfer in the pads, which yields about 1.5" surface contact, but it really needs more than that, and now IS the time to figger something out eh?

    So I started with trying to design my own version of a FlexC collet, but with a 3" long surface, and ... doo to the way that the FlexC collets go in and out of the chuck (pinch/taper) there would have to be so much taper cut off the slots of the collet to get inserted, that I would lose most of the value that I was after. [grumble]

    "think think think" in my best Pooh voice....

    So I dug out a FlexC to S20 adaptor collet that I already had, and - even tho I'm back to S20's, __THIS __ is gunna werk!

    With the adaptor collet already inserted into the chuck body, I can then insert the pads that don't need to be relieved as they would have to insert the FlexC.

    So then I dug out a chunk of 4140/PH and cut away everything that wasn't an S20 pad, and then I had a 3" bearing surface collet set for my part, and now I don't leave any marks on my parts anymore! (that the vibratory doesn't remove anyway)

    That goes in place of the front sight [tower] on an AR.
    But you still need a gas block, as that is where the gas charge comes out of the barrel, and into the gas tube.

    And then of course - then you can mount your lazer pointer, you swiss army knife, and a toaster onto the rails...

    I make several differen't flavours of gas blocks. Some like this. I make one that retains the bayonette and strap mounts. A few different ones that go on underneath a full floating long handguard... etc.....

    This one is for a "bull" barrel, which is much bigger and longer than a std 16" barrel.

    I used to "flute" bull barrels to make them purty, but my customer bought his own machine and I helped him fixture it up, so now he makes his own. But I have a pic of maybe 200 barrels stacked up on my die table from years ago.

    Hey - you was able to edit the title!

    I really didn't think that you would be able to without moving it to a different board.

    I'm old enough to know the reference, I just thought in shop context "Resin" sounded more authentic
