    I think you're right about one line being clamp and one unclamp. My Tsudakoma has a self contained air over hydraulic unit mounted right to the rotary table on the side. An M code sets off a 24v air...

    There are already adjustable torque control tap holders that have been around for many years. I think they handle most if not all of the problem(s) you're trying to solve for.

    Yes-yes... all of the above. Just 2nd-ing these suggestions. And 3rd-ing the fist suggestion that you must accurately measure hole size. Otherwise it's a crap shoot.

    Yes, like he said. I'd also pay attention to the P6 accuracy class. Also listed sometimes as ABEC 3. I'd say standard for a machine tool gear box. They're not spindle bearings, but held to closer...

    Geez, now you got me thinking Ox. That's the problem. I haven't a clue as yet about the finer intricacies of running a bar feeder as part of an automated production cycle. So at this point, all...
