    Thanks for sharing. Hopefully will help others in the future. I'm stashing this away in the memory bank. One could also weld up a odd shaped piece out of sheet stock for bigger blocks.

    Clamping on a round surface with a set screw will eventually put that radius into the set screw. This creates a friction stop and set screw over time looses the amount of Clamping force on the...

    In my experience something to think about when throwing a smaller spark gap to crisp up corners.

    When you look at wear % a .0015-.003 spark gap has really high wear rate on the last few power...

    Break carbide off 7 in deep and it will be in a edm for weeks. I'm guessing its going to be tough to find a machine big enough to do this. Good luck [emoji106]

    I would highly recommend Walter drills. Great performance and awsome customer support. One of the best features is the shank diameters step up in common sizes. Makes tooling up much easier.

    You may want to pin gauge the minor diameter before thread milling. This may be causing a problem.

    It the two pins add up to fit the diameter they can only fit standing up straight and show the maximum diameter . Try in a variety of rotations "clocking" to fit.

    In fact two pins only show the maximum diameter of a bore. I guess using 3 equal dia. pins could show if the bore is round to a set tolerance .

    I guess a little geometric explanation would prove how two round pins wouldn't line up in a round bore that they properly add to equal the bore diameter.
