    If the price of repair is twice as much as buyng a new one, as it has to be if your 5,000 sq foot shop goes for 2.5 million, then you ain't gonna sell no repairs, neither.

    Price is always a...

    Nice choice :)

    Could be worse, hunh ? Graphics makes it easy to visualize how bad the situation will be. Are you using commercial software or is this your own code ?

    That's easy enough to change, ten minutes' work in a surface grinder ... but kind of an expensive broach to butcher. Would still work afterwards but take a few more pushes. I've pushed broaches way...

    Like I said, up to GregSY. He can do a shit job like you suggest and have it break or he can do it right, for cheap and just as fast, and have it work for the life of the machine. His choice.

    Those teeth are usually pretty hefty, you could grind a little more space on the back side without weakening them very much, if you are really worried.

    Or you could drill a hole where the keyway...

    Picky mean-spirited comment :) That's actually hobbing. In a Sunderland (or Maag, who invented it a hundred years earlier) the rack stays stationary while the blank rotates across it.

    There are places that do this, but they mostly don't use machine coolant. They are filled with a hydraulic oil or grease in a closed cavity, you slide the part on then tighten a plug in the oil...

    Jeeze, guys, it's not a big deal. Works fine. Broaches are designed to have enough space in the gullet for the chip. He just needs a spacer thing to push it farther down the hole than normal.

    Sorry, I thought you were wackimng us for going off-topic about real estate prices. In my experience, that's the single largest factor in prices these days.

    If he's like the rest of us he 'ported' his small block and then it went slower, didn't idle as well, burnt more fuel, and was generally worse off than before he "improved" it :D

    Truck drivers won't take stuff that's not cleaned out. They are the ones who would get the huge ticket for dropping thirty gallons of goo on the road.

    It will only cut as much metal as there are teeth. You'll probably have to make an externder thingy tho, otherwise you won't be able to push it all the way through.

    Personally, I'd cut off the stupid pins, 95% of brake calipers don't have anything like that and they do nothing but add parts to fail. Then I'd make new pistons with looser than normal o-rings, and...
