    In my experience, when people talk about a slipped disc they mean a herniation.

    You could certainly make a vacuum fixture that would hold on an O.D. from the side, but locating might be interesting.

    Now Gregor, I don't know about you, but at this point I'm starting
    to think the OP needs to word his posts more carefully. Your reading is just fine by me... :D

    Or maybe it's Starrett we need to...

    Ret is for "Retract" not return. Looks like an Enerpac ram. Also looks like someone has been hammering on the side of it. And no, not a puller.

    You are correct, but I mislabeled the sketch, so the math is still good. The .240" should have been on the bottom of the triangle. I threw that .240" dimension up there after the math was done......

    I fully agree on dial indicators being better than digital for most tasks. Regarding the gage vs. gauge - Starrett calls them bore gages, not gauges.

    Generally the tightest I ever need is .0002" or so bilateral, but I don't make large runs of parts.

    I'm guilty of that one as well. It does work great too. And is very quick. That sweep at zero and with the couple tilts is a good idea Buck, saves having to spin grind the whole ball.

    I don't think so. Aside from the fact that the seller probably knows what he has judging by his length of time here, those are pretty clearly brazed together two-piece shafts. That strongly suggests...

    Don't feel bad, I missed the "digital" part of the question until this re-read. :ack2: Mine are actually all analog dials.

    Yep Marcus, that is exactly what I'm doing. That is a good question, and is part of what I'm trying to work out via experimentation. The Monoset ops manual doesn't cover that very well. In sum total,...

    Yes that's so, but the important part is usually helped by running the carb "dry." I've done this too and it does the trick if there's no easily accessible bowl drain. Although there certainly is...

    I've got all of them from the smallest up to 12". I've never had an issue with them. They all measure on 2 points, the "3-point" versions are only 3-point to help self-centering.

    I meant more that a CNC could easily make any motions one wanted, since they're not constrained by physical mechanisms like the helical generator. I'm not really sure if there are actually any real...

    Marcus, no, those are existing cutters I aim to emulate. I did a straight 12° positive gash on the ball groove cutter because it's going to be needed soon. I did try some experimenting with the...

    Adding a couple pictures of the sort of helical gashing I mentioned earlier for Buck to reference since they can't be added to PMs.

    I don't think he needed to start a new thread for this post. That is good info for estimating grinding time and it added to the information already contained here.

    Did you check the I.D. of the spindle nose? The adapter may be part of the problem, or not correctly seated. Pull it and check for dirt, chips or burrs. All that said, .003" runout isn't the end of...

    I have used the tap/nudge a few times on chucks to straighten them out also. Works a treat. And yeah it's a little tough to use a wedge with no shoulder. I think Larry might be right about being able...

    I removed two of mine that were on Moore taper adapters with a wedge some time ago. Wedge works. I always put mine back together with heat. Heat the chuck to a couple hundo degrees F in the oven and...

    Should be close enough. With the flexures you ought to be able to change the effective diameter by quite a lot just by squeezing or pulling apart the handles.
