    Having a go at some unobtainium classic car hinges for the lulz. Have enjoyed working out the tooling so far, next up make the jig for the bottom hinges.

    macds, is a "visual structural component" something like architectural trim? Fancy modular frame?

    Thank you, I try my best to avoid production work for the simple reason, I feel each part is my "art".
    As goofy as that might sound.

    Well, here is a job that we tooled/set up last fall.
    Job was s'posed to be 350/week x 3 diff parts.
    These two were similar. The 3rd one quite a bit shorter with no center section.

    My chum was building weldment stands that went with these too.
    These are service tools and we had a at the projected volume, but they said that they had been buying them in China and was just trying to source US, so - I guess they would know their market... ???

    The customer wanted the first 4500 as fast as we could git them out to fill the US pipeline, but the first run needed to be 150 pcs each.
    Good to check that we are all on the same page and whatnot.

    We tooled these 2 up on an Acme.
    Got the first 150 out with an 80% set-up. Still needed to build roller supports for 3 stations to git rid of all the talk (chatter) from the big form tools.

    Was designing the roll supports and was expecting approval or ??? and an order with multiple releases right away, but all we was getting was crickets.
    I started dragging my feet on the roll supports until I heard something.
    I did hear that the parts were received and approved, but ... was expecting them to be pushing us for shipments, and .. nothing....

    These are 2" round 12L14 by around 5" long.
    One with a 1" hole, the other with a 3/4 hole.
    The knurls were put on second opp in a CNC lathe, but I planned to add that into the Acme, but again - would need to build tooling to make that happen.
    (Acme's don't have 2x slides typically)

    Most of my chip conveyors are hand crank, and so was the one on this machine.
    This was a problem as the conveyor needed to be moving pretty much all the time.

    I don't recall the cycle time on this. It could have been 1 minute, or it could have been 30 seconds. (I think 1 minute the more that I think about it)
    With 6 spindles running, you could watch the chips pile up before your eyes.
    If you let the conveyor set for more than 1 cycle, they would pile up and half way plug up!
    So we were getting ready to add a motor and control to the conveyor.

    Haven't ran another one since!

    Not to worry TeachMePlease:

    Your secrets are safe with me.

    Now what size was that again?
    Majestic, Unremarkable, or Pathetic?

    It's a mad mad world!

    Any idea how imbarassing it is to polish a mold for those suckers?
    Giant, glorious, veiny bastard...

    Pepperidge farms (and me) remembers.

    Nice work Marcus
