    Did a grille for a customer.
    That was definately one of the more difficult jobs I've done, considering all the small details I cant show.

    A bit of milling in some mold cavities. Right side finished, middle and left side just roughed out.

    How loud is that air speeder? I got one I tried but holy hell with ear plugs and muffs I still couldn't stand next to the machine.

    It's a fairly loud whine. Like a jig grinder, or an ID grinder on a cylindrical. My guys use ear plugs when they use it. Any air turbine is going to whine. Don't know if electric is any quieter. Can't remember if we looked at electric or if they even make one.

    Electric is much quieter. They also have them coolant driven, but I haven't tested the one I've got, so can't speak to how loud it is. My gut says nothing's gonna be as loud as an air driven turbine.

    As I mentioned in a previous post in this thread..this ain't CNC, more akin to "fabra-cobble" but that's my bag baby! I built this pyramid roll probably 30 years ago to roll brass rings for several banjo makers. I recently sold it to a company I do work for and they asked that it be put on a base of some sort and covered with a skin to make it look nice and hide the guts from probing fingers and long pony tails. They also requested a little DRO to allow the operator to dial in a setting to recreate a bend at a future time. Nothing fancy..tin, paint and Chinese digitals..but it paid well!

    Well my first question when I saw this was how are you going to calibrate this. You more than answered that. I did have to laugh though. I worked for the company that made that gauge from 1989 until 2000. Great company to work for and it was good to see their products still being used and restored. Great job.
