I'm supposed to make 3 sets of 2 pins each with slight difference. The circlip groove is only 0.7mm wide. The width of my part-off blade is 1mm. I was told that that's fine. Will put in the dimensions after measuring the sample with my trusty Mitutoyo digital caliper.
Mike suggested writing codes to do the repetitive part of the job. But I'm thinking of machining them manually. More confident of getting the required accuracy turning the wheels by hands. Maybe after I tune up the lathe...
Hope to put up my progress soon.
