I managed to do some work before being interrupted by phone calls. Short of the flat, which I intend to do on the mill, the rest of the features were completed.
|I started with cutting off 2 pieces of stainless steel of 80mm length, 7.96mm in diameter.|
|Using the 3-jaw, one end was faced.|
|After turning a section to 5mm.|
|Nice looking chip...|
|Cutting the groove using the part off tool. I screwed up this one. Supposed to be 3mm but I made it 4mm...|
|Facing the 4mm diameter end to length. The groove at this location is for circlip.|
|Comparing with the sample. The flat will be done later on the mill.|
I started planning for my approach on the 2nd piece (which will be considered the 1st as I boo boo'd on the one I just completed, or almost complete). Th plan is to use the ER16 adapter with collets instead of the 3-jaw chuck, supported at the end with the revolving centre.
|For now, it's tilting of the QCTP.|
|Ok, 5mm diameter across a length of 65mm done.|
Got to stop here as my dad has arrived to pick us up. Going over to the Singapore Food Expo where his company has taken a booth. This is a yearly affair which my daughters enjoy serving up samples of their grandpa's products.

I hope to get back to work when I get home. Long day at showflat tomorrow. Lots of work to clear on Monday. When is my next session after tonight??? Sigh...
