Been busy lately with things. Chad has some new toys in his arsenal now.
I got my old fixtures back from Nesika last week. They were DIRTY. Hadn't been used in over 3 years! That's fine with me cause no one left there really knew how they worked anyway. I made all of these when I first went to work for them.
Sooo, I'm in good shape now. Saves me a whole hoot of work.
Here's a few pics:
And here's the latest project. I've been contracted by an ammunition company to make 3 chamber gauges. 50 holes X 3 blocks. 150 holes total chambered in 5.56mm NATO. About as fun as invasive dentistry without the anesthesia, but it's a challenge to hold +/- .00025" on the depth so I kinda like that part. I had a rough go at first. Smoked a reamer on the first hole. It's been a bit of a learning curve but she's cutting really good now. I should have the first one finished tonight.
Here's a few pics of these little biches too:
