Australia is metric but utilising both imperial & metric gives a much better idea. Using collet chucks & m/c drills with Morse tapers & matching Arbors wherever you can, Centre drilling first(always), drilling in stages up to allowance for reamer, locking table sideways before starting the cut. Short series whenever you can & lots of coolant/oil 0.1mm allowance for reamer & even 0.001mm dial gauges on table when cutting to see any movement. Always making sure temperature of material doesn't rise. 20.5 degrees Celsius when measuring. I see many not measureing temperature before measuring work. Good stuff for me as skills have to be honed & tested for my own confidence. Cheers & hope any suggestions help. You look & sound more than capable. Cheers

Totally agree about material temp. Many people don't consider this and when aiming to hit tight tolerances it's a must.

A “jobber” drill bit mainly refers to the length in modern times. And, if the fit between the dowel pins and crank case holes were within .001” you wouldn’t be able to slide them in and out. I do love your cars though, good work.

I wonder if you could put a thread on the rods and a corresponding thread in the larger iron parts, would require some calcs to get it all lined up but with the longer engines might help clamp the sections better. Of course I may be talking out of my exhaust :)

Find a way to contact me. I can get you any combo of reamer you need. Consider using piloted reamer’s for your final sizing, to maintain your positioning. With your tooling, a pilot of the existing hole size will help eliminate the runout you are concerned about. Tell me what you need, and I can make it happen. Thrilled watching your enthusiasm for the rotary. My first car was a one-owner 73 Rx2 coupe. I had it for 30 years, and sold it to a NZ enthusiast, so it could live on. I ran out of sources for parts and expertise. I guess I bailed out about 6 years too soon! Keep going!
Darryl Cavanaugh
Darryl Cavanaugh پیش ماه
I can get you double margin drills to get you started, and then core drills to get you to the reaming phase, so you are not making such large cuts from the start, which should equal less variance. There is always another way to get where you want to be! I drill large holes, using hand drills, that require .001 tolerances, for a living. With your equipment, it should be a cake walk!

I would not call what I used to do "precision" fabrication, but I would always drill each hole 3 times, working up in size each time. I didn't have precise tooling, so I improvised.

Rob stop thing of that milling machine as a High dollar drill press! The thing will make perfectly round holes, you first drill a smaller hole, big enough for the milling bit you going to use to fit in, then you program the mill to take out all the remaining in material out in steps to under .05, then you make one final pass to size using long fluted tool bit in one cut. I've been a machinist my whole life and when these CNC machines came out we all had to change the way we did things, and once you learn how to use them you can mill stuff to within .003+/- with very simple programming. I wish I was close to help out. Also, I haven't seen which software you are using to program with, or if you even have one. If you don't get one, programming by hand on the console is the hardest way and also the easiest way to make mistakes. GibbsCAM CAD/CAM is what I would suggest if you don't have one, if you do have one let me know what it is, and I'll see about getting it or going over it to see its features. Might be able to do some side programming for you.

You're not a "Countryist" we Germans love it, when people from around the globe appreciate our precision technology. If I've learnt anything from living here my entire life and my experience in tech highschool, it's that if there's a very niche technology product, that only about a hundred people in the world could be interested in, a German company probably makes it and it probably has no serious competition.

Couldn't watch the whole thing, you need to hire a real machinist. Or at the very least call a reputable tool company like Guhring and get the proper tools for making holes. You need to leave the proper amount f material for a reamer and feed it at the proper speed to achieve the desired size. You are not close.

In the end of the code use "G91 G28 Z0 Y0" makes the table come to you. If you want you can divide the code into two movements if you are close to the part. "G91 G28 Z0", "G91 G28 Y0"

never turn a reamer backwards!!! By the way im pretty sure its a 16H7 or H6 hole. So with an 16.00 reamer it would be perfect fine.

I loved working on the HAAS, terrible tool changers if it was dirty, but everything else was great, well the coil style chip auger was terrible unless the material was literally 1mm chips. I ran a lot of older model HAAS FANUC style machines. Your tool selection I'm jealous of, you're production quality now!

Rob that’s still going to run out like crazy drilling with an endmill. Go boring bar or circle interpolate with an endmill after pre drilling the hole to get the stock out.

No you are not making a "billet" iron! Because like so many other parrots you don't even know what billet really means and why it is the most misused word in all the tuning car communities around the world. And like the other parrots you just keep spreading nonsense.
sprinten8 پیش ماه
those high feed protection moves on that probe had me clenching my butt cheeks, also why did it orient when probing one of the holes? that would technically give you some grey area since it should probe the holes at the exact orientation that you calibrated the ruby at.

Just finished the video. I have about 10,000 hours running that exact machine in many settings including aerospace where the tolerances will make you squint for the decimal. For a super high precision hole like that. I would not plunge with a long 5/8ths. I'd use the shortest possible tool, undersized to the largest common diameter (i.e. 9/16ths) and do a helical interpolation. I realize there is more then one way to do things. But if you need to hit EXACT numbers with no margin for error. Reducing tool length as much as possible to reduce tool deflection and vibration as much as possible is your best bet. Run the helical like 0.010 undersize then inspect with the probe and gauge pins. Then start comping out your tool diameter offset till your dead on the money. Doing this will get you right where you want and as the tool wears you can comp it out a smidge to get back in tolerance and run it till your finish is no longer acceptable. Reaming also works well as you showed. I'd mill it out to -0.005-0.012 under target depending on material and ream it from there. Again for super tight tolerance a reamer that is under 0.0005 might be the way to go. As I was taught "You can always remove more material, putting it back is a lot harder"
