Interesting to see the tolerance/concentricity it holds. You could have a job making a few of thoseHad a job to do on a boat in Arbroath so wasn't going up to do the Cat today. Went round to the boat, asked the guy exactly what he was wanting. Not going to bother now he says
Ok so I think fine I will head up to the Cat but as I was walking back to the workshop I got apprehended by another fisherman, can you get our hauler plates off, they had been at it for hours and not getting any place. So eventually got them off as last time no coppaslip had been put on by them
So as it was 11am I thought I will wait until I have my dinner then head up to the Cat. I had been looking for ER40 lathe collet chucks but they were all quite expensive so I had a look in the shed and found some 4" dia steel, some kind of tool steel but not sure what.
So started Fusion and drew this up.

Then into the CNC with the steel and made this.

Collet and nut fit fine.

Not enough meat left to part off in the CNC so easier to just chuck in the Triumph using a bit of 25mm dia in the collet yu hold it.

So now I have an ER40 collet chuck for the lathe
Nice! A well honed tool there. What was the doc, it looked very deep?
Cheers for the suggestions, I don't have CNC and the lathe VFD was not on. I have consigned the gopro clone to the bin and bought a new one. The SLR is now working so I really don't know what the problem was!Radiated electrical noise from VFD or CNC system confusing the camera, perhaps...?
