I was walking through the shop tonight and saw something awesome happening. I took some crappy photos to show you (and I’m not sorry about it!).
Our Cold Metals area host, Mike, holding a big piece of metal. He’s going to turn it into a smaller piece of metal.
Mike and Dean work on centering the piece.
This is the part they’re trying to reproduce. This is a pulley for our new(ish) Johnson horizontal band saw. You’ll note that it’s bent. It’s also incorrectly sized, so there’s a bushing that’s been inserted that you can’t see. This bushing has no key, so the pulley was fairly noisy and inefficient.
