    [–] Running something this big this far out is a little scary even with the steady rest. Got her running pretty good tho. ericpol3 2 points ago in Machinists

    I’m pretty sure it’s a Gardner then, I’ve done one Besley with the spline on the back but this one just has the one key way. I haven’t gotten to see one run yet, but they’re finishing up a Gardner at the shop right now and they’re going to be running parts off soon!

    I’m in CT I’m not sure which machine this one is from, I just started this job about a month ago but we build/ rebuild Dual Disk Grinders.

    Oh yeah quality isn’t the best on the video haha. Yeah I ground the barrel as a reference area and there are bearing dimensions on the front and back of the spindle that I indicate in as well

    I’m definitely going to use this trick in the future! Genius idea, many thanks!

    Lmao it’s all good man been a lot of people asking why I didn’t grab it with my hand, it’s just that a 10mm wrench is pretty small and the smooth metal isn’t a very good gripping surface so I figured the pliers would hold a lot better than my hands.

    The head of the wrench was stuck in the rubber, my big meaty claws didn’t have the gripping strength to pull it out.

    Thank you :( what’s worse is that these tyres are discontinued, and since my car is AWD it looks like I might be buying 4 new tyres 😩
