Northfield Precision Instrument Corp. offers an internal-grip collet chuck originally designed to help a customer clamp the internal diameter of valve balls. The dead-length collet features a removable split part stop that is made of two pieces and hinged. When used in a valve ball grinder, the chuck is capable of locating and stopping a 6"-diameter ball axially with the spacer placed between the ball and chuck. The part stop is removable to provide access around the top and bottom of the ball for the grinding wheel.

  • A Study Of The Steady Rest

    When the length and stiffness of a workpiece make it difficult to machine without distorting or deflecting the part, many manufacturers turn to the steady rest as a workpiece support device. This is especially true for long axles, shafts and similar parts used in automotive or heavy equipment applications, and in oil drilling components. The most common application is to support a workpiece during turning or milling and, increasingly, during secondary operations such as ID drilling, boring and producing end face bolthole patterns.
