Anyway, I received an assignment from my father, who is in the business of manufacturing syrups for making drinks among others. One of his distribution channel is to coffeeshops and food courts where the company also supplies dispensing machines that keep the pre-mixed drinks chilled. The assignment is to make several pieces of bushing for the dispensers in 304 stainless.
The job was previously done by the machine shop next to his SG office. Due to the small quantity per order (50 each batch), the machine shop is rather reluctant to continue with the work.
I was presented a sample, done by the machine shop, and the original that came with the machine. The cut out, according to my dad, is not critical.
You can see how badly worn is the used piece.
The insert you see on the tool holder is HSS, bought from AR Warner.
