The job of the day is the recess at the back of the chuck which needs to be precisely done so that it fit the registration boss on the spindle flange without any wobble. I asked Dave my last couple of questions on the forum so that I've clear images in my mind of how I should carry out this operation.
Not much pics taken as the session was rather short. I was concentrating intensely when bring the recess to its final size.
Next up, the mounting holes. The 3 holes are clearance holes for M6 cap screws. After completing the recess, I suddenly realized that I have forgotten to scribe the PCD for the mounting holes... All is not lost, me think. I've on order from Little Machine Shop in US a set of M6 Transfer Screws. The recess will help to locate the collet chuck while I tapped the part to transfer the hole locations.
This is how the set of Transfer Screws looks like, for those whom I tried asking if they're available in SG.
But I'm still concern about one thing; will the trapped air causes the collet chuck not seating properly affecting the transferring of hole locations to be off?
I'll know when I received the item, together with a 3" angle plate.
That is all for today. Have a blessed week ahead with unceasing fruitfulness! Shalom.
