Default Re: Two tooth steerg box

Just a thought... whenever I have to press two parts together I always check the with precisely. If the part is supposed to be a press fit it only takes 1-2 thousandths for it to work depending on the diameters involved. If one of the parts is off by just 2 thou it doesn't matter what you do or how you do it it aint gonna fit. I saw too many times at work where a coupling with a too small ID was burnt cherry red with a rose bud and then beat all to thunder with a sledge hammer to go on a shaft. If the dia. are correct a couple hundred degrees difference in temp and they slide together real nice and you can calculate the temp needed by measuring and determining the interference.

Steve B. I may take you up on that! I'm coming out to Denver in about two weeks to visit my daughter.

Hey Steve,
Thanks for this info/procedure, you make it sound easy /painless !

Joe,
Yeah, I agree totally with your summation. Business people who act/perform professionally with customers, most often, end up with a win/win situation !
