Some may call these "radially relieved locating pins."
I need a particular size diamond pin that will take 2+ weeks to have special made. I need it quicker than that.
I already have round pins that are the correct size. I am considering pressing round pins in both locations, then hard milling the reliefs in one pin.
Has anyone tried this before? (distortion?)
Thanks for any words of wisdom.
Many times, I used to hold the pin in a spare drill chuch & hand grind the diamond. Also used Deltronic or similar class pins & ground two flats to approx 1/3 the dia. Orient the flat or diamond in the proper direction, & press into place.
