Anyone out there doing (or want to do) any job shop work on their C6 lathe (or any other CNC lathe)? I have 3 parts I need made on a continual basis (drawings attached). All are aluminum, involve threading, and are about 2" diameter. I order in batches of 50 to 100 about 8-10 times a year (hopefully that will increase). Been doing this for over almost 2 years so I'm an established customer. My current supplier went out of business suddenly (IRS problems).
Drawings are attached. The 3 tapped holes on the "Bottom Cap" can be omitted as that operation is generally beyond the capabilities of most "home lathes" and we can do it as a second op in house. Likewise with the small threaded hole in the "Top Cap". Drill the tap hole but no need for "hard tapping" capabilities on your lathe. We can do the tapping as a second op.
Going to put this out for general bid, but I thought I would give members of the group a chance. This is a nice job to run in the evenings and weekends. Other work could come from this for someone that does a good job.
I have references to show I'm a legit customer for anyone that wants them.
