  • inspecting internal chamfers ect...

    I know that this has been discussed here, but I cant seem to find the thread.

    We are going to be inspecting some connectors..There is no way to inspect internal chamfers on the CMM, but I know that there is something that you can get to "pour" into the part and then inspect on a comparator.

    RTV, just make sure it is dimensionally stable (GE makes a dimensionally stable 2 part RTV specifically for this). That stuff dentists use I'm not sure what it is.

      We use Dow Corning 3112 RTV Silicone Rubber with the #4 Catalyst.
      I think we get it from Applied Industrial.
      When in doubt, post code. A second set of eyes might see something you missed.

          Flexbar also makes a "quick setting puty" reporubber. The thin pour will get into tiny places that are hard to reach with the puty, but the puty sets up hard and is easier to get a reading from on the comparator. If you are working with large cavities you might try dental plaster, but make sure you use a release agent, (like WD-40). HTH

              I could use a 4th leg. That would keep my other date from getting jealous.

                  Uhhhh Flexbar perhaps?

                  All this talk of Flexbar got me pulling out an old catalog. It seems once upon a time J Pick was looking for a microscope. I see Flexbar has a selection in his price range. I wonder if he ever got one?

                    Actually, I got it from the third drawer, right side front quadrant of my Kennedy Model 297 roller cabinet! Previous residence was an unnamed place of employment. Really, it's good stuff Maynard. It melts @ 117 Deg. F and is reusable. I keep some in an old tuna can and heat it w/ a propane torch. Very stable and no need for a release agent.

                    Been looking at some other postings and can kinda get a feel for the personalitys involved----and---just a thought. I wonder if anyone (Craiger?) would try this stuff in an unrinsed tuna can??

                      Not me, the only Hot Tuna I dig is the band.

                      However, give me a properly rinsed can and one of these http://www.aaftankmuseum.com/Flame%20Thrower.jpg and we are in bussiness.

                        We use lead. We melt it with a heat gun(looks like a hair drier) and then pour it into the part. It hardens really quick and can then be looked on at on the comparator.

                          PLEASE remember when using lead that it is toxic...you dont want to harm co-workers so put your face directly over the melting pot and breath deeply, your lungs will act as a purifier and keep co-workers safe. REMEMBER SAFETY FIRST!!!

                            You could pack Ricin and Anthrax spores in there then measure that.
