Where I work, we use these small steel spheres to measure ball depth in our parts.


We use them to measure anything and everything lol. What is your position at work?

I work with CNC lathes (a line consisting of a centering machine, straightener, Frontier lathe and four other lathes of the same design) and produce shafts for automatic transmissions. The ball depth from centering is the only thing we use them for. What position do you hold?

During the spring and summer I like recording thunderstorms. I thunderstorms so much I'll watch my videos over and over again just to relive it. I would probably go storm chasing if I lived closer to the plains where the good supercells form and I had the gas money to drive hundreds of miles.

Nice loud thunder crashes from last year... lightning gets scary at the very end.

We use Mori Seiki lathes (one line uses SL-25As and the other uses SL-803s).

Mori Seiki lathes are good, as are Mazaks. It is a dream of mine to own an Okuma. I just wish Mori Seiki would not use Fanuc NC Control system. Gibbs is much better.
