This new version calculates the Pitch Diameter and the Wire Measurement for 60 degree threads. If you wish to use it for metric threads, all values must first be converted to Inches. I had asked our users if they knew or could port to mobile devices, and received no response. Thus, I created a little calculator that fits perfectly in the hand.
I had wanted to use number inputs for the calculator, so on mobile, a number pad would rise instead of the full QWERTY keyboard. But, I’m sure for some mobile users, the decimal inputs would be invalidated as they clicked the next field (as it did me). Fixing that issue is a bit beyond my capability.
Again, this is a much simpler calculator than the original. Later I may add more words and diagrams.
Occasionally a customer will ask us to duplicate a sample part. Most of the time the part was custom made years ago by others, or it is an item that simply cannot be ‘purchased.’ I have uploaded pictures into the Welding page, showing the finished product (Left), next to the sample part (Right). We are calling it a lift, as that is what it appears to do for this customer. The job required little machining, some rod bending, and welding with the TIG setup.
Customer needed some safety chains welded to his trailer and a small mod to mount a jack. So we grabbed the 110v portable MIG welder and welded it all up in the parking lot in a matter of minutes, according to the customers requests. I’ve uploaded a few images of the event, Check them out in the Gallery.
Checking for concentric bearings in this airplane wheel hub. We zeroed in with an indicator then lowered our z axis until we made contact with the internal journal. Sadly, the two surfaces were out of alignment and the customer will have to re-seat the internal journals.
If you are one of those people who have been frequenting the Tools section on our web page, I am now allowing the FREE download of the Three Wire Calculator, and Metric Converter. It may be for a limited time, or may not be, I have not decided. I have also updated the download links for the Drill Chart. If anyone has any trouble with the downloads, let me know and I will get right on it.
Some of you may have noticed, Monroemachineinc.com was “a reported attack site.” I have already gone through the server and cleaned all i could find of the malicious code someone was able to force on the system. All is well now and i hope no one had any trouble from this.
