The machine shop is always having to adapt their machines to accept differant types and sizes of jobs. The picture shows a large end bearing housing from a ships generator that had a worn bearing housing.
The plate would’nt fit our Webster Bennett vertical borer, but it just squeezed into the three axix bed mill. The cast iron end plate was bored out to accept a new steel bearing housing that was pulled into place and securred with some drilled and tapped “Yankee” feathers. The final steel insert was then bored to suit the bearing size given and finally honed to size prior to delivery over the weekend.
