Engineering and Fabrication Movies

In this movie we 'clock' the internal taper of a locomotive piston, then machine the taper on the rod to suit. The rod gets checked to the original taper with that of the new angle to compare for 'before' and 'after' to produce an improved fit. The components are machined, polished and 'blued' together to a perfect joint ready for the press which will apply an excess of 50 tons to ensure tapers are locked together before being held with a pinned nut.
