Sounds like its back to 4 jaw chucks and dial gauges then.
Thanks for the inputs.

You would need a lathe with a Y axis for a start so you could maintain the tool centre height.

I did Phil. It is so very impressive! I have no idea what it takes to make the gcode for this part... ??? Are there CAM packages that can handle such things?

Looks to me like the Mazak has a Y axis unless its just an optical illusion.

Clive,

if its a repeat job bore a offset hole in a round billet and split it through the thick side then you can hold it in the three jaw.

Thats a very good idea Graham, but I was only being lazy.
I seem to speed ages setting up 4 jaw chucks
