Titanium M6 waisted bolts

Posted by on Oct 26, 2014 in News | 0 comments

These are some tricky little M6 bolts with waisted shanks, the trickiness is not in machining the shanks but in holding them after to machine the heads. Normally I make the shanks just a thou or two under full diameter so they would be around 5.97mm with the thread diameter 5.85mm which means i can hold onto the shank without damaging the thread. But as these have a 5mm dia shank there’s nothing to hold without damage. So i made a holder for them.
