Trunnion Mounts -1
On the Armstrong 80 lb RML model cannon, the trunnions are secured to the carriage with steel brackets riveted to the carriage sides, and the trunnions rotate in a bronze bearing.
Tidied the parts with a file and belt sander.
The bronze bearing involved some basic lathe work.
I had a bit of milling excitement while cutting out the steel components. I was using a 6.35mm 4 flute carbide cutter, and when I started the program the machine plunged into the shape at extremely high speed. When I checked, the feed speed was 60 times higher than I had specified. Somehow, the units had changed from mm/minute, to mm/SECOND. Amazingly, the cut was close to perfect with no damage to the workpiece. But, alas, it wrecked the carbide cutter.
I had recently upgraded the CNC software (Vectric V-Carve Pro) from version 10 to 10.5. Maybe some of my settings in the program had been changed in the upgrade? I never use mm/second. That is a woodworking CNC router unit.
