I thought you would like this .

The main office in all of their wisdom and CNC machines gave this thing to me.

No CNC here LOL

70 pounds of Iron

Lots of fun making it run straight.

Is your camera date set wrong or am I in a time warp again? We also want more story to go with the pictures.

I work for a pump company . This is the discharge case casting . We needed something special and it did not exist . This adapts the pump to the pipe the other side has 2 threaded bores : 8 " NPT and 3" LH special .

The first picture is after I got it off of UPS .
The second picture is after I finished it ...last hole drilled and tapped

I do not know why the main office just did not put it into a CNC and hit go.

If your camera is like my Fuji then every time you cahnge the batteries the date reverts to 2004 - a pain when you forget (nearly every time - must be age)
