    This manufacturer was having a problem machining a 0.025-inch diameter oil feed hole at an angle in a hardened steel component called the Bronson Roller. The 30-degree angle of entry and the hardened condition of the roller body made it a difficult task for conventional drilling. The part was one of a family of parts that vary in OD and oil hole angle of entry.

  • Masters of the Small Hole

    Hole making is considered the most frequently performed metalworking operation. Hole making on a micro level, say 0.010 inch and smaller, is where it gets interesting. This shop is very good at making small holes.
