Well might be bad news, that shaft needs to be "ground" and should have been the right diameter for the roller bearing. You can't just polish it up it needs to be ground to the proper diameter all the way back.
It's a good thing it didn't go in or you would have been in trouble shortly down the road.
Those rollers still made by torrington?
& scrambler- pins are awesome I have from .011 minus all the way up to .625 minus and some loose pluses in the sizes I do frequently. There should be a tolerance for the shaft diameter. Everyone should have a 0-1" micrometer in their tool box at least.
The thing is... DON'T DO IT HALF ASS !
Do it right and you will have years of worry free travel, jam it together and "Wham-Bam" you are in trouble.
Not to change up the Topic but...
OK on the Gauge Pins. Have a full set, sizes I would have to check, but they are plus-minus .001 all the way to 1.000".
I have been a Quality Assurance Engineer for 30 years, did everything from Mechanical Inspection, Electrical Component Inspection up to full Ion Implanters, valued around $2Mil and ended up my last five years of working as the Incoming Inspection Supervisor, also did the Tool Calibration for two companies, that how I got my Pin Set.
Yes on the Mics 0-1" is a good size for a lot of things, if you do engine work, then up to 5" is good, with inside Gauge Sets.
That is also why I asked you about the Battery Cover for my Mitutoyo 8" Digital Calipers, now that is a great tool, especially if you can keep the battery in place.
Jamman, How did we leave that anyway ? (Please answer through Messaging) !
Anyway by getting things mic'ed out ahead of time it will get you to first base in knowing what is wrong, then proceed from there.
After contacting the Mechanic, lets see what he has to say about the new front shaft.
Thanks for listening and Sorry 1qaz for the take over.
