Just thought i'd share the making of a Super T 801 & 901 adapter and button machined from solid core aluminum. These pictures are no where inclusive of all the steps and leave out the hundreds of times i am checking dimensions and switching tools throughout the machining process, but it still gives you a feel for the in depth process that even a simple adapter takes here at Super-T. The first picture is of the finished 801, 901 and button as they came hot off the machine yesterday morning before even being polished. If any other manufacturer tries to tell you that gouges, deep machine marks, pitting, dents, ridges and blemishes are the result of being handmade or are artwork, this is simply not true as they are the result of incompetent machining including dull tools, mis-aligned tools, carelessness, lack of machining knowledge fundamentals, inferior equipment and an overall lack of any quality control as no competent machinist would ever let such inferior work leave their shop. I know I wouldn't! I hope you enjoy the pictures. Just one 801 adjustable airflow adapter takes around 4 hours to machine! Cutting the stock Turning, facing Knurling Drilling Checking the runout Ready to be threaded Threading And lastly, the BUFF!! Watch your hands and clothing around that bad boy!!! My dad made that buffer; he was quite the talented machinist! Someday i hope to have the skills he had....rest in peace dad.
