Pete,

We are working on a project now that will be used to check the torque of some super bearings.

In order to do this it requires such things as a very accurate air bearing rotary table, special drives, a granite base, and very a accurate encoder for the slow speed table rotation.

This stuff is not cheap and would not be cost effective for even the most expensive hub sets.

I wonder if the hand adjustment was to tighten or loosen 'cause the machine couldn't be trained to do it right? I thought a while back we decided they were tight for the wheel builders benefit and you were expected to know enough to adjust them before use?
