MITSUI SEIKI Craftsmanship

Today my 2 Boeing techs there attending amy class finished the first part. Biax power scraping the test part. Here are the results. Oh the Taiwanese purchased over 50 Biax Power scrapers and now powerscrape and the majority of parts they used to handscrape. Many will powerscrape and if they want to use the old "signature" style of handscraping they handscrape the last couple of passes.
Also I have rebuilt several Japanese Kitimera Maching Centers and the handscraping on iron and Turcite sucked. Just because it's Japanese doesn't mean it's perfection.

A bit to much bluing, I'll show more pictures tomorrow. These guys just learned to power scrape on Monday. They will be scoop handscraping tomorrow on the test part. Then I will be teaching them how to rescrape this Taiwanese surface Grinder. When they return back to their plant in Portland. They will be scraping a Gleason Gear tester.

Just an anecdote that may or may not be true. Years ago, a number of Japanese industrialists were taking a tour of the Moore Special Tool works and were immediately greeted by one of those gorgeous half-moon hand scraped surface plates in the lobby, that were famously portrayed in the book "Foundations in Mechanical Accuracy by Wayne Moore". They were so taken with the craftsmanship and beauty of the work and facility, that they immediately made an offer to purchase the company. This offer was positively received by the Moore family, and negotiations started. Apparently news of this got to some bigwigs in the U.S Government, and all negotiations were canceled due to "national interest". Fun story if true.
