    Too right GB. Must take several minutes to do each cam. Volume production? A whole room full of those machines perhaps. Just like the Dark Satanic Mills.  Hope they are on a good cheap Leccy Tariff.

 We use inductive heaters to replace bearings in electric motors.

 There is a fine line between hot enough to slip onto a shaft, and smoking the grease out of the bearing.

 And of course the first thing you have to do as an apprentice is burn yourself with the damn thing.

No future in that... we will need all the electricity we can produce to put in our future electric vehicles...   ;) *smile*
