    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.

   Swarfy.

 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.
