Not even sure why I'm posting here. This will get lost in all the OT
BS. Posted back in 2010 on my turret indexing problems with my
Hyundai HIT-18S lathe. Seems the splined shaft/flange was worn out -
way too much slop. Ran for a while by sticking shims in the splines.
Finally spent the 2 grand and bought the part. WOW, no more wiggley
Learned something, the turret is not keyed or fixed to the splined
flange (hub) in the middle at all. It has a male/female cone fiction
coupling. I guess that's supposed to slip when there's a crash.
