This swimming pool filter clamp is no longer available. Instead of spending a small fortune and retrofitting a new filtration system the customer brought me the broken part to make one. With the cost of making the CAD model and the CNC programming was rolled into the first part the customer liked the reduced cost of a second part and elected to have us make him a spare.
Machined bosses and starting the through holes.
Quick blow off with compressed air to check progress.
Chamfering the bosses.
Hemstitching with .500 ball end mill.
Finishing the hemstitch.
Outer perimeter cut to leave a very thin attachment.
Finished part easily snaps out of the remaining material.
After some minimal deburr, another job is finished for a happy customer.
