Machining

John Brix Propeller Shafts

  • Two 12" diameter 10 ton shafts
  • 52'-9" long
  • Time Frame: Spring 2014

We installed three bronze liners on each of the shafts. The liners were machined and then shrunk fit onto the shaft. Once the liners were installed, the 52'-9" shafts were then put into our Craven lathe for final machining. The shafts were then trucked next door to Point Hope Maritime to be installed into the tug.
