.05" Of Wear

This shaft had roughly .05" of stuffing box wear and was deemed "scrap metal" by the shafting shop. This owner was using Teflon impregnated natural flax and thought when the advertising said "drips less" that it meant it was supposed to be "dripless". This was an expensive mistake you should aim to not repeat.
