During the fabrication of many new components the welding process will always cause warping and distortion throughout the component even if a jig is used. This can cause considerable misalignment of any pin bores within the component. The best way to overcome this problem is to fabricate the component keeping the pin bore diameters undersize by 5mm-10mm depending on the amount of distortion due to weld. After the component has cooled down or subsequently been sent for stress relieving, the pin bores can then be line bored true after setting up to the datum point.
