Abstract : Two shell are joined together by linear press fitting the cylindrical protrusion of one shell into the cylindrical recession of the mating shell. The two shells, so joined, are then finish machined as a unit and indexed as to relative angular orientation. When assembled, the press joint can be separated with a linear pull. When assembled by linear pressing of the two shells together again in their as-machined indexed orientation, the joint interface area will again form a continuous machined surface.
