So I thought I'd throw up a quick update before I disappear for new year I've been finishing off the legs today, as the metal rod for the attachment arrived a few days ago.
After the weekend I should be powering ahead with the frame as I now have a time restraint on the use of the workshop, but I'll explain that one at the end
Righty, today saw the lathe coming out to play, everyone, meet the little lathe...
half a leg base and the bar to fit into it
The best part of using a lathe, it makes finishes like this take about 30 seconds
and add the little feet
I'll be finishing the bars next week
The reason why I need to stop faffing about; My Dad (proud owner of this workshop) is building a 4 inch scale traction engine, he hasn't been able to carry on with it as he's been waiting for a casting...
The cylinder block, so he needs me to get off the milling machine and clean all the aluminium off it so he can start work on this :P
Happy New Year !
