Stephen is in the dark north… he’ll have waist deep snow :P 

That's why I need a ground clearance heavyweight to bash through the snowdrifts oh and I'm not exactly tall either lol regards Stephen

Bit of a long afternoon ahead 

Done some more chain drilling much easier than spending forever with a cutting disc and better for following a profile

the long afternoon part putting my radius construct on a diet in the mill regards Stephen

If I was doing this - that would be about as good as it would ever look…

…you on the other hand seem to be able to turn things out that look factory finish. 

I can’t wait to see how this is going to look.

Looking at your 80" your doing yourself an injustice

Time and patience with a little help from some gear you would be surprised what you could do regards Stephen

Started on its twin need to machine shaft on and then Mill it to the same thickness after that I will machine a couple of pins to knock into holes so I can Mill them together and achieve an identical profile regards Stephen

Doesn't look like a lot of progress but it's taken me ages to get to this point

Second one on a diet 

20210720_183857.thumb.jpg.88911c5028bb69f510a35d1cf73fa69b.jpg

shaft turned in lathe and then cut into two pins and radius arms pinned together

then put in Mill vice and started profiling

You can see its starting to take shape ( a long way to go) at least to a position where it can be finished off with flap wheels and discs going down the grades until I achieve the finish I want regards Stephen

Great stuff Stephen , they look to be a pretty accurate pair . 

You must have to run to the scrap yard with swarf once a week!

just out of interest , is that plate S355 or S275 ?  I suspect it won't matter with the level of fabrication going on , just love it :)

Scrap man is a happy bunny with my deposits at the moment lol

I would love to answer your question on the steel as there are no markings on it and sections were cut off a piece that's been laid in our works graveyard for a long time. I do know it has also been used for pressing dies in the big press at work so I would suspect it will be the S355 but the honest answer escapes me regards Stephen
