A busy week

I'v been busy this last week machining the lower front vent surround. Milled it to it's outside dimensions.


Just need to drill & mill out the internal part, then mill the 4 Degree angle on the back face.
Unfortunatly the Milling machine was then out of action for a day or so not wanting to waste any time, started machining up a Restraining Bolt on the lathe.


Then, after finding the part-off tool, parted off and tap an M10 thread in the rear face.


Also this week I've been filling and sanding plugs and other holes in R5's base (where I had had to cut all the way through it), and also covering screw heads.

Have also marked up some templates, for building the centre leg.
