Before and after taper


Cutting the taper


Parting off the square stock


To cut the forming tool, I used a 5mm dremmel stone - sold for sharpening chain saw blades - worked perfectly providing a nice curved cut out



Nearly there - not enough weekend days in a week!

Thought I'd share my build.

Squaring the stock


Cutting out the excess using a scroll saw - saw this on clickspring (youtube) and it works really well.


Centering the rotary table with my new toy -works great


Struggled with clamping this on my small roatary table. I used a woodworking router bit for the roundover and it worked well


Working my way round the edges


PCD was easy with the DRO


Looks good!


I built a live centre for my boring head. 2 quid bearing from ebay, then made an insert to hold the centres from my tailstock live centre. Used a dti to give me 1mm of offset at the tail end.

Given that flash will stop working in 2020 for all browsers, much of the older content, will become unavailable. Is there a another way of accessing the digital back issues ? how is this going to work once flash is disabled

I see Neil's comment above - please explain

Is there a material list anywhere, or do I need to work through all the components to work out what is needed ?

I plan to start this and don't want to have to keep making trips to the metal monger.
