More Tailshaft


Today was the first day of my 2 weeks leave from work.

I took advantage of the time off by using my grandfather's lathe:

I machined the offcut from the tailshaft, to get a nice flat side to measure against:

Mounted the yoke in the chuck, and spun it up with the live center:

Started cutting:

More cutting (this took over an hour!):

So close:


Machined a lip to 46mm (ID of tailshaft pipe - offcut has been slipped over and put on the live center to test fit in this shot:

Cleaned up with file and sandpaper:

Sat in the tailshaft (with electrical tape for mockup, still need to measure and cut tailshaft to correct length)

Getting there :)
