mill cutting 007 body
what's left of the 60 lb block are these 6 lb blocks that yield 6 light bodies each
the first 18
5 blocks ready to go in the mill
the aluminum D1-6 spindle mount adapter I made for my small Cushman 6" 6 jaw run-tru chuck. The runout measured at 0.0001"
The first 30 bodies should be done this week. I will then start on the battery caps and knobs. The knurling tool on the lathe is still finicky. I should really plan a new way to make the knurl pattern.
Though I make no promises I see no reason the first lights will not be ready in April. And the second batch in May.
If you are interested in watching the mill make a 007 body (more interesting than any other part) then now is the time! This is directed at Msax and Dizzy and anybody else that wants to see it in person. Please e-mail me with questions and directions.
