You're a pair of sick bastards :twisted: There was no delugging involved just a bit of anal intrusion and injection of radioactive material.

Lucky the two of you bear no resemblence to the fronts of your motorcycles.........or maybe you do :run:

Got to admit, I thought there would have been a whole load of Holt tank inspired renovation/ tart up threads going on. Is everyone keeping it under hat for a big reveal later in the year?

In fairness you only ordered yours about 6 months ago.

I don't think that many have been delivered yet, I know Whitey got the first and then me but I don't know if any others are out there yet.

Not complaining, I'm expecting to be near the back of the queue. Hoping for end of May/ June time. Just thought there would have been a whole bunch of excited people posting plans of their Holt inspired renovations/ tart ups.

all boarded out ready for all the junk to be stashed. Next job finish the ceiling filling and painting and then grind the ridges in the floor for floor tiles to go down.

I think I have to stretch myself a little more, I am getting to the point of boring. All I talk to my friends about is bloody Brembo calipers and brake brackets, so I think I need to put a stop to it all... This, is maybe my last step...

Started off with a ten year old version of AutoCAD:
Image

Which gave me the co-ordinates to run to on the Digital Read Out (DRO) on the milling machine. A printout and some scissors gives me a shape to cut out of my bit of plate:
Image

Then, to bolt my bit of plate to the table and start cutting out. Some drilling, boring and cutting of big radii:
Image

Note the parallels... As with most stuff that has any metal in it, parallels are quite a price, but a set of secondhand bearings (6204RS) do the job admirably. Anyway, I got it on the rotary milling table:
Image

Cut the bore for the axle spacer and the radius:
Image

Then a bit of admiration as I moved the bracket on the rotary table:
Image

Then cut the radius for the torque stub:
Image

Then when all the radii were cut, a bit more admiration against the cutout:
Image

Then a trial fit:
Image

And a new design of stub to work with Metmachix and steel swing arms (which I actually made for DaveH but was too late):
Image Image

And then a photo in the middle of the floor:
Image

Don't ask me to make another, it took ages, but I enjoyed every minute of it. CNC is fine, you just tell the cutter where to go then make the tea. For this I needed to show the cutter where to go, find ways of doing stuff etc. Very rewarding...

Very rewarding Pash, unless you have to make a living doing it. I still like knocking out one offs on the mill or lathe though. :yup:
