Progress Report #4

I have a substantial part of the machining done on two reels that I expect to deliver at the end of January.

The spool ends here have been tumbled and will brighten up with fine sanding. The end plates are straight off the mill and need coarse sanding, then tumbling and fine sanding.

I have occasional casualities when doing this work. Here is a front end plate that I destroyed late in the process. A momentary confusion of the Y and rotary axis handwheels made the lug lopsided. A day’s work ruined in a instant.
