I kept for getting to take pictures here are the ones I rembered. After turning the step and od. I parted it off then drilled the center to use a boring bar to get finished I’d.
Then I turned a mandrell to chuck in a super spacer. Threaded the arbor to fit a nut I had. Could’nt Get it to fit. Left hand threaded nut. Oh well turn down to 1 inch and start again.
Mounted in the super spacer on the mill l tried using a gear cutter, all I got was a lot of noise, so turn the spacer the other way and used a 3/16 end Mill and it worked great. The green stuff on the threads is scotch Brite pad did’nt help it fit a left handed nut
Thanks Ron C0D8B6C8-7DC7-4598-9B7F-4BF1AF954CA1.jpeg
