First roller done but it’s got a .002” taper so tomorrow’s task is lathe leveling.
Re-learning the lathe after 15 years without one.
I built a 260 pound anvil from some scrap steel plate. The top plate was hardened in superquench and the horn was CNC milled on my Bridgeport Series II.
I built a coal forge from the remnants of an old Burnham oil furnace and a bunch of other junk I found at the town dump.
The latest episode in the homemade welder series wherein I complete an enclosure for the #ratwelder so I can store it outside without having to put a tarp over it.
Finished the body for the #ratwelder! The louvers look too nice though, debating whether to shoot them in red primer or just let them age naturally outside.
