I have a couple of weeks off work, still during lockdown so I’m hoping to get some time in the shed. One job I’ve been putting off is boring the big end of the conrod.
A lot of work has gone into it so far, mostly by Bob, so I don’t want to mess it up and have to start again. I’m using the Bridgeport as it has a power feed to the quill.
The rod is too big to turn on the lathe, so boring from the top is the best option. I’ve setup a test piece so I can check out the boring tools that came with the mill.
A good result would be to get the bearing pressed in before I have to start work again. Stay safe everyone 🙂
