And drilled…


Drilling the compression plate using the rotary table. The bottom of the barrel isn’t round, but rather a series of flats like an octogon. No idea why, that information Sir Roy probably took to his grave.

Anyway, the outside edge will be milled out to a round profile using the rotary table. It’s been a bit of a pain, taking longer than anticipated. But soon it’ll be all done and ready to transfer the hole markings to the cases.

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
