If it was me, I'd just turn the end off and start again, putting up with the smaller height you would end up with, unless of course you really, really need the extra inch.

Still he has made no mistakes has never made anything.
Are you going to mark the centre line on the riser so that you can used the angle measure on the side of the head

It was all going so well and looked great.  Better luck next time.  What was the problem? Thanks for the posts as it is a project I have considered for my 626 but chickened out of for now, my excuse is I think I would need a step for belt changes LOL

John,
In stead of making a pocket for the nut recess, I machine a slot right across..... :Doh:


Fortunately it isnt too deep....I pressed on realising the error. I'll use some metal filler to give the efect of a pocket...( I'll bodge with some stuff to make it look good.... :lol:)...

I s'pose it could be welded and I remachine it but there's nowhere round here that could do it... :dremel:

Anyways when its all painted nice who will know??

Just completed the second pocket and its looking pretty good.... Coffee time.. :coffee:

Looks OK to me and it's a solid block so you wont break thru.

Go for it.

If you were closer I'd weld it for you.
Anyone else having a go at one of these I have about 8' of 6" bar and 12' of 5" bar I'll sell cheap but don't ask me to pack and ship it.

Collection only.

John,
If I were closer I'd be asking a favour....being the gent you  are, thanks any way... :beer:

So I pressed on with the job regardless of my major faux pas....( I think thats french for fook up.. Or summat like ) any way it all ended good....apart from adding a bit of cosmetic repair( filling up where I made the error..) its good to go....
I'm glad this isnt a paying job because of the length of time its taken....I think I underestimated just how much time it had taken....
Well here's some more photos, hope you like... :D

No use beating yourself up you have still done good!
Why not make a little shelf or holder that bolts in your faux pas? Just might work!

Hi John,

1st... We all make mistakes. I have made quite a few on the snowblower engine swap, so don't sweet it.

2nd, it looks primarily cosmetic to me. IF I was in your shoes... Yes, being a perfectionist might make it hard to let it go... What I would do. Machine up a couple of plugs that would fit inside that would sit a bit proud. JB weld em in (I can't weld!!) then take some light cuts on the lathe to true them up. A fresh coat of paint... no one will know the difference!

 :update:  Its done!   :update:

I found a tin of that Isopon Metallic filler on a shelf....(forgot I had, it was disguised by some blue paint on its exterior...)
So after some rubbing,filling some more filling and rubbing I ended up with this.......

Looking good! All that fuss about nothing, well done. Are you able to cancel the order for the new piece of metal?

After another full days graft at it....here it is all finished with a coat of paint....

I couldn't get an exact match....so went for what I thought was closest...

Doesnt look too bad, better than leaving it 'naked' to have the elements attack it....

Overall I have around 420mm (16") between spindle and table with Z wound down....

John,
Out of interest what was the spigot dimension on yours, read back thru but didn't spot it.

John,
I made it 3.307 inches, or probably 84mm. i think there may be room for skimming another couple of thou off...now its all mounted it feels a bit tight...

The pcd for the bolts is 116 mm....I determined that from various measurments but to confirm it, made a cardboard template to fit over the machines spigot after adding a film of grease and pressing against the face....if you know what I mean....

looks like it came out well in the end. :thumbup:

i guess the next project will be a longer screw for the knee??
