Hi Bob. Long time no see!

However, can you put a name to your high temperature epoxy resin please? Probably others are asking the same question.

Regards

Those ports look a lot straighter than the old ones! And good job on the bore, Bob. I like seeing the pictures.  :thumbup: :beer:

Ifrii,
There is a file that controls the range of values for the machine parameters: eng.  I have downloaded this from the machine, edited it, and put it back.  This process allowed me to get my steps/mm right.  Unfortunately, my issue with low feeds is something else.

Thanks Neubert, Simon.  :beer: :beer:

Sorry to say there was no work on the lathe today. Worked on the bridge. Will have to do that tomorrow as well, unless it rains. Maybe I can get a little done in the evening.

Temps here were brutal again, but there's a night time thunderstorm right now, We need the water, so, no complaints..

Backyard Ballistics / Re: Archery, a new twist for me.

I had a shed buddy that was into diy archery. He made all sorts of interesting widgets.
I can recall
  • Wooden arrow lathes (wooden arrows taper to each end)
  • Trick, drop launchers that fall away from the arrow the moment it's launched so the fletches don't strike it.
  • String releases
  • Sights.
  • And more.
I was surprised how much application for the model engineer and their tools there is in the hobby...
