    Found an old spanner surplus to requirements.
    Managed to cut it out at the weekend.
    Next step is to cut slots for the ring to engage in.

    Meanwhile... the first lift. I moved this winch 2mths ago and have been tripping over it ever since.

    today it got moved. Only complaint is the hoist pendant is heavy. Not:laughing:

    Looks like I need to get a mag to pickup stuff like this.

    clamped in the vice gets it picked up but not very pretty.

    Spanner on the mill at 30*. 12mm ripper end mill. Really like these, Removes material in no time. Not bothered about finish.

    No power feed; that gave my wrists a good physio workout:sheep:

    Blend the ends and weld up. (That will be interesting)

    be careful what you post online, facebook etc. insurance companies do a lot of research on social media when faced with a personal injury claim, that is from personal experience not the TV programs, also claim for the hoist as part of the claim!

    Noted.
    Im not a number, and Im not going to sit on my **** watching my whole upper body wasting away. I’m in desperate need of professional physiotherapy.
    Luckily :rolleyes: I’ve had enough in the past to make a start. And one of those is keeping yourself occupied. Im not doing much, the stuff you see here has either been done by someone else or taken me hours to do the menial of tasks. BUT I’m feeling better for it, and believe me my head needs it.

    So my son cleaned this up as I cant hold a grinder

    The pixies have been in again.

    Looks like 50amp DC with 968. (Who knows I wasn't there.)
    The upright Galv tube has been welded either side and at the rear, just enough to hold a chuck but not enough to try and pick the lathe up if the wrong button was pressed.

    Held in the jaws, with the slack taken up.

    once loose, you could see it was out of balance.
