I heard the spindle slow down a bit and looked down the workshop to see a load of smoke, thought it was something serious but thankfully it was just the bearings internals on the tool holder
I was milling a part for the footpegs I am making. I took a peg off yesterday and measured it up and sadly the alu I had made the peg from wasn't long enough so I had to come up with a new design, it is now a 2 part peg
I milled the back of the peg and put a key on it and also milled the angle at the bottom and the step at the top then bored and tapped 2x M6 holes.

I then found another bit of alu and proceeded to mill it away, the bit that goes against the footpeg.

I still have to machine the lugs on the back to shape, they need to be like this.

It has been a lot of work so far but I think I am just going to finish this one then test it out to see if it fits and how it feels. If it is good I think I will get some 50mm square aluminium and make them one piece. A 4th axis would have made things a lot simpler but I don't have one so...
I had thought about that but really want to make it a 1 piece so will finish this one and if it works out I will make a couple of new ones up from a single piece, it will also reduce the amount of work required by quite a bit.Nice to see I'm not alone!
Now that you have then two part what about making them adjustable as well?
What was it before it came out the other end?Photographing food you need a stark background.
A chef once told me the huge white plate they use with just a tiny serving of food in the corner is just a frame, for the food: that is the art.
Anyway hashtag heros and facetubers want you to like or plus one the food they ate or made.
It all looks the same when it comes out the other end but they'll never show a photo of that.
