          Not milling. Just very educated turning. The work was always held and turned by the chuck or a fixture in the chuck. "Milling in the lathe" would entail holding the work in a vise or other fixturing on the tool post or with the aid of a vertical travel slide and turning the cutter with the headstock. No signs of that here. Just a well thought out sequence of operations.....


          And I have to wonder how much time was spent coming up with all the ideas and sequence.

          In particular I really like the use of a tapered arbor for the work holding in the last few operations.

          Thanks for posting the link Ringo. That was a very entertaining and educational video. I'm going to look up the rest of the vids on this build.

            I don't think he owns a mill. I've only ever seen him make parts on a lathe. Get your scotch out and fire up this one https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IEGmD_aV3w

              I clicked on the link and got a 10 minute add video on a new glue that hardens with ultra-violet light. Is that what I was supposed to see?

                    Those are beautiful connecting rods. The connecting rods I make are much simpler, and since no one ever sees them, they are not pieces of art. I admire people who take the time to make such beautiful pieces, but the only important parts of a con rod to me are the bore diameters in each end, the center to center distance, and the width. I do use a fixture plate to mount the con-rod to for reducing the width except for an extended boss on each side of the big end.---Brian

                      The thing I love about videos like that is, there is always some cool setup that I would never have thought of.

                        He made quite a few of those rods, must be a V12 or something he is working on. He has the skill, thats for sure.

                          Does anyone know the name of the music in that UV glue commercial video? Normally I hate music in videos, but I like that, and it's not competing with any speech, since the message appears in text.
