  • I'd be interested in seeing pictures of that CNC lathe, looks very nice.

    • Thanks! Here's some pictures and videos. There are some differences as what I have now is the 3rd prototype and some pictures and video are of the 2nd prototype and 3rd prototypes.

          • Finished my Cessna 180 wing adjustment nuts for a friend. These were the parts that grew made from 2024. His 180 is an experimental home built copy of a C180 called the Cyclone. I think he is the only person to ever finish one of their kits.

            • RB, are these for tightening the wing spars to the fuselage? Jim

                Don't know friend sent the drawings, he made the old ones, wanted new ones. Think they are for adjusting the wing incidence. 2 per wing.

                • 80% material removal, 30 of these would have been a very long and boring job with a manual lathe.
                  2 1/4" round 6061 4 1/2" long with a .197" hole thru, the small end dia. is .472" +.0000 -.0008 and the undercut is .394".
                  The large end is 2.205"

                  • Bented I think you've left that slightly longer than is traditional for a toilet roll holder

                    • When I first saw the customers drawings a very expensive door stop came to mind.
                      No idea what they do in use.
                      The next op is to face the flange to .079" (2 mm) then hard anodize.

                      • I machined some vintage switch plates to work with GFI receptacles and round telephone jacks. The mounting screw holes for the 1-Gang duplex receptacle had to be drilled in the new location to work with the GFI. I had to drill and tap the steel ring 6-32 behind the telephone cover for it to work. There are probably at least 20 more of these to do.

                        • Briuz, this is amazing! Excellent workmanship and design. Not to mention the resultant work it does.

                          I'd love to have one of these.
