Moving another stalled project up the list next to the KZ.    The other project will help with this one (at some point) . Moved the lathe and bench across the garage so it's in my way and I'll have to finish restoring it.  New motor mounts and variable speed motor control is the plan.  Needing some Delrin sliders got me thinking.

Investing in good tools is always a win.

Still at it, just struggling to get some time in the shop.  Had the shovel out for a short ride the other day, gotta fix some stuff there too.  Mrs needed some help to keep her projects from turning out badly.  Had to change gears to her stuff for a few days.   All good.

Because tools:  I picked up a hydraulic crimp tool today.  I've been needing to make up some 6ga battery and starter cables.


You can see the "punch and hammer" on the left and the nice 8 ton (max) crimp on the new tool.

And the Delrin stock I ordered vs. the swingarm.    I think I gave it enough extra.

Nice, progress. That crimping tool would be nice to have.

I'm not trying to jack your thread with the band but i think i said i'd offer a better pic of the show or something to that effect so here's one I took last weekend. It was a fun show, a fireman's dance.




Looking forward to more pics of the project.
