Would like a 'real' one but cant afford/justify $1,500~ $2,000+ for rotary table ( hell, I'd like a good/large lathe, Bridgeport and a 5 axis CNC  :D)
 

Sounds like a Christmas wishlist. Did ur mill come from harbor freight too? I looked at one there, but I didn't know if it was worth messing with. Its been hit or miss with stuff I've bought from hf.

Thanks for the info. Yea never done machining before so I'd have no clue on limitations. Now I've gotta talk the wife into letting another tool in the garage to put next to welder, torches, grinders, and the couch (long story).

I've got a drill press thats been hiding under a drop cloth for almost a year now.  8) where there's a will, there's a way.

^^^Bahahaha^^^^

And I have at least 3 bikes that the wife doesn't know about....basket cases sure....but 3 bikes.
I get not knowing, but I can't for the life of me understand not trying. It's only metal it can be fixed. Man up and risk a mistake in exchange for a lesson.

Best 'toy' I picked up was DRO setups for the big mill and lathe.

got to do a little bit, wife just wanted me to stay out of her way while cooking  ;D
 Rocan was asking about polishing top yoke so I did some work on mine (and bottom yoke got some 'treatment'  ;))
 Heres what it looked like when I started

 back view showing parting  line, I drilled and tapped boss for steering damper

 Cut off steering lock and spent  a bunch of time with angle grinder then a lot of time with files and emery cloth

Heres the back side, almost finished

 Modified top yoke as well, cut of instrument mounts, can use handlebar holes with tube nuts for speedo/rev counterand possibly fit LED inside tube nut?

 Showing why you cant go dirctly from 240 grit to polishing, its shiny but all the scratches are visible (wifes friends husband was impressed, until he had it explained, ooh, shiny  ::))
 Its got to have a lot more going over with finer emery cloth before being polished

This is the 4th one so far, 2 Suzuki, 1 Yamaha, first '360'
 Lot of people may wonder why I jump around with parts and pieces so much?
 I'm working on whatever part I pick up, what I feel like doing or, have some time to 'play' with.
 Its all got to be done so doesnt matter where I am as long as it all comes together at the end.
 I know where stuff goes and what it does so I dont have to do multiple builds and fits
 I do all my bikes like this, (when I decide to work on them, ;))
 so, its not an 'all out' build for me, just a 'normal' one

Spokes arrived from Thailand (well, I got to pick them up from Post Office  ;))
 Flanged rim from eBay is going to take a lot of work, pretty corroded at base of flange.
Its fixable though.
Thinking of geting a drum brake instead of disc? (maybe both, mountings are same)
Still no title, guy says its in the mail so maybe next week?
 Called about front fender Wednesday, checked this morning, guy sold it to someone else  :(

Made a rather neat rev counter block off plug this morning.
 It can be fitted without removing worm drive from cam cover.
It's on the 'dyno bike' in pic but is going to a member here.
 Probably wont be making any more as I cant make them quick enough to be economically viable
Even though its a simple job, I'm not set up for production work, one off's always cost 'more'
