Yeah, I see that now. I was replying to the first page info, and I see now that there are four pages :)

Nice looking build! I wish I had the machines you do! So jealous!

Charles.
Thanks for the support. Been a long road so far, I'm hoping to get it finished in the next 6 months.

Love that damper rod set up.  One of the cleanest/best integrated set ups I have seen!

Thanks.

It took a bit of working out, I'm quite pleased with it. I didn't want something that stuck out in front too much, I wanted to keep it as tight as I could.

Things have been slow lately, managed to get some bits done today and started to pull the dents out of the tank.









Not the perfect job, but a lot better than it was.

I needed to cope some tube to make support struts. Not having a 22mm hole saw, plus in my experience hole saws donít cut very neat.

Luckily my milling machine has a tilting head, although it is not that rigid when tilted, but it did the job.
