so here’s Michael gas cutting out my bit of 40mm plate.it was not easy .
now to turn this into something sexy and shiny..
faced it off… then spent a while with a thin disc cutting off the outer rock-hard shell.the torch appears to have converted it into a diamond/steel hybrid.(again , no idea what steel it is , but I do know the swarf comes of turquoise.)
then hours of machining ,paring away the outer side and starting the recess for the wheel flange to locate on ..
bored a 32mm hole down the middle and finished roughing out the dimensions.
tomorrow the other side,, oh joy 😉
