    Thanks so much for the play-by-play, Steve! Wonderful stuff for a non-machinist like me.

    Thanks Rooster.
    Do you play with frames as well?

    Same process for the other side.

    Yep. I like that one as well.
    That is my job on the neck complete. The customer is going to splice a new backbone onto the remaining section.
    Time to remove this fixture and do a quick clean up around the mill. I don't like swarf underfoot.
    When I've got it clean, I will set up the next fixture for the next forging.

    Thanks for today's batch of photos. Steve.
    And Yes, I've been known to dabble with repairs to the most common issues seen on knuckle and pan frames. But nothing on the level you display.

    Thanks Tom. Keep up the good work.

    Hi Rob.
    Your young fella introduced himself to me at the Bulli AMCA meet last weekend.
    Solid young bloke and he held the conversation well. Good job dad.

    Next fixture clocked in to the datum and synced to the readout of the machine.
