    Watching & learning & enjoying. 
    Empathetic sympathy over the loss of the other build!

    The plan is that the machine will be on the bench, first week in June.

    Been visualizing the process & sequences of building the rear end for this car.

    There will be an output shaft with a u-joint yoke.
    This will pass through a bearing collar & seal, which will be bolted to the face of the side cover.

    My current research is dimensions for the yoke/shaft.
    Collar can then be built to fit it's dimensions.
    Mounting flange will build off of this.

    Only at that point, will I really know what size I need to machine the side cover face so it will properly take the the hub & show proper proportions & perspective.

    So, in spite of my excitement to see the center housing take shape, my first pieces need to be the shafts.

    I could see a #1 or 2 being used to bolt the side covers to the center section.

    Back when I was shopping for the rotary table & chuck, the 3 jaw models I looked at were all self centering.
    I chose a 4 jaw with independently adjustable jaws...just so I could hold odd shaped pieces for rotary milling.
    Had to "flip" two of the jaws for greater outside reach on the center section.

    Thanks for stopping in, everyone!
    Appreciate the comments.

    Can start moving some stuff in here now.
    After I get the machine in place, I'll go ahead & shelf around it down the left wall as well.

    Hung a drawer from an old rack mount system for tooling, bits etc for the machine.

    I've been devouring the two milling books for a couple of months now.
    Written by an old timer from way before CNC...talks about turning the cranks by hand...they assume no prior machining experience & spend time addressing which accessories are needed & which can be postponed for later.
    Well written & very informative for a machine shop noob like me.

    The rat rod book was a bday gift from my son, this year.
    Not a real big fan of the genre but there are some good ideas incorporated in several of them.

    It is exciting!
    Seems like I've been saving for this forever.
    Kind of an odd shaped little arrangement...kids are gone & the wife & I are in 900 sq ft.
    I've got a small music room where I jam with some friends plus the git shop...This is my last available corner...lol...I'm out of floor space...the rest of the house is her domain.

    As Y'all know, for quite some time, I've been saving my lunch money for a small benchtop milling machine.
    Well, I've got my dollars together & am ready to buy.

    Building a little cubbyhole area to set it up in & to do my builds...get them out of the clutter & busyness of the git shop.
    Going to do some shelves on the back walls this weekend.

    Drier/ regulator for my air system.

    Thanks, Bill.
    In my time on this board, I've noticed that you frequently offer quite a wealth of information on various subjects.
    Much appreciated...your willingness to share.
    Agreed on the subject of forgings & strength.
    On the quick change, just looking for different visual approaches to the parts I'm building.

    Quick change rear ends
    In the 1:1 world, does anyone make a machined billet quick change center section?
    Did a google & Winters, champs & the rest all seem to be cast items.
    I'm cutting billet style block & heads, in aluminum, for my coupe & have been thinking a machined housing for the irs quick change would blend right in, visually.

    Nice work!
    In this pic...do you use a circular saw blade for separating the part from the remainder of the bar stock?

    That's a nice motor collection.
