pete, feel free to bore me with the details. how did rotating the handle in any way fix the relationship between the rotary table face / chuck and the edge of the head to the spindle centerline? edit: forgot to mention, it would be best if when you show something like this you put the same mini carbide drill in the collet at the exact same depth and not change to a longer shank and larger diameter end mill to show your relationship change. the tooling change makes it look like extremely different.
OH...................MY..................GOODNESS, GRACIUOS!!!!!!!!!! well tim, i'd have to say after all of the conversations on what "look" you were going for, i believe you have sucessfully achieved "IT". the quick change just looks so incredibly massive in there. beautious, maximus! the body, the stance, the wheel combo, the engine, the chassis. just stellar craftsmanship!!!!!!!!
love the frame tim. tubing looks to be the correct size and the placement of the uprights looks good too. how do you do it? correct size , placement and nothing is upside down. blasphemy i say. header flanges looks sweet too. are you doing zoomies like in the pic? or are you choosing to do something different?
obviously, it is a breath of fresh air to see someone not only use parts that aren't the norm for a build but, also create them from scratch. the donovan is not a copy of some model company's work but, rather you're artistic interpretation of an absolutely stellar feat of engineering in drag racing history. the wheels.......well, the wheels are the same artistic view. as i watch this piece of miniature machining history unfold, i am left wondering what your next creation will be for this maximum effort build. i can only imagine...................
