Manufacturing guy-at-large.

From February, 2010:

What I wrote about this part then:

This is part of a drawbar for my Steinel horizontal mill.  I decided to make it in two pieces - a 3/8" rod, threaded on one end, which slips into a cap that was turned from 1" rod.  This is that cap.  It took a few steps to make - little while in the lathe, a few minutes in the mill, little while back in the lathe.  It's not quite finished - I gotta TIG the two parts together tomorrow - but jeez, I'm finally close to getting this machine set up.
