It is not perfect, but it will do.,

Today I removed the support blocks (heated with a gas torch to soften the Loctite) cleaned up the sharp edges, shaped the flanges, and polished it.

Next on the list is to make and fit the main bearings.  Thank goodness they are made from gunmetal.  There are 6 of them, and each has 3 components to be shaped and fitted.


The stainless steel has a nice lustre, but it is difficult to machine.
