NOT MUCH GOING ON TODAY
This is my workbench after I had almost finished tidying it. Really.
Then I thought about machining the ends of the cross slide ball screw.
So I mounted the collet chuck and checked the runout. 0 to o.01mm. Then I did a test cut in the ball screw. Hard hard hard. But it did cut. Then I chickened out and decided to finish it another day.
So, looking around the workshop for something else to do, I decided to pretty up the new CNC lathe apron.
Before (milled surface).
And I forgot to take a photo of the after, but it did look nice and smooth and shiny (look at the mirror finish behind the wheel).
Being retired is great!
