Ducati F750 titanium rear axle

This is a LONG spindle, 355mm, 17mm diameter with 16×1.5 threads. Turning it wasn’t too bad, fought with the deflection a bit but got it nicely to size relatively easily, but drilling it was a swine. On a 17mm shaft I drill them 10mm, but over that length the long series drill struggles as it doesn’t have the rigidity needed for the size of cut its making, so its very easy for it to wander off course once its had a bit of swarf wrapped round it.
