Titanium prosthetic leg joint

Well here’s a new one for me, a part for a prosthetic leg. My customer is designing his own running blade so this piece is part of his design. It was fun to make, i like drilling holes and cutting grooves and the like, which are to allow the glue to run. It will have a carbon fibre tube glued over the holey bit.

I wonder what parts to make next week will bring! I think this one wins my competition for the most ‘not like a part for a motorcycle’!
