Its been a while since i posted any work on my blog, thats because i’m in the middle of a shed load of small parts, then lightning strike knocked out my broadband connection for 5 days and then it was xmas! So for any titanium starved addicts who get their fix from my blog i’m sorry there hasn’t been any new pics recently! From what i can gather, from people who shall remain nameless (you know i’m talking about you Ben!!), the sale of Kleenex has drastically fallen.

I’ve just recently had to buy a new drill sharpening machine as my old one was dead, so i tried it out on the drills for these spindles, man its ace! It cost an absolute fortune but what it saves in time and effort not to mention anxiety its got to be worth it! I used to get a bit up tight when coming to bore big spindles like this that have to be drilled all from one end, its very easy for the drill to wander particularly if it gets a bit too hot down there, but with the drill angles right and it nice and sharp they sailed down in a straight line! There is still several hours of fun in boring...
