alloy kick post
At the martial arts class (Tang Soo Do, Bury centre) one of the very black belts kicked one of the kicking posts in half, so i’m mending it. the original was made from plastic drain pipe and extruded plastic, it was the extruded plastic piece that broke so i’m replacing it with thick wall alloy tube and a solid alloy base. Then we can kick away kick away kick away…….!
this is the largest serious bit of turning i’ve had to do in this lathe, its 8″ dia solid bar which i turned a flange on to take the tube which is now bolted to it. by the time i’d chewed it down to size you couldn’t see the lathe for turnings!
