Re: Beddin Pillar Makin Day. . .

Makenz H/D parts tonight. Chain adjuster hubs. Cutting little engagement splines suck. Takes too damn long on this machine.

Tis ok, every little hum of the tool is kinda like a cash register dingin.

Thanks fer the kind words gents.

have a great night.

Chad


Chain adjuster. Black one is a factory original. Pretty sure I got it right. 39 more to go!

Re: Beddin Pillar Makin Day. . .

Yes.

To keep bills paid I manufacture the bulk of the machined parts for "Competition Distributing" a vintage (1905-1920) Harley Davidson restoration business. I also operate out of the owner's building. (for now, till the shop gets put up next summer)

It's an interesting endeavor that keeps me on my toes. A 1909 atmospheric engine cylinder is worth about 25K if it's in serviceable condition. Considering there's only a handful in existence that still work you gotta get it right the first time, can't run down to Napa for a replacement.

Cool stuff. Almost as much fun as guns. Almost. . .

Lonnie Isam, the owner is about as cool as they come. He's also the owner of the first H/D motorcycle ever made. It's out on the showroom floor on the museum side of the shop. Raced a top fuel bike for about 25 years. "The Flying Banana"

Back to gun stuff. This evening has turned into "Estucheon Fest"! I had a bag of these bastages somewhere but I can't find em so I decided to whip up a batch.

Another little silly part I like making.

Gnite, I'm outa here!

Chad
