I thought about documenting more on how I did it but my technique is probably
poor. I didn't really want to teach people how to do things wrong.
For lathe operating instructions youtube should have a lot better
videos than anything I can do. A video might still be useful with disclaimers
for in general showing how you can recreate missing pieces for old equipment
like this and for general entertainment. I think it is kind of neat watching
the metal be removed especially when you get the long curly fry type shavings.
I am planning to add more to the page with more description of how I
made the parts and dimensions to help anybody who needed to make the part
for there plotter.
With this information you think the video is still a good idea? I have one
more part to make so can try something next year.
