All right then: The dreaded gutting of the wheel halves has been.....Trying. Deep hole pocketing is a genuine Bee-yatch (Google it) and I knew this would be the real sucky part, but Dang. Anyway, they will be slower than hoped but that's how it goes sometimes- I've never done anything like these before so probs are not unexpected. Good news is my new method should eliminate hand-finishing these on the lathe so will save about as much time as has been spent trying to optimize these ops, ergo not a huge biggie in the end.

Pics as soon as these ops are proofed & running, ideally mid-week. SHEESH! Chris REC

So, after mush time spent/wasted- Spent, I should think- to gut these acceptably I have started 'Pre-Gut' ops. Basically, rough 1.5" outta the bottom & it'll make my face ops much easier. Also have the Lathe set up to finish the innermost bore. So, feeling pretty good, lots of metal flyin' & the long ones will be pre-gutted today! The shorter ones should be pre-gutted by next Wednesday, & I can start the final ops right after. Guess at wheel tubes being 100% done, by Christmas: That'll be YUGE! Then I can start on the centers, which, unlike the tubes, are right up my alley & will proceed nicely, though not real fast: At least you chaps will start to see the finished product minus the ano, starting around New year's or so. Cheers All, Chris REC

Couple pics showing Pre-Gut progress as of yesterday-

Thanks so much Mate. I guess a monkey could do these if he had as much time as I've had, though! (Cursethisplacenomonkeysmilie...)

I have ONE set unsold as of right this minute: The total sold has bounced between 77-79 all this time, so my guess of 80 sets total seems Spot-On. HURRY BEFORE THEY'RE DONE ONLY 3 MONTHS LEFT!!!! Not really. Chris REC
