    couple more bits

    heres a couple more bits ive made recently.

    first is a tapping guide for tapping cooling pipes and need them tapping cock on straight.
    its for a central machine coolant system im building for shop.
    its made out of 25mm rd stock which i turned down 2/3rd off to leave lip at bottom to hold in place.
    second i clearanced drilled all way through for 1/4bsp.
    next i bored out large bottom section to be snug fit over tubing im using for system.

    next up is holder for some 150mmdia x 25mm thick ally i need to turn in lathe.
    its made from 25mm rd stock with one end turned down to 17mm.
    then i tapped small end m12 and made 2 spacers to be snug sliding fit on holder so work would be held solidly in holder.
