    One for the Captain

    Hi All

    Well not quite a ship's wheel, Captain!
    One for the Captain-captains-turret-wheel.jpg

    This is a turret handwheel I made last night for the ring roller I am currently building/working on.
    The 4 knobs are purchased items fitted with a internal M12 thread.

    I have been working on the ring roller, on and off for about a month but I keep getting side tracked doing other things. There is light at the end of the tunnel with only the rolls to make, 12mm bore broaching guide bush (to cut keyway in drive roller) and a base to bolt/clamp to either a bench or vice.

    I hope you like it Captain
