In addition to my welding table for the repair project I also needed a lazy Susan to rotate the part I needed to weld. No I could have made a 450 mile round trip to our property and spend countless hours trying to remember where another of my fixtures was packed away or I could simply grab a couple of pieces of metal and an old bearing and make one
First I chucked up a round disk and trued up a small area for the bearing to be placed and a relief so that the inner race would not rub then I turned a short stub shaft to fit the inner race. then tacked that to anopther round disk. Since this was most probably only going to be a 1 time use tool I only did the bare minimum of work on it as I needed to get started on the repair as soon as possible.
The shaft is welded and ready for machining
not shown but the housing was also welded up on the rotator
Fully repaired and assembled with a protection sleeve for the splines
