 Your right Jo

Let this be a lesson to all     Check your castings before you start to machine them.

Milled the offending boo boo off the back, and I'm waiting for aluminum bar stock to splice in a repair.   

Nothing more tonight..

Mounted up the repair patch last night with a screw and some JB.   It needs to be faced back now and it'll be good as new.

Onward.   I still need a key, a keyway in the gear, and retaining nut, and some screws to put it all together.

I'll take up stud making after the show...

It'd be nice to have the block painted by Saturday...but I'm not feeling it...I'm thinking Smoke Gray...
