Stuff happens Bob. All you can do is regroup and press on. Is the blank steel or brass?

Steel Bill.  I like to torture myself. 

I'm just cleaning the shop now.  I'm about to put some Heavy Metal on the stereo and get "my head back in the game".

Well Bob, brass could have grabbed too with the same result. Heavy metal huh? That should clear the cobwebs out  :Lol:

Even if it was plastic, it would have been a screwed part Bill.  The flanks were finished  and I was begining to rough out the .281 base circle.  I didn't go far enough back in Y when I went to index 5 degrees causing the crash.  I let my concentration slip.

The good news is that I only knocked the tram out .002.  I took the time to go over the gibs and tighten them up.  Now I just have to make sure that the collets didn't get hurt.

Wow, sorry about that Bob.   :(
I can certainly sympathize with this sort of set back.  Glad it wasn't any more serious!

Thanks Kim.  It's just a bump in the road.

Some progress:

The cam and gear are finished and installed.  I need to make a proper bolt for it; but for now, I have a socket head screw in there for testing purposes.

The rod for the exhaust valve is done.  I just need to make a jam nut for it. 

The fuel line and pickup tube are installed. 

I need to drill and tap the flywheels.

The only real work left is figuring out the S&S ignition install.

Unfortunately, the next three days are shot.  Full workday tomorrow.  Saturday looks good for something that I have waited a long time for and it will chew up most of the day.  Sunday I have to work.  So, the next progress report most likely be until next weekend.  But, I am that much closer.  So close I can almost smell the fumes.

Bill, Dave, Don and Dave- Thank you very much and thanks for staying "tuned in".

Bill- I think I have a plan for the ignition; but, if it doesn't work I will be in touch.
