OK Here are the first pictures of semi finished parts.  This is some of the track plates.  They started life as a 20 foot stick of 3/8 by 1.5 hot roll.  Plus a little. The fingers are 1/4 wide.  Have not made much progress had the grand babies last week did not even open the shop. :old:

The beginnings of the drive wheel.  It is 6 inches diameter and .25 thick.

Todays attempt.  Only broke 2 1/8 inch end mills.  I really really don't like those little things.  They work great in the smaller machines, but in my Bridgeport I just cant feel what they are doing.  Had to get creative to hold it.  I don't have any ball end mills so stood it up on end.  Tomorrow I will have to scrounge around to find some half inch rod and some one eighth to make an axel and u bolts.
