Don't you need a Dia Grinder for the Alyn castings :LittleDevil:

You will have to explain your attempt at humour Jason. I have never heard of "Dia" Grinders and neither has Mr Google  :headscratch:

Well….

This I think is the “ mother “ of them all ! Weighing in at a staggering 20 Kg and 15” in diameter.

Finally arrived the fruits of Jason’s labours last year. I now have to find a lathe to machine it on.

Cheers Graham.

That looks a nice crisp casting. Cover it up quick before you start an elephant stampeed :pinkelephant:

No excuses for not finishing off the Bryston now :LittleDevil: Did the Yoke and caps get cast at the same time?

Other than the fact that the rest should arrive in about 28 days, no, no excuse whatsoever Jason. ( yoke went off today ) Thanks again, the crispness is entirely due to your excellent work, nothing more.  :ThumbsUp:

Cheers Graham.

That got someone's interest  :pinkelephant:  He will be complaining about wanting more castings next  :ShakeHead: We had no end of problems when he found I had been using some of his empty casting boxes for things other than castings  :facepalm:

Its only 15" in diameter that's smaller than Big C's faceplate, that should be easily turnable on your face plate Graham  ::)

Loads of castings here at present Jo.  ;)

Sadly the LeBlonde doesn’t have a “ gap “ I’m stuck at 14” maximum with my machine. Perhaps you’d like to machine it for me?   :)

Cheers Graham
