6th Jan 2019 - Secured the sole plate to the mill table and adjusted the mill head to 60 degrees. Having marked out the centre of the crankshaft, I milled down the bearing supports. The two bearing caps are supplied as a single casting, so it made sense to finish these as a pair, and then saw them apart.
5th Jan 2019 - Cleaned up castings which are generally OK. Milled the top and base of the stand to size. Milled the base of the sole plate to flat and marked out and drilled the four corner holes. Marked those holes in the base and drilled and tapped the stand.
21st Dec 2018 - Ordered the raw materials from Hemmingway.
