Riser block for TAIG lathe

  1. Aluminum bar 1" x 2 1/2", shoddily hack sawed to length
  2. Located, center-punched, center-drilled, drilled, countersunk, deburred all holes (some threaded 1/4-20 to mount assembly to table bed from beneath the base plate).
  3. Did my best to file the ends to square them off, files did a great job
  4. Re-hack sawed using a Starrett blade with 18 teeth / inch. Just needed to remove a tiny strip to equalize earlier cut done with a shit hacksaw blade
  5. draw-file to finish with single cut mill bastard file
  6. I was just so surprised I got this far this fast
  7. once finished, install, rejoice!
