This week I finally got to work on the swing arm hinge, itís going quite smoothly. Iím working on it in my Manufacturing Tech class so I only have about an hour each day(including setup & cleanup).

So far Iíve cut 4 pieces of 1.5Ē steel round stock to length in the lathe, and milled 4 flats and drilled the hole on each.

If all goes well I could be done spiral milling the hole that will slide over then be welded to the frame, cutting the slots, spiral milling(or boring) the hole for the bushing, and making the bushing by Wednesday next week.

Iíll post the blueprints later.
