Very nice bit of work, beats paying over 69 for a new one from the manufacturers.

Thanks Andy, it was a challenge, when I count the hours 69 is not much, but....it is our hobby

Nice work, probably more cost effective to buy a replacement, but so much more satisfying to make your own.

A great skill to have Anton - nice to see. I'm guessing the bearing will be the bronze as well or do you plan/ need to install a white metal or something similar??

Would also be interested to know what machine you used... purely as I'm looking to expand my knowledge and skills and feedback from those already in the know helps..

It could be made on a lathe with a vertical axis on the cross slide with a small rotary table attached would do it.
