One 310-8 left today, Steve's 312-8 is getting picked up tomorrow and it's time to do a few other little things and get some new things in the store. I've been putting things together for the start of the Mail in Restoration Services for awhile. I'll get in more detail later in the Store Section but the 1" axle hubs have the tooling done to restore them in the lathe. Hoping to have the setups for the brake drum, input pulley and 1 1/8" axles done by Jan 1. :thumb1

With parts getting harder to find and eventually even harder this type of program should do a lot of good for peeps. :smile2

One of the brake drum types has lathe tooling done, the one with the 2 flat spots on the drum. :thumb1

There are still 2 left to do I think, the 1" keyed bolt on and the older 3/4" keyed.

Don't care much for turning cast iron though, it sure makes a mess lol. :tounge2

The tooling for turning the older 3/4" shaft brake drums is ready. Since these transmission parts are so hard to find I decided to make a shaft from scratch to hold them from a piece of 3/4 cold rolled.

The finish on these old drums were pretty rough so it takes a little more time to get them smoothed up, but they can be made nice. :thumb1
