Rotary table extension

I can see a job coming up shortly which is going to be to big to fit on my six inch rotary table. 

A quick look on Ebay finds me a large vehicle disk brake which will fit on the rotary table centrally once I have made an adaptor. With a bit of drilling it will get the job done.

The existing adaptor that fits in the centre of the rotary table and is used to fit a chuck on is to small for the brake disk bore and needs another adaptor on top of it to fit the large bore in the brake disk. This is a simple job to do but gives me a chance to try out my new camera – proving that I’ll never make a living behind a lens. Good job I’m retired then what?

I do it here:

Car easy exit rest.

Lyn showed me a gadget the other day she had found online which makes it easier to get out of a car. Rather than buy one I dragged one of these old steel brackets out my scrap box and wrapped it round with a bit of insulation tape to save the paint work...........

hung it over her door catch...........

and bobs your uncle - job done.

With her creaky hips and all it makes it just that little easier to haul herself out of the car seat.
