Just a weekly update. My two side panels are cut out and ready for the holes to be drilled and tapped along the edges. Grabbed a picture while the mill was cutting out the two pieces, the last of five passes. As you can see, I took the small piece, rotated it 90 degrees counterclockwise and moved into the space above the bigger piece. This allowed a better fit of the two sides onto one piece of 5/16" plate that I have. I cut the two out with a 1/2" EM, after drilling the holes and finishing them (three get tapped and three get reamed to final size). This got me thinking about using ball bearings in those three reamed holes instead of trickling oil from a cup mounted above the bearings. I did that on my flame eater and I thought it worked out well. That .250" hole is the size of the shaft for the two bearings I used last time, and they only needed a .375" hole. There's tons of room to put ball bearings in all three holes. Does anyone have feedback on that idea?
