Sneak Preview for the F650 USD Fork Conversion Group

I got a drawing from WayneC a couple of weeks ago. The drawing was for an ignition switch holder to convert the F650 to USD forks. It took me a while to switch around the mill and the lathe and to get the sludge upstairs in thinking mode again.

Here is the sequence to date:

Fire up the foundry and cast the ingot. This time I did the melt in the mold since this would be a larger than normal melt;

Working the ingot to the basic shape;

Starting the finish rough cuts to hold the cylinder;

I need to bore out the cylinder hole, and drill and thread the holes.

Then I will send it to WayneC for his critique. If he says go, I will make them available.
