The Rings - Final Phase
- More Dust and Fini
Well, all good things
come to an end. After thinking on the wheels, track, height and such, I made
First, I made the groove
in the Upper and Bottom Ring deeper. Then, with a smaller bit, I cut an additional,
narrow groove at the bottom of the exisiting groove so the wheels would track
alot betterer. This small groove is only a 1/6" deep and really firmed
up the tracking Big Time.
Then, I rounded the Bottom
Rings edges and fastened the carriage bolts in their places.
Here are the images to
The smaller groove bit
ready to choke up my lungs with more dust.
I found, that this combination of washers kept the wheels tracking much better.
A really small, pointed long nose pliers made this task alot easier.
Btw, when you have two
things aligned with each other and screwed down, pop a couple "X's"
so if you take them apart, you know how to orient them again if you decide
to do more work on them.
The finished product.
I did not think of where I could store these suckers. At 8', they get a bit
unwieldly to handle.
When assembled, the stack
came down to 5 3/8" thick. That will leave a minimum of 5/8" drip
ledge from The Domer. Should be adequate.
I hope no well meaning
bugs do not meet their demise as I rotate the wheels in their direction.
The place of Torture.
Ready for the next victim.
Folding tables make nice
places to plop tools when they are resting between victims.
The ones that did the
Devine Inspiration. Every
shop should have at least one.
And, The Dust. Always,
The Dust. Amazing I did not blow up the house during this process.
