I still appreciate precision though...as in reloa*ing..

I don’t watch many videos but that one was cool .

 Keep in mind we wouldn’t of had any of that without the anvil.

My bad haz I just like to make everything as simple as possible .  Chuckle

No problem at all FD, feel free to correct/modify where you see fit.

If you have lathe, anvil, forge and some hand tools, you can build almost any iron or steel device. A gas welder and an electric arc welder are helpful also. I have a small forge built out of brick and cement, at the mountain house. I've used it to heat pieces of iron and bend them easily. Cool stuff!! Heartflowers
I am working with a fellow turner to make a simple rose engine lathe.
Check this beauty out:

Ours will not be that fancy, but dang the value add to a piece is intricate.
Some folks will ask why..as you can get cnc machines nowadays. To me the appeal is in doing it myself, not punching buttons and issuing software commands.
Also good going to sleep watching here

I like rivets too!
Lathe is the only machine that can replicate itself .

Got one of these things a few years back and was pleased by the accuracy available . Even trued a few small crank shafts on it .

Old Engine ? Cam Chest Bushings Unobtanium ? No real problem !

Fresh out of H/S I ran one of these fuckers for a maniac, ($4.00/hr) he was showing me "how to do it his way" flat out of course... the spring at head level popped out hit him square in the noodle and knocked him out cold for about 20 seconds. We`re all standing around looking at him on the floor when he pops up, grabs the spring wrestles it back in and continues on like nothing had happened. True story. He was the owner and he did the work of 4 people.
That was very interesting...Thanks...

I used to run jobs for my friend on his machines...mostly Heidelberg Press...

Heidelberg Press...that thing is amazing....

That ' s how it ' s done , You Apprentice You . Guild Style .

What a BONUS tho , having the Boss pull a boner like getting knocked out ! And having the dignity to get back up and carry on .

An example of why Harley - Davidson hit the skids after American Machine and Foundry took over .

Company Policy was Required Retirement at . . . 62 was it ? So all the Factory Experience was let go . Senior Journeymen . The Guys that knew " How It Is Done " , and They took Their little book of On the Job Production Secrets with Them . Stuff They taught the New Guys .

Man , the metal tempering went in the crapper . Frame Braze went to tzhit . Morale also . Did You know Harley Frames were made along Spring Steel lines ? The Brazing Compound was mixed in house and frames pressed together with Braze for Lubrication and into the Tempering Oven . That is Old School Craftsmanship , and just a few degrees off in the Ovens didn ' t get the job done .

Bikes were delivered to Dealerships with mis - matched Fat Bob Tanks . Different color painted parts .  More than one Transmission came with a wrench or socket inside . I made a few Sporty clutch fixes because the Ball Bearing in the Push-rod Assembly were missing . Fact is , I liked working on the old Iron Head Sportsters . British thinking .
