Main Gear

Threading on the lathe
Practiced turning threads on the lathe. I found that the cutters need to be stoned inorder to get a clean thread. I also found that the old timers were right about using lard as athreading lubricant. My first threads came out pretty well. I will be turning the axles next. The axles are being made long to accomodate the gar Aero wheels.
