we have received the sample castings for the Axel boxes...





seen here with a 4 inch Axel box...



and the front wheel castings arrived on Thursday...



there's a lot to do on these so they have gone straight onto the lathe...

more photos of the foden wheels...

the finished fronts...



and the rear castings...

.

these are having the first face/half machined now. they take about 40 minutes each...



and the brake drum brackets are on one of the mills, only 240 of these to make...



these will go in the inside of the wheel rims before the tyres go on...

the good news is that the rear wheels have gone off for vulcanizing.

some photos of them on the mills...

cutting the "flats" for the brake drum brackets...



and then onto the 4th axis machine to drill the mounting holes...







and with the brackets mounted in place...



more good news is that we have the front cradle castings and the stub axles !!!
