This is the first post about my work on my metal working lathe since April 28. If you would like to read that post, it's at this link.
I haven't done much at all with the lathe since the weather got warmer, I've been busy with other projects all summer. I finally got back to the main project that I was working on last spring on the lathe, the miniature railroad wheels that I've been making. These wheels aren't for my garden railroad, they're for a miniature railroad car that I've been making for one of my other projects.
In this episode of mini lathe amateur, I'll be showing how I'm drilling out the center hole in the wheels for the axles. The reason that I'm drilling them out a bit larger is to make the holes all the same size. That makes it easier to make the axles that these wheels will be fitted onto.
Thanks for stopping by to check out this post and video!
I hope you found it interesting!
