    That looks good Tom now you can start your own build log if you rebuild this one.
    Ps: The next set pictures from my beavermill will come soon.
    Kind regards,
    Andre

    Hello here we are again.
    After a number of other urgent matters I had to make do, I can focus my attention back to the beaver mill.
    The first thing I did was the existing ball crew adjusted to the new situation,
    Starting with the removal of the hardened layer on the lathe.

    After removing the hard layer I put on a steady rest (A support that is clamped to the bed of a lathe,
    used when machining a long workpiece. Sometimes
    called a center rest.).
    And then I flipped the piece and cut the rest matriaal
    off.
    But first I have the chuck jaws to suit the ball screw,I have a number of different sizes of washers to put between the jaws to support them during turning .I turn them to the right dimension in this case 40 mm so I will not damage the part. After cutting off the exes material I make a new center whit a center drill.

    Now we make the nut.
    As you can see, you can use a ball bearing for centering the workpiece.

    We have adjusted the part of the base to the ball screw so they can be mounted together.
