Hi Folks,

after an interesting learning curve I am now up to speed on how I did the last ones and have now made 4 blanks.

Am awaiting a tool to cut the bulb holder hole (15mm Q-max cutter)

I have made the attaching flange a little bigger O/D for convenience.

For those who want one they are £6. (to cover metal and tooling costs)    PM me your address and I'll send Thursday/Friday this coming week.

Rather than q max cutter I would have held the job in a 3 jaw chuck on the lathe and passed a step drill through to the desired size.  Less effort and will probably get the hole in the centre every time.  

 

Just a thought....

Hi Pete,

I had considered that but the cutter gives a good precise hole.

There is no guarantee that the outer diameter on the flange is actually concentric with the centre as it is the result of the spinning process. 

A four jaw would do it but the cutter is easier.

Hi Folks,

the items are in the post today.

 

Whilst I am on a roll, if anybody else wants one then simply ask.  £6 each.

 

A single wire bulb holder will work fine but you need a separate earth to the cup.
