And the low quality of the pictures makes the welds look bad.

The shave came out nice. How hard was it to turn the ring down? I have a Clausing lathe at the house that can easyly do a ring but never tried it. I guess once you agt past the first few Thou. it softens up, so ive herd.

We used a cnc machine with an end mill, so it worked pretty good that way. Didn't actually turn it down.
