    This weekend I got a little more done on the grader. The first pic is the engine platform followed by a sub assy of the limited circle plate, rear differential and transmission. The next is the tandem covers and then the drive train axle fitted with slides. The last two pics are of a mock up assy of the parts shown.
    Cheers Elderly

    The grader is continuing to progress slowly. Just a couple of pics one of the rear frame assy with a few parts fitted and the other of a test fit of the front and rear frames.
    Cheers Elderly.

    Loving it all, Elderly. The jelutong is beautiful timber. Looks lovely when assembled with some contrast timber.I would have worried that it might be a little soft and a little easily bruised. I have only handled some in a short lived local community wood carving course that taught me nothing.

    I know from David's work, that wood can be easily bruised and dented, and I'm forever tidying up his work spaces to ensure that tools and offcut bits etc don't damage the work in progress.

    Keep it coming, looking forward to keeping an eye on the progress. You have wonderful skills. Your work is so crisp and accurate. Love it!!!

    Hi LiliB,
    Thank you for your kind comments. You are correct about the jelutong it is very easily marked bruised or broken. It is the first time I have worked with it and I would not use it again on such and intricate project.
    Cheers Elderly.

    Hi Crowie,
    Everything is fine, thanks for asking. I have a lot on at the moment and I have not had much time for the grader. I hope to get back to it soon.
    Cheers Elderly.
