Turning the C2 Axles on the lathe at Boston Lodge - June 2014

A Dean Smith & Grace Lathe making steady work of turning standard gauge BT10 bogie (MKIII Carriage) axles down to size for the C2 locomotive. Here it is cutting at 150 thou on the radius but with each cut taking 20 minutes down the length of the axle it was a long weekend. - Andrew Nelms 28/06/2014
By the end of the weekend we have one roughed out axle ready for final turning between centres. 3 are nearly ready. - Andrew Nelms 29/06/2014
What the final axles will look like. - Andrew Nelms
