Another Number 5 Former

I’m still not happy with the way the #5 former is turning out. I cant seem to get the center portion that is the highest point when installed to turn out right. It seems like it needs another flute or two. I tried again tonight with deeper flutes but it still didn’t turn out.

Turtle Deck Ribs

I deburred the lightening holes in the turtle deck ribs. This time I took extra care so that I would not have to redo this after the forming process.

Built turtle deck forming blocks

Today I made the turtle deck forming blocks. These were made in the same fashion as the rib forming blocks. The only difference was that I made both a left and right forming block to make the left and right hand turtle deck ribs.
