Large Lathe Work

This video was created from some of the first video I took using my GoPro camera. At the time I did very little talking, as you will see in the video. Instead, I used text to tell about the maching steps I was taking during the job. This was a large 4-stage telescopic cylinder that I work on once in a while. I have to remove the blind end in order to remove all of the tubes to complete a full rebuild of the cylinder. These videos were mainly focused on the machining and removal of the blind end and corresponding stop tubes for each tube. I did try and film the testing process but the camera was acting up and I didnt get it all. But I hope you enjoy anyways. This is a little of what I do on the daily basis, and working with large workpieces is common for me. The lathe is an American Pacemaker 20x192.
