I found out the resolution of my camera was too good and had to drop back for them to up load.
First pic shows the parts laid out notice the broken washer, this was the leather seal I made for bottom of quil to shield the bearing and retain grease, it lasted several yrs.
The next pic shows the slot in side of quil that must be plugged, I would prefer to machine an aluminum plug to force in with an o ring, but my spindle is down to parts so . . . . .
last is the bottom end of quil that will be machined for the seal right after I get it (today ?) I'll show the machining of it when it gets done.
I have looked at the top and find that I can machine the spindle and quil to lower the bearing, then fit a spacer between bearing and nut that a seal can ride on. I'll do that after the bottom is done so that I don't have any surprises (hope hope)
Now if only the phone would ring and tell me my seal is waiting !
