New form 1 can build starts...


If you look at the drawing you will see a triangular cross section near the leading edge of the cone. I did that as a means of holding the baffle for cutting the other side using collets to make adjusting/loading easier for that side. Worked great. I will hand scallop that section to be a sort of spiral pattern after I get all the baffles cut.

Here's the test baffle being held in the 1" collet for cutting the downstream concave cone using a boring bar:

The 303 stainless cuts very well with both carbide and HSS.
