I had a friend from Minnesota come over and teach me how to weld aluminum and solder sheet metal together. IT was amazing! I love learning new things. I didn't take any pics, I'll take some later on. My dad finished up this 53 bottom end over the weekend.
Our friend Paul came by and spent a couple days with us too. His uncle was Harry Mollenar, so I got to hear all sorts of neat and interesting stories about a guy that I have idolized since I was a little kid.
Next up is John's 48! His cases are all prepped and ready to go
The bottome end sits in a fixture and we plug fit the bearings for the pinion and sprocket shaft!
