7/35 09- -Preparing roughed out bolster swivel plate blank to place on lathe for finish turning           Return to MSR&LHA Home page

The flat, notched-out side of the plate will be placed against the jaws of the lathe chuck, so these two chucking bars were temporarily welded to the swivel plate to provide a purchase point for the jaws to grasp. See next photo.
