Sherman suspension

It has been almost 7 years since I've been able to run a lathe much, but getting back to it. A little slow getting back in the grove, but now that I have my own and it has finally been properly leveled and shimmed I'm hoping I'll be able to get back on my game. I have turned down 12 bogey suspension arm shafts to go in the trucks, and bored out collars to put between the suspension arms. I have also drilled and tapped the shafts and collars so I can hold everything in place with a 3-48 "bolt". If I ever need to break it down, I can remove the bolt and everything will slide apart. The collars will keep the shafts from moving in or out of the trucks with the bolt installed.

Did the gallery issues ever get fixed? I'm not wanting to pay photo bucket, and have had much luck using the Gallery so far.

Re: Sherman suspension

Thanks Pangea! I will check them out. Tried 2-3 others, but just didn't work very well. I went through and deleted all I could out from Photobucket to keep the basics, but still not allowing me to share pics right.

Thanks again, I'll send you a post.
