Machining Operation 1 of three for a pump housing

This is a replacement housing for the battlers connection pump for my K class light cruiser.

The main reason for making it... Because I can. There are two more operations to go. One to mill slots in the base and one to mill the efflux hole.

The deck is lasercut ply coated in epoxy.

Here is the upper aft turret in its 'ready to go' configuration

And this is how one maintains the thing. the bolt is a captive stainless 4-40 for size comparison.
