Left : to make a oil level gauge,I need to make some special nuts with thread in it all the way.So first I made some regular nuts,and soldered a plate on them,wich is later made further in form on the lathe.Right you can see the gauge ready,wit the special made nuts the o-ring gets some pressure to make sure it is leak-free.

Left you see the first parts of the oil tank soldered together.Right a view from the front,the gauge is assembled,the 3 tubes are going to the pumps inlet,the lower block is the return to the tank.

Left a sideview.Right a view from the bottem,the plates with the bended fixing holes ,that are bolted to the tank, are being used to fix the tank to the upper machine bottem.

Above you can see that the tank has it's front and backside added,and is placed on the machine to get an idea how it looks.

Left: first I'm making some ribs with the milling machine on a square piece of brass,this will become the tops of the filter housings.Right you see all the parts ready for soldering together.

Above you see the filters ready,and glued with 2 K glue on the tank.Also fitted are the ribs on the long vertical part of the filters from 1 mm brass wire,and the little bolts M1.2 ,they are glued with 10 sec. glue.

15 May 2014:

Left you can see that I milled from brass the light holders,on the background you can see a picture of the real ones.Right you can see that the back covers are made,and the bars in front to protect the lights are also placed.

Above you can see how I attach the holders to the boom,on the boom there is made a stud with thread on it,on the right you see that in the holders is made some space,so there can the nut be added,and the holder can be tightened to the boom.
