Small update, I have decided to have just one support for the motor drive shaft, I attached the shaft into a hand drill to make sure it was running smooth, I was really pleased with the outcome  :-))

Quite a bit done today thats both units up to the same level, the next job will be to make the nozzles and the bracket to secure them to the drives. I haven't managed to get the alloy tube yet but not desperate at the moment, the other photo is showing how the mould is progressing.

Hi all, after spending quite a while looking for the right sized alloy tube to make the nozzles  without any success i have bought a solid alloy bar off eBay. should have it early next week, it will be quite a big job boring it out to 84mm for the 80mm props.
We will see how the mini lathe copes with this as it will be at its maximum external jaw limits  {-)

Good luck with turning that size aluminium, but what  a waste of material  <:( I have been sitting on the fence over a new lathe for the last year now, finally jumped on to the side that says 'buy one' :} I'll be ordering it from Germany after Xmas, lets call it a late chrissy present.
Thinking about the wasted material, could you not mount a hole cutter in the tail stock and bore out a good portion to be set aside for future projects, in essence take a plug of material from the centre of the bar?

It is a waste as you say Brian, I have never tried a hole cutter on alloy I don't know if it would cut. I am sure you will get a lot of enjoyment out of your new lathe  :-))
