Video: Making and Installing Porthole Blanks

makingAndInstallingPortholeBlanks

Making the blanks was super fun. The biggest rough spot was just working through the process of making such a big hole in a solid blank that was 8 inches deep. Like most problems, it wasn’t such a big deal, I just needed to think through the process.

In the end, each blank weighed in at 32 lbs. I had plans to drill holes to lighten the weight, but opted to keep the 3-4 pounds I might have saved on each blank in favor of moving  faster.

Video runs long. I  think from now on I’ll just put ion the time lapse footage and type in the explanations, yes?

Post your comments so I know if you want the explanation, or not.
