model exhaust cone





I made a model exhaust cone from aluminium, to fit a friend's 1/5th scale Bloodhound SSC model.
I used the manual lathe for most of it, but did the bore with a 16mm tool on the Bridgeport milling machine.
The details were done using the 4th axis on my Sieg KX1 and a 3mm milling cutter. I made a bit of a mistake when I forgot to set the profile operation to the surface, so it dug into the part. Hopefully still looks good enough, though.
