Spring holes

Today, despite still recovering from my cold I worked on the journals and pedestals.  First I finished drilling the clearance holes for the bolts that hold the 3 parts together.  Then I cleaned up the flashing & burrs on the parts so that the journals slide on their respective pedestals.  Next came drilling the holes for the spring mounting buttons.  Last was drilling the holes in the journal retainers.  Not much work for the day, but to be able to see the journals in position is a wonderful sight.
