Started sawing on and laying out my reclaimed Teak decking from the USS North Carolina.

MAN this stuff is really really pretty when you cut into it! I still have one whole 13' board left, granted its the roughest one, but something else needs to get made. The old bolt holes will get plugged with grain inlays from the end drops. The seat keys will be recessed and I have to make the side pieces that go around the fenders.

I feel smart for this advance thinking though; given the history of this material, I figured it'd be a good idea to run a metal detector over each piece before feeding it into any sort of wood working machine. We didn't find any bullets, just some of the original anchors.

Got the axles torn down and sent out for hot tank and parts washing. Found some bad bearings in the third so have to dig into my parts stack. I don't want to use the straight cut taper bearings and would rather stay with the spherical ones like these originally were. Also removed the kingpin studs from the front.

The one photo compares a Dana 60 pinion yoke to that of this Eaton stuff... BEEF.
