« Part 6: (before) Making the roof Part 7 of Peterbilt truck series Part 8: Schaft drive »

Made the air filters before on the lathe. The wood I used is Auwora (a beautiful (west) African wood)

First started sanding the radius in the air filter mount:

Then made the mounts to witdh of 12,7 mm (1/2”)

Saw and sanded the mount to the correct length. Below you can see al the parts:

Glued the mounts to the airfilter:

And finally sanded the mounts to the correct thickness. The reason I did this after glueing and at last is to make the mount backside exactly parallel to the filter. And also it is easier to hold.:

Nice work Jan and some impressive blue prints too. Did you make them with your CAD program?
