One picture here shows where I poured half the bearing at a time. The excess is fairly easily filed away. You could use a grinder to get close but at $10 a pound I wanted to save every shaving.
The next picture is after my 1 St attempt, it turned out pretty good. You need 80% contact so I read and this is well over that.
The picture of the shield show some spatter that occurred when pouring the top half of the bearing. I don’t know what caused it, probably sweat inside I couldn’t see. They recommended to wear safety equipment and this is probably the best $3 I spent. Next attempt on the top I’ll wear a hat of some sort and a leather welding jacket. Preparing to move my daughter down to the University of South Carolina Wednesday so the project is on hold again.
