Foot plate re-skim

In order to get the best results from the foot load cell sensors, I needed to get a better surface where the two parts mate. I managed to do some of the parts on my CNC machine, but these parts were easier to do in my rubbish lathe. I had to make up a holding jig to get them in the reverse jaw chuck. Actually the finish wasn't too bad as long as they were machines at 2500rpm.

This plate was initially skimmed on the CNC machine, hence the tool pattern. Once I had made the jig I re-skimmed them in the lathe.
