more spindle making

Today was another fun skill building day.  I was able to finish my attempt at a phang using a lathe and my buddy who was letting me use his lathe took the sketches and photos of the Qashqai spindle and made a mock up of one.  It works and you can take it apart and put it back together.  Now to scale it down and drop the weight by quite a bit:>.
