Made a little more progress this weekend.  Here's a couple of pictures of what I have done so far.
And I swear I put the bolt hole on center of the part......

It's almost done.  Got to bore out the bronze bushing for the running bushing to run in, and drill and tap a hole for a Gits oil cup.

Trying to decide if I want to paint it or attempt Tool Black on it. :97:

Looking good.   Id do paint to match mill.

The mill was painted with Ford tractor blue I got from the Tractor Supply almost 20 years ago.  After painting the mill, I'm not too keen on it.  I don't have intentions of repainting the mill anytime soon.  If Tractor Supply has it in a rattle can, I will paint it the same color.  I was just there this past weekend....
