Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it – no matter if I have said it! – except it agree with your own reason and your own common sense.” – Siddhartha Gautama, a.k.a. the Buddha

As you can see things are coming along. I set up the engine so that I could use the unit as a wood lathe to turn the hubs concentric to the shafts. All was going well UNTIL I put the blade on. Whoops! The shafts are to small and flex inward so the blade pops off. Simple fix but a bit more cash involved for larger bearings. Still under $300 all said and done. Told ya all I was a cheapassfrugal beast.
