Today I’ve cleaned up the back side of the seam (outside of the chamber) and placed the back seam on both halves of the chamber. I’ve also layed out the positions of port holes according to the drawing and prepared the flange for the diffusion pump connection.
Now I have to find the way to swap the milling machine table with the double pivot universal one for boring the inclined holes.

Laying out the chamber centerline:

Doing major machine mounting changes can be tough and time consuming to do one particular job. Finally, you realize you have to put the machine back into the "normal" manner of use once you are done. More trouble and hassles. But, it has to be done to proceed. Thanks for the continued updates and discussion on what you must do to keep moving on in the effort.
