I got pegged :p
The other day I spent way too much time on the mill making these pegs for my rear-sets. More of what I like to call freestyle machining. I always have a general idea in my mind but as I whittle away I let it evolve. I feel that it just makes a better part in the long run. Reacting to lines and proportions as they change is a very exciting way to see something materialize. These started life as 4 1/2" long pieces of 1 1/2" diameter 6061 T6 rod. I plan to do a fair amount of hand finishing and then maybe a bead blasting and spot polishing for final finish... we will see.
