Here I am showing more of the set-up I used to create the flat surface. You can see the length of angle that passes through the roller and is fastened with a C-clamp. It is shimmed to provide the correct location. I used this angle to guide the die grinder as I moved it back and forth over the hole.

Edit: This picture is also upside down. I don't know why this happens, they are correct on my end. Sorry for any trouble.

Here I iam cutting a groove on the surface of a piece of steel with a special made boring bar. The groove will accept the O ring seal shown. Notice too the counter bore hole in the center. This will be used for locating as you will see later.

Perhaps I should start holding the camera upside down.

Here I have inserted a pilot to locate the block. It will fit the counter bore.

After transferring the location of the hole in the block to the surface of the hub with a transfer punch I drill with a small center drill. Here I have started with a number 1 center drill, I will follow with a number 3.

I will hold my iPad upside down while loading this picture.

The rotating pics kind of make you dizzy. I tried my phone once and got similar results, so now I only use the camera. Looks like a nice fix. Now just to remember to grease regularly.

markttu explained to me that our iPhones use the gps/level/compass utility to determine which way is up when you take the picture. He advised to hold the phone in the orientation you want the picture to be for several seconds before you start taking pictures and to keep it that same way throughout the session.
I even hold it and shake it a few times before lining up the photo.
I tend to hold my iPhone with the start button to my right in landscape position.

It has worked for me, others say it doesn't work for them but I think the difference must lie in the translation. Or maybe it doesn't work with all brands.

When that fails, running any picture through Irfanview (on my pc) or similar can orient the photo anywhere I want it to be.
That's what I used for the last 4 pictures.

Only here on SFT do I have this issue, all of my pictures are right side up when I take and store them. It seems that they are being inverted during the process of placing them here.

I will try inverting them prior to placing them here, below is my first attempt.

Edit: this picture is upside down.

I have a tool ready for tryout. This will be used to create a series of small bends along 21.5" of 1/4" plate steel. The bends will be spaced 2" apart. The intention is to create a curve in the plate that closely matches the radius of the roller.
