No expert tooling in a normal garage.
Well I like many others am very interested in how such a feat can be achieved successfully without the use of a milling machine, considering that several accurately machined holes are needed in the block..... :-?

Like any other engineering task, it's not just 'doing it' that's important, it's doing it properly.
Anyone should be able to put a 3 pin plug on a flex, but not everyone can do it safely. :wink:

you may laugh at that, but i am shocked at how many people cannot wire a plug. To top it all, my brother-in-law cannot use a screwdriver. His wife does all the DIY!

In the 50s, 60s and 70s most workshops had a radial arm drill, I doubt that the original holes were drilled on a mill.

Radial drill - reminds me of the time I went to the HSE black museum in London - there was large radial drill with a human scalp wrapped around the chuck. Someone had not tied their hair up or not put on a net to keep it all together. Whilst operating the radial drill their hair got wrapped around the chuck and their scalp was torn from their head.

——-and he’s the safety inspector. saying he’s most impressed with the working environment. If only other establishments were as safety conscious.

On my First day as an apprentice at Fodens ltd, we had a load of jars to pass round , they contained scalps, fingers etc. Each jar had a card which explained what had happened. One finger had been lost by a chap tripping and his wedding ring got caught on a weld mesh parts bin, it cut the finger straight off.
After that I always wore a safety cap when operating machines and have never worn a ring. The scare tactics obviously worked.
