    The four jaw chuck requires a dial indicator for centering the work.

    If I use the dial indicator with the mag base, it's a sloppy mess to work with.

    To start I kludged up an indicator mount... Yucky, but way easier to index the work this way.

    And made an indicator holder.

    Yes, that will work. Still need the T-nut machined to fit the compound rest for the quick change post.

    Finally, gave it a brushed finish using the sander...

    I spent some time on this project again.

    I trimmed this aluminum panel to fit the battery box. It still needs holes.

    Then I drilled the kydex cover panel.

    Then I trimmed the panel to fit the edges of the box, and match the curve of the rear fender. Belt sander and bandsaw came in handy here.

    Awesome build! I've found the Magura 4-pot calipers to have good braking power, especially when applied to a 203mm rotor (I run those or sram guides, which are similar, on my pedal mtb with 203mm rotors front and rear and love the setup--I live in the mtns so they get a workout). I've thought of building my old Kona Stab DH bike into an e-bike in this manner. Probably much too lazy to get around to it, but it'd be fun!
