Fiber Optic Cable Reel for the ROV Tether

Designed by:  Dan Scoville

Machined by:  Dan Scoville

Goal:  Make a cable reel that will hold my ROVs fiber optic tether and contain a fiber optic rotary joints (FORJ.)

I stated in on the side plate for the reel.  These are made out of .125 inch think aluminum plate.   I roughed out the shape on the band saw and them set them up on the rotary table to get the outside diameter and inside diameter cut to size.

I assembles the parts that I made up to this point and its looking pretty good.
