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.
