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 made the rest of the feet for the reel but forgot to take any pictures along the way. The pictures below are of making the small brass end caps for the feet to finish them off nicely.
The finished end caps are shown below.
Its not completely done yet but I put it together for a test fit etc. Its looking really good. Ive now got to take it apart to debur it, cut a slot in the hub to get the fiber into the center, and a couple other small modifications.
