The next job on the axleboxes is the remetaling of the thrust faces and crowns. Here the former is held in place with one or two G-Clamps and sealed with fire clay before heating and pouring the white metal. A video showing the axleboxes being machine can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ur4j-e80ofM
