Babbitt bearings

by TheFnord

Like Doc says, Babbitt bearings have to be poured in place and THEN scraped to final fit.

The shaft that the bearings are to run against are incorporated into the casting process, albeit covered with soot to prevent the metal adhering to the shaft.

Almost a lost art these days - I've never seen it done in person, but have seen the process illustrated in the restoration of antique tractors.
