machines which I have made, am making, or intend to make, and some other stuff. If you find this site interesting, please leave a comment. I read every comment and respond to most. n.b. There is a list of my first 800 posts in my post of 17 June 2021, titled "800 Posts"
Con rods for triple -3 finished!
The finished con rods. I wont bore you with the photos of milling the wishbone slots.
The crossheads have been dimensioned, and the big end bearings machined, and glued with Loctite in prpeatyaration (sorry, too many reds after dinner), preparation for accurate boring.
The big end bearings, machined, and glued, ready for accurate boring. Is that what I am doing to you???
Not boring us John, but I wish I could get as excited as you by crankshafts. Keep up the amazing work you do. It’s great to have such difficult challenges, and my admiration keeps growing at your capacities in solving manufacturing problems. In another life you perhaps should have given birth to new cars, aeroplanes, etc.
Yes, I wonder in retrospect if I should followed my father’s advice to become an engineer instead of a plumber.
