Triple Expansion Steam Engine Update, and some toy making
Some pictures following.
I have made the steam chest valves, the valve buckles, and the valve rods have been commenced.
And on a different subject, regarding last week’s post about making toys, this is the setup on my milling machine for CNC cutting of MDF. I am using the new high speed head running at 20,000 rpm with a 2mm cutter. There is a sheet of sacrificial MDF attached to the mill bed, and the material is attached to the sacrificial bed with double sided tape. I hand held a vacuum cleaner nozzle to suck up most of the MDF dust, rather than breathing it, or having it settle on my machines and causing rust.
