Drag Links for Reversing Mechanism on Triple Expansion Steam Engine
A bit more progress today.
I spent the whole day making these drag links, and I was pretty happy with the result.
Then I realised that I need 6, and I had made only 3. (well there are 3 cylinders you see).
So you know what I will be doing tomorrow….
The drag links are the 3 items with the bearings at the ends, and the connecting rods. Those rods are 1.6mm diameter (1/16″ inch), and the nuts are BA 10
I dropped 2 of the nuts. Gone forever.
