Trevithick Dredger Engine Guide Bars and Crosshead

As you can see from the photo, I have made the vertical guides, the curved top bar and the crosshead.

The curved bar was bent in the motorised ring roller which I made years ago.  Bending 3.2mm steel was easy.  I have bent steel bar up to 10mm thick in this machine.

Parts of the guide bar.  2mm thick.  I confess that these were CNC’d.

A few more parts required for the crosshead, but a test fit was quite good.  It is just pushed together at this stage.
