Wish I had CNC but that is way beyond my abilities or budget.
I got my band saw straightened out, had to install a new blade, clean, allign, and adjust the guide bearings.
Now I'm ready to start on parts. I have 3 pieces of 1 7/8” brass bar ends about 3” long. I'm trying to figure out the best way to get 10 pieces .500 x .250 x .500 from them for the crank bearing, while minimising waste.
Also, what is the easiest way to build the connecting rod? Can I not make the basic rod from 3/16 steel rod and have some one silver solder on a flat piece for the square end? I do not have facility to silver solder.
I have never made anything this small,or this complex.
