Sometimes a project takes more time head scratching than actual
machining.
For the .250 bore allow about .010 for reaming. This gives the
reamer some material to center up in. I can send you a spare .250 reamer
if you'd like. I have a handful from an auction.

Regards,
Maverick

Getting close to finishing my parts. Got 1 more hole to drill and ream, and the final bling to work out.
Who is going to receive the members parts and redistribute? Is there a way we can pay for postage and anciliaries like screws? I don't think we all want to by boxes of each type of fastener needed. Why not divide the cost of fasteners among the members and add that to the cost of the postage?
One more question. On the connecting rod I'm making, the clevis threads on the rod I asume that is for adjusting the length of the rod. How about a hex nut to lock the adjustment? I could get a piece of brass hex and make some nuts to add a bit of bling?

Boy ... you sure are moving right along and the parts look great.

Way back in an earlier post I mentioned that each builder would supply their own hardware. That way they could pick the style to suit them. I plan on making my own hex as mentioned on page 16. If I do buy I would only buy one length and then trim as needed. No money exchanges hands. If obtaining the 2-56 hardware becomes a problem ... let us know, I'm sure someone would help out.

In January I will request e-mail and mailing addresses from each builder. Then I will provide each member with that information ... you then mail your part(s) to each member.

Won't need a hex nut ... assembly can't rotate.

I think it would make better economic sense for all of us to send our parts to one person, plus the return postage, that person repackages the parts in USPS " if it fits it ships" boxes and sends them out. I will volunteer to do that.
Has anyone made a list of fasteners needed? I honestly haven't paid attention to that detail.
I understand the 'doesn't move' on the connecting rod.

Chuck ..

Opps .. I guess that didn't come across very well. I'm sorry ... I didn't mean for it to sound that way.

As far as shipping ... thanks for volunteering, may take you up on that.
But here is my take on it ... and this is only my opinion.
First ... need to take you out of the equation. This is not directed at you or anyone else on this team.

Now ... I don't like mailing all my parts to one person ... too many things can happen. And things do happen ... accidents, illness, family and job obligations, and host of other things. Well intended promises can be broken, in other words ...things get in the way. Imagine... everyone sends their parts to me and something happens so that I don't (or can't) follow through. Everyone suffers. But if they sent their parts to the other 8 team members ... obligation has been met. When I receive parts from the other team members it becomes my responsibility to finish my engine. There are other reasons but enough.

Let's open this up for discussion and then we can decide which way is best for this team. TB 4 and 6 we sent to each other.

I would agree that the parts be sent to each member from the one who made them. It seem much cleaner that way

Sending individually has worked well in the past.
That's my vote.

Guess I'll go with the majority then.

Another question. Are we as individuals applying bling, or is that up to the individual?
