Hi Sorry to say it but I have to back out befor I start. A very good friend asked me to do a project for him today that will require most of my time. So someone else can grab my spot.

I'm in as well. If we make Gerry's beam, I will do the flywheels,
crankshafts and most likley several other parts. There are approx.
60 separate parts, with multiples of some. Even with ten team members
that's a lot of parts per person. I suggest a few major parts and several smaller parts each. These would be linkages, pins, spacers, etc.
Are we using the metric plans or imperial? The metric plans do not
include a base, not sure about the imperial. We can also discuss fasteners
and if we want to supply them individually.
Based on prior team builds, communication is a good thing. Talking with
others about mating parts, fits and tolerances will pay off during assembly.
This will be a very ambitious project, and as a hobby, good results rather
than speed will make it more enjoyable.

Regards to all,
Maverick

Let's see if we can settle on an engine ... I propose Gerry's Beam Engine using imperial units. Anyone else?

Plans are available in the download section ... link:
OldBoatGuys_Engine_Plan.pdf

If you don't use this link be sure to download the version with the word ".... Plan" (it has 19 pages),
not ".... Plans" (it has 16 pages, missing 3 pages).

don-tucker has a build thread at:
http://www.homemodelenginemachinist....m-engine-8763/ to follow along.

So far we have 5 members could use a few more ....

I'm in.

With the access I have to a water jet, the frames would be simple for me to do, as would a number of other parts.

I would like to eventually build Gerry's Beam, but there are so many parts I don't have a clue how to make. Don't yet have taps smaller than 4-40, no laser cutter, etc., etc. Have thought a lot about building this engine with a wood frame, as my skills aren't up to machining the frames as designed.
Will you be using the original plans or redesigning parts to make them simpler?
But I will follow along with the build.

Chuck
