Path, have you done up the spreadsheet of spoke for parts? I'm still on the fence about joining the build.
The only metric tap I have is M6, to match the majority of screws on my lathe and mill, and no die for M6. The smallest imperial tap and die I have is 6-32.
I have some nice turning shafting salvaged from old inkjet printers. I can turn shafts and such and am looking at the cylinder covers as a possibility as I have some 1 1/2"brass bar ends for those.

Chuck

Chuck,

Yes, I've working on it most the day and about to post it (once I figure that out)!

In your last post you did say that you were bowing out. So I don't have you listed
for any parts. The ones you did mention have been taken. So once I do get the list up let's see what the team members pick and go from there.


Pat H.

Team members ...
We now 8 team members (with the addition of chrispare) .... with the possibility of a ninth member chucketn.

So how many engines do we build?

From what I have read it's usually the number of team member plus 1.
The extra one goes to shows then auctioned off with the proceeds contributed to a worthy cause. Or something along those lines. I think that's great and would support that effort. However, I don't have the connections nor the means to pull that together. Someone on the team would need to take on that assignment. Volunteer?

About the grouping and the Excel spreadsheet.

So far the groupings are coming along together pretty good.

I would have like to see the Piston and Cylinder assembly made by the same builder. Looking at page 16 the cylinder assembly .... everything needs to be as concentric as possible so that no binding takes place. With two different builders that may not be so easy. Solution ... would chrispare and dalem9 take a look and see if you could build say 5 assemblies each? If not ... that's okay. Just a thought. Other suggestions are welcomed.

If not ... chris ...then would you take on Item 23,25, 29? delem9 could you pick up a few more items left over (say page 12)?

Ninefinger ...I see that you have signed up for the Eccentric Strap (item 17), it would be great if you would include the Eccentric (item 14)?

Joe_d ... now the time choose ... page 7 item 8-11 and/or page 12 item 18-21 or maybe page 15.

rhitee93 can up pick a few additional items on page 15 or maybe page 7, 12.

After this go around will take another look ... if anyone wants to swap anything ... post it and see what the other team members can/will do.

Now I'm going to try and post the Excel spreadsheet ....

Here's the Excel stuff ...

Team Build 8 details.xlsx

Hey it worked !!

Now for some notes ...
I assigned the Item Number starting with page 3 (item 1), next page going from top
left to right then bottom left to right (most cases) on each page.
Assemblies were not counted (see page 16 for example).

Hardware will come later.

If you have any suggestions on format let me know ... can and will make changes.


Later,

Pat H.

I am not set for any milling as of yet so the cylinder would be a bit much to handle right now, but since there must be a o-ring it shouldnt be a problem being done by seperate people?
as for me doing the other parts, it shouldnt be a problem.

Pat,

No problem - I can do the eccentric as well (part #8014). I'll wait and see how the rest shapes up and if needed I can chip in with a few more of the bits not spoken for yet.

I would like to participate in the team build, if it is still possible. If not, please say so, and I'll understand. I had an attack of "I'm not good enough..." Can't improve without a challenge, right?
I downloaded the spread sheet and see that pages 7, 12, and 15 are not assigned. Is that correct?
Also figured out after scratching my head a while, that pages 7,18, and 19 were missing from the origional downloaded plan. Got that sorted out.
Need a suggestion for a reasonably priced tap and die set for 2-56. My local sources don't cary anything that small.

Chuck

Do a search for MSC supply they have lots of machine tools and material. They ship next day to most areas.
