stevehuckss396 thanks !!!

Bob sorry I looked for more pictures of those rods but I didn't have anything else. I also stop at 2-56 and what I did is make the rods thick enough for the 2-56 threads and longer than needed. Then I chucked them in the lathe and used a 2-56 die to cut the threads turning the chuck by hand slowly . I needed the extra length to get the die cutting and then once it cut close to the correct position I flipped the die over and ran it backwards to finish the threads to the dimension needed. I cleaned up the transition from threads to round stock with a quick cut with a thread cutting tool on the tool post and just let it cut a shoulder. After that I trimmed the threads to the correct length. To keep the die square I braced it against the drill chuck i had mounted in the tail stock and extended it as the treads were cut. I don't have a holder for dies that can be used in the tailstock, I just have a normal hand held holder. The nut is a piece of rod that was drilled and tapped and then I milled the flats for a wrench to fit. A bit of locktite holds it all together. I hope this all comes across well, I have it pictured in my head but getting that to words is hard sometimes
Pete

Default More help for Vee 2

H Pete: More questions please. Hope u see these soon. Progress is stopped.

Besides the porting valve body question, which I appreciate u answering, look at part 25, the reversing valve body. I see 2 holes in the cross brace and the body sits on it, but there are no corresponding holes in the valve body! Where and how does the reversing body mount? Also, what/where does part 25a do/go? Part of the reversing valve body? Can't tell at all. Thanks so much fo the help!

Bob

Pete: You were very helpful on my first questuion. But I still need lots of help. There's the question WRT the valve body orientation AND I just can't figure out the valve body at all! Even a highly experienced machinist friend couldn't help! I THINK I've discovered at least 2 mistakes in the drawing?! Could I possible call you and we could discuss over the phone maybe even Facetime to help with the drawings? I'm completely dead in the water here. I'd greatly appreciate some help. I'm so close!

Default Modelldampfmaschine V10/12

Help!!! I have about 95% of this built but the reversing valve body has me very confused and frustrated!! I think I have found at least two major mistakes in the drawing and translating the German wrt that part(s) helps none but I am not sure. Could anybody please help me? A very experienced machinist and model builder couldn't help me!!
Please call or I can call you. Just LMK. I think 15 minutes on the phone would do the trick. I have very specific questions. THANKS!!
