Jack, Thank you for sharing this build as I was looking at the purchase of this plan, but wasn't sure. Reading your posts and seeing your great strides and accomplishments, I know this little engine will be in my future.
You're doing a great job so please keep up the great work.
Thank's again,
Ren

Hey Jack,
Have you looked on Jerry's site lately? He put a nice paint job on his Farm Boy.

Jack,

Not only the crankshaft, the whole thing looks top drawer.

Best Regards

Outstanding work and you are making good progress.

I have always made my flywheels (only 4 to date). I found them to be quite easy assuming you have a rotary table. Also, my local metal supplier carries cylindrical remnants that he sells by the pound, so the price is right.





One question maybe you will share. Jerry Howell calls for 2 very small holes in his carburetor, one a #65 (.035") and the other a #76 (.020") . How did you acquire these and what chucks and speeds did you use?

Jack,

Do you mean you want them to be Cast Flywheels, look like Cast flywheels or just made from cast iron

Just curious.

Best Regards
Bob

Jack,

1st up

A suggestion, here we have a company who sell the remnants of spun cast iron bars, which is really nice material and very easy to machine. A piece 6" diameter would cost around $AU200/ft. BUT you have the rest for cylinders, pistons, piston rings etc. I did this with some 4" dia and I am still chopping lumps off it. I have so far made a full sized, (3 1/2" piston with matching rings), pistons and contra pistons for my 2 diesel models, the cylinder for my hit and miss. I will also be making the piston and rings for the H&M and I still have about 4" left.

Another source is foundry sprues, free but you don't quite know how much is usable. Or for a nominal sum the foundry will sell a lump say 10" x 8" x 4." To get under the skin you need carbide tips and when cutting it up it eats HSS power hacksaw blades at an alarming rate, (I ended up drilling and then belting it apart with a hammer and chisel).

You pays your money and you make your choices. I made a whole mill engine from sprues and said lump including the base 9" x 3 1/2" x 1 1/4".

Hope this helps.

Best Regards
Bob

Does anyone use cast iron freeweights from sporting-goods stores as flywheel raw stock?
