I didn't see the springs on the parts list. Are we making springs or finding some that are already made?

Forgot about the springs. We'll have to make them also. Anyone want to play with those?

We are still missing page ten. David sent me a link with the plans and it is gone off his page also. I Emailed him and let him know about it.

I attempted to solder a 3/16 carbide endmill to a piece of brass shim stock(.020" thick). It worked very well. I can't solder for $#!^ ,yet. So I'm sure soldering won't be a problem.

Wes, I'll do the Bobbins. I didn't see a call out for material type for them though.Needs to be a good bearing surface inside and out. How about cast iron or brass?

I was just checking to see if Te_gui got my PM about the Flywheels? I haven't heard back yet.

Hey Wes,

I had thought I replied but it may have gone poof, I dunno. We are trying to decide on flywheel material. I have lots of steel available, maybe some brass/bronze but probably not enough to do all of them. If I do steel I am looking into a friend who does nickel plating to see if that might be a feasible option. Enough brass from McMaster Carr will be about 650 so that's a little steep. I think aluminum might be a little light for a hit and miss, they need the mass to carry them thru. Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions?

Brian

I plan to paint my flywheels, similar to the pictured version. So steel is fine for me.
