    Once you have filed the parting line, you then need to grab the flyheel inbetween the spokes, preferably with a six jaw chuck , since this needs to run as true as possible to look correct and be as balanced as possible when the engine is running. It will also allow you to machine most of the flywheel without rechucking it and makes it easy to machine the opposite side.

    I would like to throw in some info on general machining of cast flywheels. Unless they are lost wax cast or die cast, they will never be 100% concentric side to side. The first thing you need to do is go around the inside of the rim between the spokes and file the flash off the parting line of the sand casting.

    Hi Peter,

    I have a newer Super 7 Plus for sale is you’re still looking. Serial number is SK171149M. I’ve done research and the person from that link in the thread where I found that you’re looking for one sold for $10,800us but that was a long bed model. I’m asking $12,000. Please let me know if you’re interested.

    Hello Mark,

    I happened upon your posts on this forum regarding your 1/4 Scale Galloway build. I currently own a finished 1/4 Scale Galloway. The “trip lever” has snapped in half. I am by no means a machinist so was wondering if you’d be interested in possibly machining a new one for me? Thanks for your consideration!!

    Hello Angie
    I'm a new member, and i have a lot of used CBN and diamond tipped inserts for sale
    Are there conditions attached to offering on the forum?
    They have been used in the industry for a limited time and then they are replaced
    The ones i sell, are all checked with a magnifying glass, they are all in good condition
    Best regards,
    Luc De Wispelaere

    I have been offline for a while but I notice that Project of the month winners have that noted on their profile. I was lucky enough to win it in Feb 2014 but it is not noted as such. Is this an oversight or was it not policy back then?

    I was thinking of my earlier comments and maybe your grandson.

    Who knows, he may have the 'gift'

    It certainly exists- as I know.

    I know one or two of my masonic brethren who possess something like that.

    Could be a nice debating topic but hardly amongst - this lot. Saints preserve us.

    cheers or Norm
