    Next build

    Hi, all. I've started my next build using these documents: Bogstandard’s “Paddleduck†Engine Plans – MachinistBlog.com So far, I've got the block plate, base plate and cylinder block started, but not finished at this stage. This is going to be a slow build, lots of small parts and and...

    Elmer's plans

    Thanks deverett. I've been on that site quite a few times, but never saw that link to the appendix. Must be going blind in my old age. But thanks again.

    Elmer's plans

    I've been looking at Elmer's plans to find another project for the future. I was, however, wondering what the letters in the plans stood for, eg., these plans: http://plans-for-everything.com/downloads/steam_engines/SE%20ElmerHorizontal.pdf have capital letters in circles. It would be nice to...

    Myford S7 saddle wheel

    Nice mod. Might try something similar on the Hercus I use. The cross slide handle is a real pain.

    A Lightweight Husky

    Lovely work. Something to aspire to.

    First engine, even if it is only a wobbler.

    Nice engines, but to be honest, I prefer the look of your father's engine. Also, it would be an easier job to fabricate the base as I don't have any casting equipment, yet. Where would be a good place to start a new thread for this? I'm seriously thinking of doing a better job on logging the...

    GreenTwin, I take it you've seen the magnetically sprung wobbler https://www.homemodelenginemachinist.com/threads/magnetically-sprung-wobbler.28961/ I'm thinking of trying that idea out on your engine, but I think I'll build another simple wobbler with one to see if it works. If so, then I'll...

    1 board foot is 2359.7372 cubic centimetres. Not sure what the metric equivalent of a bored foot would be though :)

    I enjoy filing, but it's hard on my hands, especially needle files, so I avoid it when I can. But it might be worth a go.

    Oops, I thought I hadn't posted that previous question. Sorry about that.

    First engine, even if it is only a wobbler.

    Prefer metric to those other strange numbers, lol. I'm doing a conversion to the closest metric equivalent, hopefully they'll work. I tend to use scraps for a lot of my work, especially in wood. I can dress it to any size I want, so that's not a problem. A question though, if you don't...

    GreenTwin, may I ask why the inlet and exhaust ports on that engine are the shape they are? Would they also work if they were just round?

    Very nice engine, GreenTwin. Think I might give it a go. After I redraw it in metric ;)

    Thanks, minh-thanh. I'm pretty happy with it.
