    Gordon replied to the thread Upshur Twin valve timing.
    I am embarrassed to say that I never thought to put the camshaft in the rotary table to position the second cam. That should have been...

    Gordon replied to the thread Upshur Twin valve timing.
    That has also been my experience. Like you I made a protractor but found that it really did not tell me much with any degree of...

    Gordon replied to the thread Upshur Twin valve timing.
    I agree. I was just looking for the general range of when valve action should occur. That has been answered. I am not sure how others...

    You obviously have far more talent than I do. There is no way that I could begin to hold those kind of dimensions or tolerances. Upshur...

    I have moved milling machines in the past with a boom type wrecker as used for disabled automobiles. It allows you to sling it from the...

    Gordon replied to the thread 3D printed bevel gear.
    It is too much work to tear the saw down to actually try it but as near as I can tell it should work, or at least work when/if I print...

    Gordon replied to the thread 3D printed bevel gear.
    I printed it using PLA and it looks good. I have not tried it on the machine but it looks right. It did indeed take 8 1/2 hours. The...

    Gordon replied to the thread 3D printed bevel gear.
    OK That was easier than I thought it would be. I just rotated it in CURA and started a new print. Looks OK so far. It is going to be...
