    1/4 scale V8, first project.

    Retailer, I wouldn't let lack of cnc put you off Steve's plans. Just work round the problems as they occur. Most things can be made without cnc, although it is a lot trickier sometimes. I've never used any cnc. Look at the complex shapes George Britnell creates using manual machines.

    1/4 scale V8, first project.

    Hi, let me dig the drawings out, as I can't remember what I did at the moment. It was something I came up with on my own. It worked great though, I remember that.

    hello everyone. This thread gets weirder all the time.

    Rivett 608 lathe.

    I've decided I'm getting rid of my 2 old lathes and getting something more modern. I overhauled this Rivett 608 a few years back. I've spent about £600 to get it where it is today, so all I want is that amount back. Comes with er32 collet set, quick change toolpost, single phase with Bosch...

    broken tap in aluminum cranckase

    Peter, I know you said the part is just about scrap now, but if you wanted to experiment further, just out of interest, then could you set up a lash up anodising tank? Plastic bowl, battery acid, bit of lead sheet and 12 volt supply. I would be surprised if the tap wasn't out in under 2 hours...

    Have a look at post number 28. That should explain it. I don't know if there's a proper name for this type of journal, but that's what I call it.

    1/3 scale V10, second project

    hello all, for those who haven't seen it, here is the engine running. Still needs some work on the spark plugs, and a bit of tidying up. https://youtu.be/rz0Uteqfpao

    1/3 scale V10, second project

    Thought I would post a quick update, for those that haven't seen the progress. I'm on the final straight now, just some tidying up with bolts, etc. and some work on the cam covers around the spark plugs, and then it's ready to run. I have had it running on a small carb but it's now got the fuel...

    1/4 scale V8, first project.

    I think the last two messages sum it up quite well. Most of the requests for plans seem to come from China, although I can't imagine what they'd do with them! I would happily sell the V8 and probably the V10 for the right price, but the most I've been offered for the V8 is £200 and the chap...

    1/4 scale V8, first project.

    Johnny, I haven't got a full set of drawings available to send out I'm afraid. I can send you some cad drawings of specific areas of the engine if this would help. Can I suggest you start your own build thread, where you can tell everyone who you are and whereabouts you are in your project? I'm...

    1/4 scale V8, first project.

    I have had a look through my drawings and sketches, and realise that it would take far too long to get them into a state where someone else could make a working engine from them. I'm afraid I don't have the time, or incentive, to sort it all out, so, apologies to the genuine posters, but there...

    ok, whilst I am getting all the drawings together, could you send us some links to your previous model building projects, to see if my plans would be suitable for you? Cheers, Keith.
