    Yet Another Webster Begins

    also on the spring for the rocker arm, I used a broken band saw blade, use the grinder and the belt sander to make it to size. it was still a little thicker than plans but works well and holds its springiness (technical term) well. Brian R used a recoil spring from an old push mower blower...

    Yet Another Webster Begins

    Bob, i think I had to re-make that part 3 times before I got it right. I kept moving in the wrong direction thus cutting it to thin. something about that drawing just would not "click" in my head so I kept doing it wrong. but yours look good.

    Mihn Thanh, i actually did thin or "cut" the cams as you show. they were wider than per plans anyway so what i did was surface plate sand them down thinner like you show the cut. i just sanded instead of cut. started out with 220 grit then on up to 800 grit to get rid of the side marks that...

    so not much progress happening. i have been working through clearance issues with the piston rod. 1. it hits the brass spacer between the two cam lobes (spacer not part of the drawings) so i am making a new spacer that is super thin walled, also thinning the cams down to close to drawing...

    1/2 inch by 11 thread bolt ????

    Thanks William, I will ask them if they still need it, they probably do. it about 1.5 inches long and 3/4 inch head. where did you come up with a 1/2 x 11 die if you don't mind me asking?

    well, how I did it was press and lock tight the over length (longer than need be)brass pieces with the tits on them in the steel wrist pin. then after the loctight had time to dry I chucked the wrist pin in and faced the brass off down to the proper size and thought about using a form tool to...

    the wrist pin is center drilled all the way through. then 2 pieces of brass round stock is turned down to match the size of the wrist pin, then a little tit is cut on the tip of the brass to fit the drill hole. it is pressed in with lock tight. plans said aluminum, brass or copper would...

    not very much progress lately but I did manage to get the wrist pin made with brass insert tips on both sides. hope to do a mock up assembly now that I have the wrist pin and verify if the rod really is going to hit the cams or not.

    mine was Brilliance. I'm using a 15w I think diode laser. I had to turn the power way down seems 2-5w works well. I also did a test with yellow hot dog mustard as I saw that on the internet and it also worked "ok" on stainless but not nearly as dark as the brilliance was. but did smell...
