    New Toys at Work

    Today saw the deliviery of our 2 new CNC machines...a Haas TL-1 lathe and what they call the Mini-mill VMC. Just a few pictures of each...not great pictures but excited none the less to have them both in house now. The local rep will still need to come in and finish the installation and check...

    Has anyone noticed?

    I was searching for B-88 needle bearings yesterday for the Rider-Ericsson build and one of the sources that popped up was Amazon though they only had one and i needed 2. Further down the search list was smallparts.com which I have used occasionally so I clicked on that link and up comes...

    1/4 Scale Rider-Ericsson Pumping Engine

    I first saw this engine 12-13 years ago at the NAMES show where Mr. Myers was showing his casting kits. Should have picked it up then at the show but didn't, however it immediately went onto the wish list! I've had the castings for a year or so now but was letting them "age" while finishing up...

    Interesting find...

    Nope....not a new tool or flea market find or anything like that...something right here on the HMEM site. Looking down the left hand column of the home page, I always look at the 10 most recent posts, often check to see who the latest new member is, check for any new PM's, and so on...just never...

    Briggs & Stratton 6S

    Except for some work on making a settable throttle, I am considering the project complete. After the first video I wanted to add one showing the engine running at more of an idle speed which it now does rather well albeit with a little jumping around when it misses now and then. Its still has...

    Punch and Die Set

    A few pages back on the Briggs & Stratton thread I had mentioned a long standing desire for a shim stock punch and die set. At that time I had missed out (read procrastinated too long) on the standard set from MSC which was discounted in their March or April sales flyer. When the June flyer...

    Shop Clock

    I have had one of those battery powered clocks that the wife and I picked up somewhere as a souvineer sittin on the shelf above the mill for ages, since some other little knick-knack took its place in the house. The battery has long since died, and the original face of small dried flowers...

    Starting up a Fairbanks Morse 37 1/2 HP Diesel

    In preparation for our annual Cotton Ginning Days Festival next weekend, we held a work session today, mainly to crank up the 1920 Fairbanks-Morse 37 1/2 HP 2 cycle diesel engine which is used to power the working cotton gin and bale press. I made a video of the start up this morning and include...

    New addition to family

    Please allow me a few lines to introduce my first grandchild...Lindsey Page, born today at 6:06 PM. She arrived at 7 lbs 8 oz wide eyed and perfect in every way and her mom (my oldest daughter) and her dad are doing well and as proud as they can be. In a matter of 30 minutes she already had her...

    Nomination for July POM

    I know the nominations have not been opened yet, but having never nominated a project and knowing how quickly the 3 can be picked, I would like to nominate (or pre-nominate) Dean's Duplex Vacuum engine for the July POM. This was a fine buikld thread, wonderfully detailed, and a unique engine...

    Nice Surprise

    Not sure if it was the heat, use, or just one of those things but my 6 gal. shop vac up and died this past Monday. Worked fine Sunday, and then on Monday...nothing, nada, zilch...just that fast, and with a big mess on the floor and workbench to boot. After taking it apart I traced the problem to...

    Fastener Storage

    A few years back I bought three compartmented storage boxes (see photo 1) and used one each for 0-80, 1-72, and 2-56 fasteners but they only had 10 compaartments each and I have never been able to find similar ones again and prefer consistency. Anyway had been looking around for some suitable...

    New Toy

    I have been looking at one of these for three years or so and partly because I found more of a need for it with the Briggs & Stratton build, I broke down and ordered it earlier this week. I was delighted when it arrived yesterday in time for the weekend. Set it up and gave it a test drive this...

    Refurbished Belt Sander

    I had this old Kalamazoo Industries 1" x 42" belt sander doing nothing but collecting dust so I decided to tear it apart, clean it, and paint it. I coulfnt believe how much dust amd grime I blew out of the motor. It had mainly been used to sand ejector pins to exact length back in my injection...

    Briggs & Stratton 6S - A Beginnig

    Well some of the first chips have been made on a new project, a half scale model of a 1950's B & S 6S engine. I picked up the full size engine in non-working condition at a swap a year or so back. It was missing the gas tank, carb, and air filter and from the outset I wish to thank rake60 for...

    What should I buy

    Hi Glenn, Personally I prefer separate machines rather than the combos. After that a lot will depend on what size projects (engines) you plan on building. Another thing to consider it the availability of accessories for whatever you decide. That isn't usually a big problem since there are so...

    Magnifying Visors

    There have been several comments lately as to needs for magnification when working with smaller models. I happened to notice in the current sale flyer from MSC that the Bausch & Lomb MagnaVisor is on sale for $36.99. (Link below). I got one of these a year os so back and have liked the quality...

    Yet another rocker engine

    Seeing all the other posts I got the rocker-itis too and thought it would make a good Saturday project which it did. Using the plans posted here in another thread and scrounging for a few scraps that would work, just under 8 hours later it came to life of the first try. The cylinder and body is...

    Half Scale OPV engine

    I had previously posted what I called an Oscillating Piston Valve engine. Though it runs well I always thought it was a bit large so I have been working on a half scale version, albeit with slow progress. Everything but the piston and linkage is now complete and I hope to have it running over...
