    Bashed version of the siamese twins

    To the vids! In the first you will notice the crank throws are at 90 degrees. In the second the throws are at 0, both on the same power stroke, it's a little harder to keep running at slow speeds when set at zero, heavier flywheels would help. The flywheel spokes become visible at slow speeds...

    Bashed version of the siamese twins

    Hi Dave, Thank you for the kind words, I am happy you like it! it was a fun and challenging build. It would have been closer to your design if I had the correct materials. You are welcomed to use the photos and videos as you wish, I would be honored if you added it to your website. Stay tuned...

    Bashed version of the siamese twins

    Thanks Dennis! This is my second engine with zero experience in machining, I don't know if something will work until i try it, to attempt to capture in pictures would be a waste of film batteries :big: I drilled the end of the steel rod, parted off a slice, very much like Firebird (Rich) did in...

    Bashed version of the siamese twins

    Thanks Maryak! I'm afraid the techniques are nothing special, shake n shoot gloss black and a stiff brush for the base and shake n shoot textured flat black for the cyls right out of the can. :-[ Kurt

    1938 "model" WM Briggs and Stratton engine restored

    110v vs 220v

    Most of the equipment I have can be run on 110v or 220v, in a home shop environment what are the advantages/disadvantages? For example, the air compressor runs alot develops 5hp :big: runs @ 2hp ::) motor output is 2.25kw (per lable on motor) Kurt P.S. Been away from HMEM since about May...

    Machine taper adapters

    thanks guys for the suggestions. Mixdenny- that is the closest I have seen, i'll see what more I can find out. Bentprop- (is that air or water?) the chuck has a female JT0 taper and the drill press it is to be used on has a male JT33, apparently the chuck is for a jewlers lathe tail stock and...

    quick change tool posts

    I use feeler gauges i find at flea markets to shim up the cutters in my mini lathe tool holder, I write the gauge thickness on the cutter to save time but the height changes when the tool is ground/modified, would a quick change tool post be a good idea, it looks like they have a knob that...
