    Small, 3v Buzz Coil Ignition

    The relay was one of the first that showed up on amazon searching "3v relay". They are a pretty small 5 pin pcb relay and reasonable in a 10 pack. It also uses a 0.1 mfd cap (the current one is only 50v ceramic, not sure if that will last?). The coil is from a small stash George had that I...

    Small, 3v Buzz Coil Ignition

    I needed a buzz coil for a little Stove Pipe Domestic I just got from a friend (the Herder engine casting set, with about 4" flywheels). One of the things I always loved about my good friend George Luhr's models what how he hid the coils in a relatively small base and used 2 AA batteries for...

    Machining Valve Stems

    The spark plugs for the 1/8" bore engines are 0-80 thread with a surface gap. George made all these. I will try to snap a picture of the various plugs he made for his array of engines.

    Machining Valve Stems

    Being the current caretaker of George Luhrs collection and many tools, it was a wonderful thing to see and talk about his methods. For valves he was serious about them being good as machined or they were junk. For thin stems he taught me about a tool set flat to the face and machining the final...

    Sold Model Wilton Vise on Ebay

    I'm glad I snagged a casting set last year at Cabin Fever! Looking forward to building mine. The Wilton following is crazy. Glad I grabbed a 2.5" and 2" baby when I did.

    Found this Steam Bike news report and now I want to build one!

    I bought 2 partial build Roper Steam Bikes from Paul Brodie in British Columbia. He finished at least 1. I really should get this project out and push it to a higher priority. Frames, handlebars, and a lot of big parts are done. Needs rhe engine components and wheels. 🤪

    Domestic governors are generally a single weight on a rod with an "eccentric" on the crank. The weight and rod fit in a hole drilled radially out in the rim OR a little angle bracket bolted to the spoke) and there is a spring between it and the flywheel rim (or bracket).
