    KB Draws Steve's V-8

    If I ever get around to making some chips for this beauty, I will change the title of this thread. For now this is where I am at. I have quite a few hours invested in the computer modeling which will pay big dividends when it comes time to make some parts. It also helps me visualize the...

    Kustom KB's Gallery

    I thought I would like to show off my collection of engines and have a page to update as builds are completed. Most of these engines were inspired and/or designed by forum members. It all started about 15 years ago when this thing called the internet came along and I found some designs...

    Why no hobby time for me lately

    I've been wanting to finish my Hoglet; http://www.homemodelenginemachinist.com/index.php?topic=1831.0 But most of my time has been spent with my 18 month old Son (lots of fun) and working on my 55+ year old house (not much fun) I tore out some kitchen cabinets which were built from 2x4's and...

    Radius turning tool vid

    Here is radius turning tool I came across on U-tube. I thought it was a pretty great idea. It looks like he is adjusting the radius by moving the pivot points in T-slots. I suppose a guy could drill indexed holes for preset sizes...

    "Bas" Stirling, a Jan Ridders' design

    I have always wanted an engine that would run off of a tea light. Jan Ridders' "Bas" will fit the bill nicely. I won't get any work done until the Hoglet is put to rest, but for now I just wanted to get some computer modeling practice in; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NOLnUc3QP0 Here is...

    Home Made Bandsaw

    Here is a home made bandsaw, which was built from plywood and a set of castings, in the time before cheap imports were available. I have also been lucky to have been given 6 and a 14 inch bandsaws over the years, so now this old timer has got to go. If any body in the lower mainland wants it...

    Father's Day

    Several years ago I made 4 of these for a co-worker. Last year I received 2 back, just before Father's Day, with the in-lay installed. He did a great job, I kept one and gave the other to my Dad. It is a square for laying out lines around a corner. A couple weeks ago he gave me one of...
