    Rudy Kouhoupt Copperhead Steam Roller

    No, my bad, this was a silly loop right back here. I popped into the middle and didn't realize this thread had started in 2014. See flat forehead. Given the lack of plans and the prominent place it had in his home, I suspect he did it as a personal project and any plans were in his personal...

    Linux "Q4OS"

    Everything has a learning curve and when I was in professional development in the US Army we all know the first day, or more, would be a vocabulary lesson. The Infantry and Artillery still can't agree on what "destroyed" means, but my view point is if you aren't close enough for it to shoot back...

    plans for a steam engine for a model of the African Queen

    There are two African Queen threads on the site. I understand this thread really isn't about the original engine, but because my father in law is an big fan of the movie, I wanted to share the article. Then I decided to check Wikipedia and found two separate articles on the boat, This article...

    African Queen

    2021 update after the subject was discussed on another thread. I decided to check Wikipedia and found two separate articles on the boat with several original source citations. This article on the movie claims the L.S. Livingston "had been a working diesel boat for 40 years". This article on the...

    hauling a small mill

    "Most" 440 motors are capable of running on 220. Not difficult to switch the wires, and will give you an opportunity to see what shape the insulation is in.

    hauling a small mill

    I was coordinating for a wrecker a few weeks ago for a 10EE. The driver who wasn't able to take the job mentioned the necessity of finding someone who either really knew or wouldn't argue over how to rig it. The BB2 is very small. There is no lifting eye, and I wouldn't hang one by the table. I...

    hauling a small mill

    I have two BB4. Hauled the last one home laying down on the non control side in the back of a Honda CRV. Got it out sliding on a ramp on furniture skids onto a pallet jack to the garage, then onto pipe. Tire will be fine, but I advise a pallet so you can stram the mill the pallet. I learned...

    WTB 7 inch metal shaper, Atlas 7B, South bend or others

    I had an instructor at the Army Logistics University who was a past president of the Military Vehicle Preservation Association. He had gotten tired of Jeeps etc. so his project at the time, and this was the late '90s, was one of these shops. At least the tools etc. that went in a van. I did a...

    Putting some grip (stippling) on an aluminium drive pulley.

    No, true story. Go figure on how that shaft got worn away, but I saw it. May be over-kill for the topic at hand, don't want to contribute to this going anymore awry, was just a cautionary tale.

    Putting some grip (stippling) on an aluminium drive pulley.

    I was a pilot & logistician in the US Army and once a maintenance tech. Long story . . . Whenever I heard someone say "it'll be ok" I knew with 100% surety they weren't planning on being there when the fecal matter started spraying. Once turned down an aircraft when the mechanic, who had...

    Autodesk Fusion 360 or other free software?

    Thanks. I hate learning new GUI and simply won't make time to learn what to me are non-intutive. This looks pretty straight forward. Appreciate the insight. I tried one thing in LibreCad then just knocked it out in Draw. Too many other things on my plate.

    Autodesk Fusion 360 or other free software?

    Sorry if I missed any earlier comment. Anyone have experience with DeltaCAD? 2D, it is limited to DWG, .DXF, and .DXB files, but is also "stand-alone" based on a licensed personal copy of the application. They do mention "True 32 bit program for improved performance." so obviously not 64. Sadly...
