    Sold Model Wilton Vise on Ebay

    Nice looking vise. I made a set of serrated jaws like that for mine too. I also made a set of plain jaws and find that I use those most of the rime. I made a scale power arm and heavy base and find I use it often for fiddly detail work.

    What have you been doing today?

    Got my 1/8 scale Rider Ericsson running for the first time! Still lots to do, but it runs!!

    Time for a new Horizontal Hit and Miss engine

    Brian, I sure enjoy your designs and builds. Amazed at how quickly you go from “I’m bored“ to having a running engine. Schmuck ups and redirects are just the way it goes sometimes. Was in Barrie once about 20 years ago and traded an Amco shaper for a tuba (long story here). Spent 3-4 weeks...

    Mery Explosive Engine

    Colin, enjoying your pictures and explanations. Sure are a lot of different ways to get the job done. I’ve started my next project; 1/8 scale Meyers Ryder Ericsson. Think I’m in for a challenge!

    Mery Explosive Vapor Engine: Getting 'Er Running

    Carl, I run with the Flywheel Supply buzz box (have used S/S electronic buzz coil with no problems on other engines) and just use a 1# propane tank. Tank seems to be 3-4 psi when full but my engine is running fine now and the gage shows less than 2 psi. karl PS are you the Carl that did a cam...

    Need to replace electrical switch on my 818P Jet metal bench lathe with milling head

    On the Emco machine high speed can only be engaged when the machine is already running in slow speed. Pushing on the high button when the machine isn’t running will not do anything, won’t move at all.

    Need to replace electrical switch on my 818P Jet metal bench lathe with milling head

    This switch looks similar to the one on my Emco Maier V10P (70’s vintage too). That switch offers forward/reverse with low/ hi speeds and an on button for the mill motor. There is one “off” button that cuts power to the lathe or mil motor. If you join the Groups.IO [email protected] |...

    My Dad's Shop

    As a former board of directors member of the NAMES organization I would say this is exactly the type of collection that should be displayed. Engine building is a hobby and all levels of models should be displayed. The devil is in the details and all these engines run (most without any detail...
