    PM Research Inc. 5BI

    Very nice to see. I'm in the process of finishing the more modern version of this engine with Only a few more bits to go. I agree with the comment about drilling the holes for the main bearing caps. I milled the surfaces flat and superglued the caps in place. I then drilled them from below...

    Idiot Sightings

    50 endmills

    I used some of mine last night machining cast brass. I used an 8mm endmill and it cut well but seem to become blunt quickly. Not as good as the ones I have bought from CTC. I then used a 2mm 2 flute to mill out the bottom of the steam valve in my current engine. It is cast bronze. I snapped the...

    Need Help with PM Research Coke Bottle Engine

    50 endmills

    I have received my order of about $20 worth of these mills. They were quick arriving-less than 2 weeks. Now to try and use them. I bought some 2mm 2 flute end mills to make little slots in the steam chest of my current model under construction. Hopefully they hold up.
