WOW ! THIS IS AWSOME, I JUST RECEIVED MY 1/3 GALLOWAY A FEW DAYS AGO AND STARTED DOING SOME ROUGH MACHINING. THE PRINTS HAVE QUITE A BIT TO BE DESIRED FOR SURE. I'M USED TO PRINTS HAVING TOO MUCH INFORMATION.
GEORGE, I'D BE EXTREMELY INTERESTEDIN YOUR INFORMATION AVAILABILITY. YOU MAY REGRET SAYING TO CONTACT YOU ABOVE !
LETS TALK DEAL ?
ANY THING TOMAKE THIS TASK TURN OUT CLEANER WOULD BE SO SO APPRECIATED TO SAY THE LEAST.
PLEASE EXCUSE THE CAPS, I'M VISUALLY IMPAIRED THESE DAYS AND IT HELPS ME .

GEES, BEEN BACK FOR ONE DAY AND ALREADY I FEEL LIKE I STEPPED ON TOES. I DON'T KNOW IF, WELL YES THEY CAME FROM MINISTEAM.
I'M USED TO HAVING MORE DETAILS ON THE PRINTS I DEALT WITH AS A JOBBER MACHINIST. I DO REALIZE THAT THIS IS JUST THE CASTING KIT AND THERE WILL BE SOME CREATIVITY INVOLVED.
I JUST NEED TO STUDY WHAT I GOT, AND GET AN APPROPRIATE PICTURE IN MIND. REMEMBER WHAT THOUGHTS WENT THROUGH YOUR MIND AT THE FIRST GLANCE ?
THATS WHERE I AM AT, AND BEING VISUALLY IMPAIRED DON'T MAKE IT ANY EASIER.
THANKS FOR INPUT, AND SORRY FOR THE TOES !

IF THEY CAME FROM MINISTEAM I WOULD HAVE THOUGHT YOU WOULD HAVE GOT A SET OF GEORGES REVISED DRAWINGS AS THE ORIGINALS WERE A LOT WORSE. IT WILL SAY ON THE DRAWNGS IF THEY WERE DRAWN BY GEORGE, THE OLDER ONES JUST HAVE RICHARD E SHELLY & SONS ON THEM

IF IT'S ANY HELP THIS IS MY BUILD THREAD DONE WITH GEORGES DRAWINGS WHICH I HAD NO PROBLEMS WITH

THANK YOU GEORGE,
SO FAR I'VE CLEANED UP THE FLYWHEELS, AND NOW I'V GOT THE SLEEVE AT THE TURN AROUND IN THE LATHE. TODAY I THINK I'LL BRING IN THE THERMAL FITMENT DIM'S. I LEFT A FEW ON THE BORE TO HONE IN AFTER I MATE IT TO CYL. MY PLAN, SO FAR, IS TO GET THE BIG PARTS LOOKIN LIKE SOMETHING. I THINK I HAVE ENOUGH MATERIAL NOW, LIKE DRILL ROD AND BRONZE FOR OD'S AND ENDS AND ENOUGH BRONZE TO MAKE A SHINNY ROD.
WHILE LOOKING OVER THE "RED WING 1/4" I BORROWED THE IDEA OF A MAGNETO. I CONTACTED Home of MiniMag Co. TO FIND OUT THAT HE STILL HAD THE MAKINS FOR THE "FMK" OR FALCON MAGNETO KIT AND STILL WANTS TO SELL HIS REMAINING STOCK. SO, I PLAN ON GETTING ONE AND SEEING WHAT IT CAN BE, MAYBE A VISIBLE ADDITION RATHER THAN A HIDDEN ASSET LIKE RCDON'S
WELL, I FINISHED COFFEE AND ITS TIME TO LIGHT THE STOVE IN THE SHOP.

Hi Cogsy,
I know the caps are a little unsettling but it was an accommodation to Criuser.

Oops - I missed the original explanation in his post and I rescind my objection. Thanks for pointing it out George and feel free to continue on with the caps.
