Excellent looking build so far. I enjoy making parts from solid as long as there's not a lot of waste. I have built some things from Jerry's plans, nice drawings and a good fellow to deal with.
LOOKING GOOD JACK :bow: :bow: :bow:
Egads! man. That is a goodly sized engine. Great start to what I know will be a delightful build. Now as for the girlfriend part, are you daft? They're more expensive :wall: and higher maintenance stickpoke than our machines. Don't do it lad. :big:
That's a beautiful engine Jack.
Looks like you have an equally beautiful start on it!
Please keep us updated.

Looks like a good start Jack. Did you mill the base out of solid stock? I'm looking forward to watching your progress and maybe learning a few things.
Its looking great Jack...very nice pictures also. I will be following the thread with much interest.
Looking great Jack!
I'm envious - I hope mine looks half as good. :bow: :bow: :bow:

Nice work Jack!!!..I really enjoy cutting my own gears, it does require total concentration.
Here is a full set of 8 gear cutters. $80AU landed in OZ. ;D
Keep this one quiet, I still want a set and haven't got the cash yet. Thm:
Thanks for the cutter lead. :bow: :bow:
Jack, you mentioned the #2 cutter, but didn't say where it was made. The #3 came from Poland. Could you see a difference in quality of the cutters.
The reason I ask is I purchased several 48P cutters from Traverse and they all came from China. I was building Jerry Howells V-Twin at the time and had a bunch of small gears to cut. I couldn't get the gears to mesh worth a darn. I checked the cutters under a microscope and they had no involute form to them. They were horrible quality. I sent them back to Traverse and ordered a set from McMaster Carr. Just a few $'s more in cost. They came from Poland and were excellent cutters. I made all the gears over again and they worked fine.
