Hi
I had a couple of ours tonight in the shop and begin with the flyweels.
Decided to mill them out ruffly first and so I could fasten them to the inside first in the lathe.
Its to small, and hope they will go intto the chuck with the outer jaws.
But..bullsh..it fails some millimeters and I tryed to turn the jaws of but they was to hard th_wtf1

Hi and thanks boys!!
Until now it have work good and I´m waiting for the castiron to the liners and som more.
To make the cylinders and it start to look somthing is the funniest!
Bård: make a few more. You now " She makes it, she takes it for a few dollars more"
Love Smokie!
However I can not get the brass ring ready in my lathe it to small unless I dont by a bigger chuck.
I will wait to we get power to our big Storebro at my work.
I have not got the first issue nr 10 that the plan was in yet and dont now what is in it about this engine but I now want to proceed with the crankshaft.
What is the best order in progress or how to say???
Regards
Ove :bow:

I like the start you have made on the hoglet. I have the plans and am getting the materials together so I can make one once I get the confidence up. I'll be watching this build :)

Just a note for anyone building this on a small lathe , instead of doing as Ove has done and using brass plate to make the flywheels, obtain a short length of hollow cast bronze and that way the outside, inside and one face can be machined by holding in a 4" chuck, swap it end for end and do the second flywheel. Then saw down the middle and just face off the saw cuts still holding buy the inside.

The bronze is also heavier than brass thats why its specified.
