    Hi all! Sorry for causing stress. I haven't logged into the form for quite a while and didn't know things on #8 had kicked up again.

    The parts are looking great Path :) I've had a number of other activities creep into my life over the last year, but this may get me working on more engines ;)

    Brian,

    Glad to hear that all is well.:):)

    Do you plan on continuing your build on this engine?
    If so, there are parts to be sent to you.
    For me I need to make an eccentric because I goofed-up on one during the fitting. So it will take awhile before I can make a replacement..

    Welcome back.:)

    Got the eccentric set and clevis today. Had forgot they were coming. Very nice, Pat.

    Anybody find 2-56 SHSC at a reasonable price? My local Fastenal wants upwards of $0.25 each, or upwards of $25.00 per box of 100.

    Thanks for the offer, Dave. I only need the 2 for the new parts, I'll try my local Fastenal, if they will sell just 2, 50 cents won't break me. I can't see buying a box of 100, I don't usually make anything that small.
    If they won't do 2, I'll take you up on your kind offer.

    Pat,

    If I had the parts, I would finish assembling the engine. However, please feel free to use the part slated for me to finish yours first. I have plenty of things keeping me busy these days. I'm happy to wait until you get around to making another part some day.

    best...

    Pat, The parts look great just like everyone says. I did notice a problem with my parts however. The eccentric rod is too tight a fit in your parts. All I had to check size with was a 2-56 nut which worked ok. I'm going to make a tapped
    gauge and rework the rods. All of the rest of the parts are finished.

    Chuck, What length of screw do you need, I've got dozens of several lengths
    that were surplus to my last employer. I'm sure there are 3/16, 1/4 and 1/2
    plus smaller quantities of other lengths. I'd be happy to send some to whoever needs them.

    Mike

    Mike, I need 2 ea. 2x56 setscrews about 1/8" long. 3/16" length might fit, but I don't have the parts in font of me to check.

    Chris,


    Page 17 is an assembly page.
    Part details are on page 15 (most of the little ones).
    Item 30-35 are on page 15 and were assigned to rhitee93, which I believe
    have been sent out. I think I have mine anyway. Just checked ... I do have them.

    Except the Cylinder Rod End Bushing, which we have to make ourselves.

    Edit ... rhitee93 also had item #36 page 18, Steam chest cover. (I also have this)

    Brian,

    I was just looking at all your parts ... really look nice. ;);)
    Very shiny ... did you put them in a tumble?
    If so, what was the model and how long did they tumble?

    Thanks,

    Pat

    Chuck ...

    My paper work says you were assigned page 7,
    items 8,9,10, and 11 which I have. :)

    I think you also posted your finished model ...running.
    But some time ago it was "removed" if so would you mind re-posting? :)

    Yup found my missing pieces. The tool box troll slipped them down to the bottom, along with a few other parts too :)

    Pat you do nice work, pieces look good.

    I can't find those pics, but I will take some today and repost. I think I had a video of it running, too. IIRC, I had a problem with timing, but finally got it running.

    Ha, I don't remember what I did, but it probably ran them through a tumbler. Most likely with walnut shells in an old rock tumbler I got as a kid that I still use for stuff like this. Otherwise it would have been my Lyman brass tumbler with corncob media.

    The links were stainless steel, so they polished up well.
