I’ve been steadily plotting away on my little engine. I currently have 28 parts done. Cameron, in the machine shop will be making my master cylinder on the cnc milling center tomorrow. The bronze for the pistons will arrive Friday along with the 100 bolts the assembly will require and the tubing for the air delivery system. There are 29 complex parts left (28 are identical) and the rest will be cut out of a plate and are fairly simple. I have gotten a fair amount of practice using the lathe and will continue to as I finish parts. The only thing left to finalize in the design is how to hold that back axle and the stand. More to come on these in future posts.
The completed parts are:
-6x cylinder rods
Below are some pictures of the building process.
