Steve,

Really great work.

Is that a 10 cylinder, 2 stroke rotary engine I see in your in tray ?

Tweakie.

That's a 9 cylinder radial that I made from Cox .049 cylinders. Cox .049 were real popular single cylinder engines when I was a kid.

Brilliant Steve, I can just imagine the noise that would make.  ;D

(I still have a couple of those little cox engines).

I guess I need to brush up on Lazycam...I can't even engrave with it yet, course I don't have the mill yet. Hope I can learn on the fly.

I switched to CamBam about a year ago or so. I have nothing bad to say about Lazycam but i wouldn't have been able to do the blower pattern with it so I needed something a little more powerful. Very happy with CB so far.

Finished the rods today. I used the CNC machine to cut the rod's profile while fixtured.


The rod plate was put on the fixture. The bushings extend thru the rod and into the fixture so the screws are not relied upon to hold the rods in place.

Today was fun time in the garage. Did nothing I was supposed to do and everything I wanted to do. I made an adapter plate that will go onto the intake manifold for the blower. The stock intake manifold will not work for this so I will eventually make another one.




Then I made this. It's a long way from being done. Took 7-1/2 hours to make this from a 2-1/2 X 3 inch block.




Then I made the adapter for the duel carb. Screwed up the ears on the flange that the carb sits on. Should have been rotated 90 degrees. I originally had a single carb facing forward. When I went duel carb I forgot they only fit side saddle. Should be fixed in the plans.






That was my day!
