Looks great Marty, can you do me a favour and include something in the pics to give me a sense of scale and how did you make that base?

I dont know about "rippingly" Unc, about the only thing getting ripped is me!

Gordon.
Hopefully the shot below will give an idea on the size.



Overall height to the top of the frame adjuster levers nuts is 3.25"
The brass cabinet is 1.385" wide and 1.350" tall (above the wood base).
The base is 2.135" wide at the very bottom..

The base was made using a "cove" bit (3/8") in my router table and forming the radius on the base up side down. Then just flipping it over.

I'm still "thinking" how I am going to do the tapered & flared base for the grinder!... Huh.....

Thanks for looking guys!

Hello Marty,

I like your machine, especially since I had such an engine is slightly smaller in the original possessed.
I think it's a great idea to build such a machine in the model.

All done!





The prototype pics i have seen show it mounted to a slab of 2x4's bolted together on edge.
This is something I may do after i get the placement all sorted out.
Thanks

Marty,

I really do like the way you paint these pieces .... just looks right!


Can I be picky, the handle on the side just does not look right to my eyes .... don't ask what it is ...... maybe it should be formed from a flat strip and the bolted through the door Huh

The other suggestion I would make is that where the fixing bolts go there should be , what I call bolt stand-offs to raise them up from the tapered base so that the bolts go straight down vertically and have a true horizontal surface to bare down .............. you see them on Ford Model T and A cylinder heads

I'll shut up now and head for my own little corner

Looks great Marty!

My only comment would be to add some shavings.  My (real) saw gets a line of shavings all over it roughly in line with the blade.  They get stuck in the oil it slings, forming a goopy mess that's perfect for cutting you as you try to clean it up.
Ask me how I know...

Overall fantastic, Marty! I espesially like your paint jobs. How do you create the blank areas with the rusty stains?

Thanks everyone!

My paint jobs are a bastardized version of the "hairspray" technique.
I basically do the following;
Basecoat with solvent paint; brown /black
Topcoat with acrylic
Wait about 7 - 10 minutes and scrub with a swab or paintbrush dipped in alcohol where the "wear" "should" be.
If I take too much off I go back with a cosmetic sponge and the color.
I add additional rust spots with a cosmetic sponge, almost a dry brush but dabbing.
Scratches with a tiny brush.
Final tweaks are with powders and artists oils depending on weather I want a dusty or oily end result.
Sometimes (like on this model) there are areas of each so i got to be careful.

Once i get it installed i will add the requisite shavings and oil puddles.

Gordon, I had thought about both items you mention but it was time to be done and move on. May be i will revisit the machine after I get its home finished......
