|Thread: Milling attachment for Warco wm290vf|
Thanks for your thoughts guys. It looks like a proper mill is the way to go.
I am thinking of buying the milling head that fits on the back of the 290vf lathe.
Has anybody got one. what are the disadvantages compared to the full wm16 mill?
|Thread: Bermuda bell / foot operated gong|
Thanks for your replies. The steam car is not subject to IVA regs so the rules about a bell/horn do not apply. The Fire alarm bell idea is one that might bear fruit. I need it to be foot operated with a ding on the down stroke and a dong on the spring return. About 120 to 150mm dia would be the size to go for.
I have started to build the "Steam Traction World" Lykamobile series 2 steam car. The parts for the main chassis arrived just in time for Xmas. Just looking ahead a bit... I fancy a foot operated gong/bell known as a "Bermuda bell" rather than a steam whistle. Some of the original 1901 Locomobile cars use that sort of bell. Looking around the internet, I found a firm in Portugal which makes new bells at around £200 a clang! Any ideas , drawings or suggestions as to the making or acquiring a serviceable bell?
|Thread: Gyro build problem|
Made this same Gyro as a present he other week and had the same problem. The performance was only adequate. I used the flywheel to make a finger engine instead.
|Thread: Warco 290V lathe|
Just awaiting delivery of my own new Warco 290V-F so interested in the result of your enquiry about the motor fan cowl. My shed is a heavy duty site cabin but it does have a wooden floor, so the setting up and levelling might be an " interesting!" task.
