Hello Folks

Today I finished my latest project - a mini belt sander - made as an attachment tool for my bench lathe.

I've found that it has been a while since an update on my work of the 5 pcs. steam engines.

Today i finished the steam cylinder and steam chest part of the project, these latest parts where a rewarding complicated job to do on manual machinery. wink

When we are at it...

This will take a lot of tea if it was to be made in my workshop

Today I mounted the crosshead on my 5 pcs. series of an Inclined Steam Engine.

As something new I intend to sell some of my engines after finishing the project.

When I use the piercing saw, it is 5 strokes (of course pulling) then candle wax, 5 stroke candle vax, 5 strike candle vax , well you got it right ....

Makes the blade last for very long, think i might be combination of cooling and lubricating the blade this way.

Hi Roy

I've just looked around for broct escapement's, and can see that you are absolutely right - thank you for pointing this out for me.

I think the friction in the escapement will be reduced when I turn around the pallets.

Thanks again

Hello folks

Thank you very much, I will go ahead in the workshop.

Wish you all a merry christmas.

Hi John

On the M & P website I find the following for the partnumber 0321 204015 :

HOLE END CLOCK MAINSPRING 20mm x 0.40mm x 40mm You will find other sizes of mainspring in chapter 15. Clock-grade steel.e

I believe this means that the thickness (Force) i 0.4 mm and that the width (barrel height) is approximately 20 mm, this leave the 40mm to be the inside diameter of barrel

Is this correct ?


17/12/2012 17:36:20

Thanks to you all, now I can go on with experimenting The last 40 mm dims. is that the outer diameter of the coiled spring when supplied ?


17/12/2012 11:13:52

Hi Roy

Thanks for your reply.

Exactly... Thats why I would like to know the approximate dimension, and experiment in the work shop
