Great finish Doc, well done, I love the parade of parts, very regimental not a part out of place.

Well you've set the standard now, no going backlaugh.

I suspect you will have no problem maintaining it.

Geoff

Thanks Geoff. I wanted to see all the parts I’d machined together in one place before they got lost in the assembly. It was a satisfying review of all the work Id put in.

Very nice job, I'm more of a clock man but I certainly appreciate your craftsmanship.

Personally I never machine flywheels on an arbor and it is just asking for chatter and a poor finish. If possible hold by the inside of the rim in either 3 or 4 jaw chuck. Stuarts are usually fairly true once cleaned up with files so 3 jaw will do. This way you can machine the face, 1 side, hub face and then finally bore all at one setting ( I don't ream) then just flip it over to do the other side of rim and hub which don't need any concentricity.

Drill drains first, 1/16" or 1.5mm hole will do, threaded hole about 1/16 to 3/32 short of cylinder

What is the thread size for the drain holes? I cannot find any reference to them on the drawing or in the booklet.

You would have to use the smallest Stuart ones which are 5/32" x 40ME

Thank you Jason. Strange how it is missed on both documents.

It's not missed - it's on page 54 of the booklet, and the part number for them, 34-50-71960, is on the bottom right table ( "Additional Items For This Model"  )on the assembly drawing.

Just been browsing your build thread and what a great result! I like the way you overcame problems and cleverly sorted them out.

And those finished photos should be in the Stuart catalogue!

Thanks Ian! Too kind - Most of the issues I had were resolved just by asking questions on here. Looking back, it was pretty straightforward, but all the same daunting for a beginner.
