First set out of the main assemblies of my Corliss, based on the MEM drawings

Flywheel looks machined from solid - is that what you did?

I keep wondering if I'll ever put together the time or commitment to tackle the complexity of a Corliss... surpriselaugh

Thanks for the comments.

yes, one of my cheats on the MRM drawings, the flywheel is from a billet. Stretched my S7 and BCA to accommodate it but I am happy how it has turned out. For the first time I finish bored for the crankshaft and have been rewarded for what looks like a wobble free flywheel.

Wow, Someone who's got a BCA as their milling machine!

Which version is it, out of curiosity (I've got the one I inherited from dad, but it's a project rather than a machine tool at the moment).

You are obviously using it to produce excellent work...

Hi Mark

It is a Mk 111 about 35 years old, serial number is xxxxxE so in imperial. I managed to get it in good condition, looks like it is on its original belt and most importantly with some accessories including collets. I love it, only wish it was a bit bigger as we do with most of our machine tools.
