In photo #1 you can see the (2) pieces of 1.00 X 1.00 cut to length. Photo #2 shows the set screw holes laid out and the holes being drilled. Photo #3 shows starting the 3/8-16 tap in the drill press with photo #4 showing finishing the thread with the tap handle by hand...


Photo #1 shows the (4) set screw holes all de-burred. Photo #2 shows a 45 deg. chamfer on (2) sides of each bar. Photo #3 shows how the tool clamp bars look on the backing plate. Photo #4 shows the bars all welded to the backing plate...


Now the tool holder is put back in the lathe. These (3) photos show turning the OD of the tool holder down to size...


Photo #1 shows the tool holder set up in the mill and the inside of the holder trued up. Photo #2 shows what the milling came out like...


I was unhappy with the quality of the welds on the inside so I put in (4) 3/8-16 shcs to insure when the tool bit was clamped with the set screws it didn't pull a part...


With the tool holder completed it was time to set it up on the Lucas HBM. These (4) photos show the new tool holder, support bar, and outboard bear support all set up. We're almost ready to make the first cut...


Because the 10 HP Bovaird & Seyfang cylinder has a blind bore, I needed to seup a indicator to know when I was at the end of the bore. This photo shows an indicator setup I used to do this...


I shifted gears for a few minutes and started to work on a boat trailer part. Photo #1 shows the original part. I needed to make another one twice as long with another set of holes. Photo #2 shows cutting a retangle tube to the proper length. Photo #3 shows the tube set up in the vertical mill for cutting off / milling one side of the rectangle tube...


The first (2) photos show milling each side down to cut the top off. Photo #3 shows the top cut off. Notice how the tube material bent up when milled off the tube. Photo #4 shows milling the (2) vertical sides to the proper height...


Photos #1 & #2 show drilling the holes in the channel. After some de-burring, photo #3 shows the completed part for the boat trailer...


The boring of the Bovaird & Seyfang cylinder has started. Photo #1 shows the first pass through the bore. This pass proves out all my numbers from the measuring and indicating / setup done before hand. Photo #2 shows the entire machine setup. Photos #2 & #3 show what the new bore is looking like after a few passes...

04/19/06 - 04/23/06
My Oldest son Joseph and I went to the Coolspring Power Museum to assemble the Swan crosshead parts that I had previously done some machine work on and made new parts for. Photo #1 shows Joe getting things ready for setting up the crosshead. Photo #2 shows the bed plate crosshead ways cleaned up and the new studs tightened into place. Photo #3 shows the crosshead put on the bed plate ways. Photo #4 shows Joe tightening the connecting rod nut after both crosshead top ways were shimed...


This is a photo of a shelf we put up to store some of the oil and parts needed to run the Swan at the shows. This helps to keep things organized...


These next series of photos show what the crosshead looks like all assembled and setup. The Swan is now ready for running at the next show...




A friend stopped over and needed some holes drilled for an engine cart he is building. These (2) photos show drilling a .625 diameter hole in the axle support and the pivot block...


Photos #1 & #2 show taking the last pass through the bore on the 10 HP Bovaird & Seyfang cylinder. Photo #3 shows cutting a slight lead in / chamfer on the new bore to aid in assembling the piston and rings...


Photo #1 shows what the new bore looks like. Photo #2 shows what the chamfer looks like on the new bore...


In the first photo the Sunnen hone is assembled and setup. Photo #2 shows the hone in action...


After wiping out and cleaning up the bore, you can see what it looks like in the first photo. In photo #2 you can see the cross hatching. The new bore is now completed on the 10 HP B&S cylinder. Now for the Piston rework...

04/24/06 - 04/27/06
In this next series of photos I am making a craddle / nest for a water pump. This photo shows cutting some of the flat stock in the power hacksaw...


Photo #1 shows a 1" thick plate mounted in the (4) jaw chuck for drilling and boring a 4.000" diameter hole in the center. Photo #2 shows drilling a 2.000" diameter hole. Photo #3 shows the hole opened up to 3.375" diameter with a spade drill...


In the first photo here the hole is bored to the finish size. Photo #2 shows the completed 4.000" diameter hole...


The next step is to cut the plate in (2) pieces. This photo shows cutting the plate in two on the DoAll bandsaw...


Photo #1 shows the holes all laid-out for drilling. Photos #2 - #4 show the holes being drilled in the drill press...


This photo shows the holes all drilled in the (4) parts...


After some more cutting on the bandsaw the parts are then welded up. This photo shows the completed parts...

04/29/06 - 04/30/06
On Saturday the 29th, I received the 10 HP Bovaird & Seyfang piston back from the metal spraying shop. This photo shows the piston setup in the lathe, in the (4) jaw chuck and the OD turned to size...


Photo #1 shows truing up the right side of the piston ring grooves. Photo #2 shows all (4) grooves trued up...


Next the left side of the ring grooves are trued up. This is were the groove width will be determined for all the ring grooves. The first photo shows this. Photo #2 shows all the ring grooves completed...


This photo shows the new ring grooves and OD all completed. The next step will be to order the new piston rings...
