Re: Hand Pump Drawings and Castings

I too find it interesting that person A posts a problem and instead of helping them to solve it, there is always a guy, person B who makes a presumption that they don't know what they are doing or what they want and that he is going to re-direct person A to do everything his way. It happens on every...

Did someone mention Trail and Handling? I see a guy cruising around on this in my neighborhood all the time in heavy traffic. He always looks cool as a cucumber, cutting in and out and around cars.

Re: New Kozo Shay Crankshaft material

Re: Alan Stepney

Sorry to hear that. A few years ago I bought a very interesting 1.5" scale live steam chassis project here in Los Angeles from an antique dealer who knew nothing about live steam (lucky for me). No one around here knew much about it. It turned out to be an 0-4-4 Billinton D3 tank engine with nicely ...

Re: Thinking of posting pictures?

I can't upload a picture. I do not have a "browse" button, only one which reads: Choose File. when I click that, I get to browse my files. I choose a photo that I've have downsized to 800 X 800 and after the downloading-in-progress window disappearsI get a message that the photo is something like 24...

Re: New Kozo Shay Crankshaft material

Thanks to all, I got exactly the information I needed. I am choosing Kozo's one piece turning as I'm intrigued by the method. Dave B thanks for sharing your mishaps as I have a box of "spare" parts that are off-dimensions and full of holes drilled in the wrong places. I'm sure there will soon be a c...

New Kozo Shay Crankshaft material

Hello, everyone, I'm still working on my Kozo Shay in 3/4" scale and am at the point where the next step is to turn that crank in one piece. Kozo suggests "free cutting" stainless steel or "free cutting" steel. I'm assuming that would be #303 stainless. I've never heard the term "free cutting steel"...

Re: Cutting Splines

Thanks Rich, just what I needed. Also I had earlier posted that the suggestion to extend the shaft would be difficult but have now figured out a way that would be easy but might not have explored the idea without the suggestion from Don Young so thank you Don.

Re: Cutting Splines

The shaft splines will match the input shaft gear cluster's internal spline. I think that extending the shaft with splicing would be more work than cutting splines. I just thought that there would be some one out there who has extensive experience with this.

Thanks
