Hi All

Here is a ruff drawing of the Worthington B3 feed water pump that will be used on the engine. It is around 8" tall.

I finished drilling the holes for the smoke box support and the pilot step attachment. The next step is to make some alignment fixtures and then assemble the frame.

Nice model, I'm going to build one of the BL at some point for one of my engines. Would you share the file?
I work in solidworks 2014.

I still need to attract the side frames to the mill table and drill the cross members. But I will have something to show at the next February meet at Ridge Live Steamers.

Hi All


I have decided to have scale pedestal binders cast in steel. I am getting close to ludacris scale.

That will let me get one step closer to finishing the frame.
