Re: Walschaert Eccentric Key

Thanks to all who replied. Bill Shields, this design is based on Billy Van Brocklin's drawings I obtained from John Kurdzionak of Friends Models. Billy's drawings do not specify keys. However, I'm machining the parts on a Haas VF-0E CNC mill, and want to use the accuracy of the mill to place the key...

Walschaert Eccentric Key

I am working on the design of a 4-4-0 based on Bill Van Brocklin's No 28. It will use Walschaert valve gear. I plan on keying the eccentric to the crank pin. My question is as follows. Is it common to also key the crank pin to the wheel to prevent the pin from rotating and throwing the valve timing ...

Re: Modeltec magazine - full listing of issues

I wrote to the C&O Historical Society to ask about their possible ownership of "Modeltec" magazine, and this was their reply: C&O Historical Society does not have rights to Modeltec Magazine, nor any connection with it. The website you referenced in your message says we do. This is entirely incorrec...

Re: Modeltec magazine - full listing of issues

Heaven forbid!! I have thought about that problem. Part of the work of the IBLS has been to preserve live-steam related websites that have disappeared. This is accomplished largely with the help of archive.org. Other than making sure we have a succession of IBLS Secretaries, how else can we preserve...
