Steve, man that he is, does BOTH SIMULTANEOUSLY! He manages to make killer full-sized miniature parts. (He tried to make miniature miniature parts once, and his eyes are a lil' crossy to this day.) Chris

Made a few more pieces.

Made the rear cover, front cover, and the gear case for the blower.

when you design stuff do you start with an existing design and scale it down or do you just look at something and draw it up n stick it in the machine?

I usually just draw stuff and try to make it look as real as possible. It still has to work so sometimes you can't be exact.

Well Steve (Wasting Time'r or was that time waster) Itís the first time Iíve seen the 1/5 V8 heading & Iíve just spent 1/2 the afternoon reading up on you & your V8 & not working on my stuff, HO WELL sometimes its well worth the pain
Iím no engineer but I sure know when I see extraordinary modelling, bloody fantastic workmanship going on there.
Do have to balance the internals of the motor? Or are the revolutions not that great to have to worry about vibrations.
Keep up the good work
Tim

Worth pointing out here that "wasting time'r" is a standard user title based on post count, after a few posts you can change it yourself to say almost anything(certain rude words get censored of course).

Yet to see anyone stick with the given titles for long enough to see them all though

Awesome Work steve, love that dinky blower cover with the re-inforcing ribs, thats the kind of machine work thats pretty hard for me to do given I have a full machine shop at home but no CNC...(i.e. I have a lathe, vertical mill, pillar drill etc but all manual)

Both!

I do make an attempt to make sure that each piston, rod, combination weighs about the same. I'm not to sure I need to but I do anyway.
