Lovely rotary saw rig, that Peterson mill. You have a marvelous shop!
The scale of this engine is still hard for me to imagine.

Butch, I hate you. What I would give for a supply of ash, oak or walnut. Australian hard woods are some of the best in the world but they are so hard that they can only be worked using tungsten tipped tooling. They play havoc with planners, thicknessers and chainsaws. They also weigh twice what European or American timber does.

I hate you even more for showing your Peterson mill with snow on the ground, Australia is in the grip of a heatwave with temperatures of forty centigrade or more. Lack of national power generating capacity has left us with rolling blackouts as the electricity companies try to balance the load from AC units.

That said, I love that engine and the work you are doing on it. What are you going to use it for? It`s such a work of art and deserves to be put to a good use. Can`t wait to see what you have planned.

Bob

Material clamped down and using simple tools to make precise gaskets. Divider,  scale and punch, those lines are not pencil marks but one, I have one leg of the divider sharpened like a knife.

Hi Butch
Have you ever think to attach a bistury to that leg insted of sharpened it? (I know keep it simple make it work is far quiker, but some air of the finest engineering add for shure value to the WOK)

I'm already scratching my self to see that machine "flinting".
Very nice work.

Butch, I did like you suggested and looked at the weather forecast for your zip code. Tuesday night gives minus 4 Fahrenheit rising to a maximum of three Fahrenheit on Wednesday, ouch. Hope you have plenty of warm clothing and heating fuel. Might be a good time to check the antifreeze in anything water cooled.
Stay safe,

Bob

Wow, the size of that thing is frightening, how big is the crank handle?  Love the skid, great work as usual.
Very sad to hear about the losses to frost damage, not a big problem where I live.

Thanks Butch, please expand on the carburation method when the new technology allows, also please loose the axe it looks like you are cutting gaskets with it!  :laugh:

Wow Butch, I have never seen a system where they have the spark plug in the intake manifold with a valve on the wrong side of things. I wonder how many operators have lost hair, eyebrows etc to a back fire. Please be careful when you try to start this absurdity.
