Agree. There's plenty of meat there to work with. Don't forget to change the drawings to match, though.  :Jester:

Getting very close to the sea trials! Did get that oopsy out, but then the arm disappeared under the table anyway. Fitted with a 5/32" chain saw file for testing purposes (the easiest adapters to make  ;) )

I am watching with great interest to see the first swarf made.

Being a fan of wielding the Mk1 hand file I am looking forward to hearing how good this is  ;).

Thanks folks. I have high hopes for it Jo, as Mr A. Ritis won't let me wield a file with quite as much gusto as in days of yore!

Nice job Tel  :ThumbsUp: - You can get started on Die Filer Mk2 while shiping this one to me for exhaustive quality checking  :LittleDevil:

Kind regards, Arnold
Building an engine takes Patience, Planning, Preparation and Machining.
Procrastination is nearly the same, but it precludes machining.
Thus, an engine will only be built once the procrastination stops and the machining begins!

Pretty darn nice, Tel.  I like making things out of structural steel.  Cheap and strong!

 :D Cheap enough, I have around $0 invested in this so far!

Sorry Arnold - I couldn't possibly send it out until it has been thoroughly tested - that shouldn't take more than 30 years (with luck)
