Steve,
No commentary was needed with that picture! Crank looks great.

--Tim

didn't have the mental capacity to comment. Started on it last Sunday. Worked on it a few hours every night and finished it today. About 20 hours and that is the third so counting the first 2 tries i'm closer to 40.

Hi Steve,
The crank looks great. Once you get a system down you think to yourself, "now that wasn't so darn hard." Not that you want to make another one right away after 3 tries.

Excellent  :ThumbsUp: :ThumbsUp: I can almost smell the exhaust.

How are the internal radiuses on the balance weight webs machined, with a ball nose end mill?
Best regards

Actually I do want to make another one for another project I have in mind. I was thinking about doing it now while i have my head straight. I must be nuts!

Yes, I used a ball mill.
