Model "Muley" Sawmill
« on: September 04, 2013, 11:59:48 PM »
This is a video of the Odds and Ends hit and miss engine I built this past winter, driving the sawmill I designed and built last year, thru the clutch I designed this winter. It is running a new sawblade that Jim Dunmyer sent me. He has built this sawmill and exhibited it at a number of shows in USA, and done some experimenting to see what blade would cut with the least amount of drag on the engine. The sawmill works like a charm. The new design of clutch seems to work perfectly with no drag at all on the engine, when engaged or disengaged. The Odds and Ends engine (designed by Philip Duclos) works very well . Right at the very end of the video, where it quits going into "miss" mode, the engine had warmed up and was running a bit rich. After I was finished the video I turned the needle in about 1/4 turn, and the engine speeded up at the leaner setting and went back into its hit and miss cycle. ----Brian Rupnow

Ziggar--There has to be something wrong with the equipment you are trying to view it with. Perhaps a setting? 20,000 other people in the world have been able to view it on photobucket from the link I posted. I am not able to post it on Youtube.---Brian

Brian, I don't know what the problem is, however, I can't view the video either. I get your "still" bucket shots just not the video. I've had this problem with numerous videos on my iPad, however, they play great on my desk top. Must be an OS thing.

Hi Brian,

That is a great accomplishment. Would your own engine power that sawmill? If not, I do have the Duclos book.

I for one would be very interested in the clutch and sawmill plans.

Cheers,

Tom (in lLindsay)

Brian, really appreciate you trying and successfully uploading your video to youtube
so much better than that infernal photobucket

youtube was built purely for video
and photobucket, well, the name gives it away really   :)

just watched your video
im greatly impressed
love the fact that a model engine is actually doing something other than running under no load

Wagonmkr--The Rupnow engine would power the sawmill with no problem. The following links will get you both the clutch and the sawmill.---Brian

Brian, THANK YOU!

I will print out the plans and get a list of materials so I can make a start as soon as I get back from holidays.

Cheers,

Tom
