I was planning to come this summer to meet an old colleague and visit the Deutsches Museum  but work (in China) and the weather got in the way. Hopefully next year  :)
Best regards

Hi everybody, we have a wooden base plate. After checking with some sample tiling, it seems that my aluminum sub base plates are in the grid of the tiles.

Hi Don,
Hi Bill,
thanks for following along.
Some extra shop time and some progress. I have made this tiny bushes for the later fixation of the crank shaft bearing blocks.
To train my skills, I have also made some plates/dummy bearing blocks for each sub base. I have one more than the original drawing shows.
These plates have been used for masking during sand blasting and powder coating.
Here my EUR 20,00 sand blasting cabinet.
Finally one sub base in position, waiting for the bearing block.




Kind Regards
Achim

Hi Achim

I love these homemade tools.  So, in your homemade blasting cabinet, is that an airbrush you are using and if so, do you put your blasting material in the airbrush reservoir?

Hi Vince, it is a special sand blasting gun.

You can get it from the UK or China or may be also in Malta.

Thanks for the info.  Everyday I learn new things about this hobby.

At that price I would not even bother to look for that here because it will surely be more expensive.

Hi everybody, looking out of the window in the rooftop I can see the mountains (Alps) and there is a lot of snow since last week already. My Snow engine has some bearing blocks in the meantime. Nothing special so I will attach some pictures only.

Shrink fitting bearings in the domestic oven, a brave man!

Coming along  :ThumbsUp: Snow is not quite down to our level yet.

Achim I like the way you made all three pillar blocks and using your toaster oven for a bearing warmer is awesome. Nice work all the way around.
