That is one beautiful filer table! Damn, now I might have to take a 2d look at the small  Harig at my used machinery dealer.
Yes, I'm impressed with the wrung Jo blocks.
Well done.

Vern

Best,
Stan

Big E,  That is pretty dear for the Sherline motor and controller, but mine (both of them) have functioned flawlessly for going onto 17 years. Only thing I ever had to do was replace the on/off toggle switch on one of them. Plenty of power too for that die filer.

Bill, Sunday and Monday are maintenance days,  fire starts on Tuesday night through Saturday noon  :facepalm:. I was kinda hoping for something about like the Sherline motor without the "name brand" price. Vern, thanks. Just think about two mating surfaces on an engine that flat,  perfect seal every time.  With a decent spin fixture , grinding valves,  and making odd size gage pins would be doable. I'm sure Fred would help you move it in  :stir:. Y'all come back to see us. :cheers:

Have you thought about something like a treadmill motor. If you watch closely you may even find one on the side of the road :)

As for ground surfaces on engines sealing, I found that I still got leaks on the Joy engine.  These were fairly large parts, so smaller ones might seal better.  I'll be interested in your results.

KVOM, I had wondered about that, actually, I was just trying to egg Vern on all I could :stir: :stir:. On the engine I built for the Cyclone I did have the heads and exhaust manifolds surfaced and the were bolted up with no gaskets and sealed fine. However, I think that has a lot to do with different expansion rates. :shrug:

Are those gage blocks wrung on that plate?    Just noticed that they are gage blocks!
