Beautiful engines!  I had not seen Steve Kahler's air cooled engine.  Thanks!

Got a start today on the muffler. Some of the smaller parts are ideal for the Sherline equipment so that seemed like as good a starting place as any. Below are the pictures from today. Unfortunately I didn't take any of turning the angles on both the front and back of the muffler parts, but the Sherline lathe compound was used for that on both the outside of the profiles as well as the inside as shown in picture 4. Rather than riveting the two halves together, instead I threaded the back side for 1-72 and used three 1-72 SHCS's to fix the two halves together, making it easier to disassemble if ever necessary. The rest is pretty straightforward. I am excited about making the first few chips on this one!!

Thanks guys. Don, it must have been all your brass on the E&A that got me wanting to make some brass swarf  ;)

Speaking of brass once I seen Steves Panther Pup I just had to order the casting. I have had the plans now for 3 yrs. So Stanta is bringing them to me.

Hey Bill

Good to see a start on the P&W; I will be pulling up a chair and following along with your build. Your projects are always interesting and fun to watch.

Thanks for looking in Vince, Alan, Roger, and Dave!  I got a bit more done today on some of the smaller parts, lath work mostly. First up was the Governor weight, just a simple cylinder of brass 3/8" dia. x 3/8" long with a .125 bore and a threaded hole for a grub screw/thumb screw for adjusting it. The three pictures below a self explanatory with the obligatory mini-mic pic :).

Next up today was the brass Mixer Body, also made from a short length of brass. This will eventually attach to the cylinder head but uses a 12-40 thread and I have neither the tap or die for that size as it isn't very common so will need to order those from MSC before I can thread the thin end of the Mixer Body (photo 1). Otherwise it is finished though. The big (inlet) end of the mixer is tapered using a 60 degree center drill as shown in photo 2. Photos 3,4 & 5 show drilling the holes for the Jet to attach to the bottom side (5-40 thread), and for the needle valve to attach to the top side (1-72 thread).
