  It's a Schilling technique and pretty damn brilliant.   I'll end up with a straight accurate crank with hardened bearing surfaces.

Where can one see and read how to do it?
I have his book but it is not very informative how to actually machine parts.

Thank You for the link that made me not the least wiser.
I still do not understand how You get undivided connecting rods on the crankpins.
I want to make a side-by-side two stroke crankshaft with undivided lower conrods.

Thats easy, you have to put the conrods on the Pins before you press the parts together(or whatever conection method you Chose).


On my Bugatti build i have split conrod but the needle bearing are mountet before Pressing the parts together.
