Yes...........great documentation and pictures!  :ThumbsUp: Still seems like a bit of "black magic", but then I've thought the about other machining things, until I actually waded through the process of doing it.

Thanks guys! If it doesn't work out as a differential, it will make a great steampunk carousel for the shop elves!

Hang about....were did that new boat pop up from?
Zee we have been duped!
Those elves are on double time....ether that or they are running two shifts! Boat & gears at the same time!

Oh the gears do look the part! The elves will be keen to nick them!

Cheers Kerrin
Get excited and make something!

Actually the boat was on very slow schedule. I won the fiberglass hull in the raffle at the big RC submarine meet in Carmel Indiana last August, got the cabin made last fall, and it sat unfinished for the last 5 months till I finally got the running gear mounted last week. Still need to put in the cockpit controls and the lobster pot winch and pulley.
To paraphrase Monty Python, the elves responsible for finishing this boat have been sacked!
Just in time too, I was just given a kit for a Delphin minisub...

Made up the output shafts from the differential this afternoon, simple bit of turning. Started with some 3/8" bar stock, turned one end down to 1/4" for the drive sprockets, and drilled a 1/4" hole in the other end to slip over the ring gear axle. The large bevel gears were attached to the axle shafts with some loctite retaining compound.






All turns freely, next up will be the frame and bearing blocks that hold the differential unit to the bottom of the main frame.

No updates for a couple of days, we had a big wind storm, just got power back here. Some progress on the differential plate though, pics later. One other nice thing about the Sherlines, they draw just a little power so the generator was able to power the shop as well as the rest of the house.
No damage here, but many huge trees and power poles down around town.

Hope you didn't suffer any damage Chris. Power outage is inconvenient but with a generator even that is tolerable.

I wouldn't worry much about Chris. He's got elves.
We need to figure out how he's able to retain such good elves. What are we doing wrong?
Seems' like all the elves and gnomes we have are into stealing and gas lighting us.

Seriously though...glad you didn't have damage and hope the same for your neighbors.

Note the question. What are we doing wrong? Not...what is he doing right?

Those gears look insanely good.

@Kerrin...if we continue watching...we'll continue being duped.  ;D

No damage here, I had taken out the row of giant pine trees behind the house two years ago, good thing since pines were uprooting all over town. A row of power poles near here that they replaced after the wind storm two weeks ago all broke again today! About 150000 houses with no power here, couple of the towns north of here are under states of emergency, stuff down everywhere.
My generator paid for itself yet again!

Two secrets.
1 mint chocolate chip cookies
2 I look a bit like an elf, short, full beard, heavy set. They think I am on of them.


Okay, three things, shops full of fun tools on both floors and in basement.
Oh, four things, a steam train layout in the basement for them to play with!

Time for pics dude.
No. Not pics. It's movie time!!!

How many other secrets do you have? No. Don't answer that. Could lead to a TV special.
