Hi Achim,
The crankcase is coming along great! Those covers give it a very industrial look.

John, Don and George, thank you very much for watching and taking the time to give positive comments.
Progress is slow currently, due to a nice summer starting and some necessary gardening.
Kind Regards
Achim

Hi Terry, thanks for watching and never underestimate your mind, please.
It is mostly able to achieve more than you are ever able to think about.

Next part of the door hinge story is done.
These parts are really tiny in my eyes.
The pin hole is 1,5 mm and they are made from a 4 x 4 mm brass bar.
8 pieces are needed, so I have cut material for 10.
I have found an old fixture in the shelf, something I have used for the Snow build earlier, similar to what I know under the term "finger plate".
This thing was modified to do the job.

Here a short video of the simulation, followed by the real job with the CNC mill.




Kind Regards
Achim

Some epoxy glue and the door hinges are in a fixed position.
