1/3 Scale IHC Famous
« on: December 07, 2017, 03:54:16 AM »
Hello and good morning.

Here are the the first pictures of our IHC Famous in 1/3 scale.
It's build of the OnderStoom Plans from the Nederlands.

My Father beguns to build the steel parts and I begun to build the cart from ash-tree.

Regards Toby

Hi Toby, so you are building three of these at the same time?  Beautiful work so far and I love the joinery work on those Ash bases too!!

Hello,

Bill, yes, we build tree of it.
One for my Father, one for me and the last one, if the others don't run well.  ;)

Today my Father had finished the crankshafts and I made some woodworkings again.

Question, how should I treat the wood so that it becomes oil and gas resistant?
Should I also dye it a little darker?

The last pictures shows the original drawing of the Cart and my drawing in Inventor.

Regards Toby

And here is the pipe I want to use for the Cart Wheels.
It's 114x10 mm.

I tend to use an oil finish such as "danish oil" or more recently one of the oils which also contain wax such as Osmo Poly-x. This would be a similar German product, they also do the Danish oil. Both easy to apply but make sure you wipe off any excess oil after about 15mins as any left sitting on the surface will not dry and you will have a sticky surface.

Today I make the fist "rear axle support", is it the name of it  ::) .

I used my CNC Mill and mill it of 3mm brass.

Very nice work on the axle support Toby. The brass will look very nice too. As for wood finish, I usually use a solvent based wood stain such as Minwax over here in the USA. This is a water thin stain you can either brush on or apply with a cloth and is available in many shades depending on the base wood you are staining. That is followed by 2-3 coats of a polyurethane gloss finish from a spray can. This has held up well for me against oil and fuel.
