Still doing this between other things, but managed to finish up the pulley and flywheel except for the grubscrew holes. Not a lot to show from a machining standpoint but a few interim and finished pictures of both are attached below.

Nice work. I’m sensing the beginnings of “settling in” .  :popcorn::DrinkPint:

As in getting your new shop together?  ;D  :stickpoke:

Hey. You've poked me enough times. It's all about what goes around comes around.  ;D

Zee, first few days are more like getting dogs to the vet, finding a place to put all the crap I brought home from my office, and other non-shop renovation things. The renovation is going to take a while, new roof, heat pump, and a lot of junk to get rid of there too. I will start a new thread on that shortly including pics of the good, the bad, and the ugly  :lolb:

I'm still following along Bill, it's nice to see you making progress. I've always rather liked these engines so I'll be interested to see it running  :)

A couple more things done on this one yesterday and this morning. The frame casting needed some clean up for parting lines and flash around the cut out areas which was done using a small sanding drum in the Foredom and a small burr for the smaller areas. The results are shown in photos 1 and 2. 

Next was the lower head casting which is straightforward lathe work as shown in the next three pictures. The final picture shows the lower head in place on the too of the main frame. The mounting holes will still need to be drilled as well as the two tapped holes for attaching the packing gland.
