Got the con rod done today. Didn't take a lot of pics but the standard process...yada yada.  I used a sacrificial plate to drill the two holes once everything else was done ( photo 1). Photo two shows the linkage from the crankshaft to the crosshead and connecting to the piston. Photo 3 shows a family shot including the cylinder and valve train. Getting down to the final few parts and finishing the main frame.

Hello Bill,

All those castings sure look clean and lack of any porosity. Project is looking good.

Have a great day,
Thomas

Thanks Thomas. These are a nice set of bronze castings. I have had this set for a long time and just getting around to it.  As I have said before I wish PMR still offered all bronze casting sets but perhaps the cost is prohibitive these days. I much prefer them to some of the more recent sets with cast iron castings.

Nice family shot.  :ThumbsUp:

Looks like some parts got cropped out.  ;D
