Hate to hear you're laid-up.  Get well soon, I want to see this beam engine finished and running!

Get well soon Willy. I was in the same position a year ago. Now well into recovery the steroids they gave me gave me nearly every side effect in the book. Finished them at last,,thank goodness. Am back in my shop making scrap out of perfectly good bar stock :thinking: :headscratch: One bright side, I gave up smoking, the money I save all goes into workshop :cartwheel:  :old: :DrinkPint:

Hi Willy, good to hear that you are home.  You will miss the nurses, but itís never good to need to know them professionally.

Thinking about stuff, eh?  Obviously more thermodynamics.  But you might be able to do some filing indoors, or laying out parts ready for the first day out to the shop.

Hope that you are back to 100% soon.

I was tidying up the WKSP ready to start work and i dropped my box of taps....however because they are all colour coded it was quite quick to sort them out and now they are all ensconced back in their respective spaces...!! I use the resister colour code cable idents....

Color coding your taps is a pretty spiffy idea!.  Do you only code the major diameter? Or do you also code the thread spacing too?

Hi Kim, the colour coding is just on the BA Number taps  from 0BA to 12BA.....

Back at work but taking it easy.......starting on the beam  ... this is of wrought iron built up construction rather than cast, so quiet easy to fabricate......I am making a template to begin with..........

Hi Chris, thanks and am spending time actually studying the photos and finding differences in the drawings and the engine... It is quite important to have photos from all the angles ...x  y  z   as have noticed that some of the profiles are convex rather than concave !! When you look at curves at an angle it is possible to see them incorrectly !!
