What's on you model engineering 'to do list' for 2019
« on: December 21, 2018, 07:16:15 PM »
With 2019 fast approaching I just wondered what others hope to achieve next year ?

For me it will be restoring a couple of boilers I have and hopefully having a go at building the RLE from the Alyn Foundry casting kit.

I do also have a set of castings for the 3" Southworth pump so that will get started once I've bought some imperial drills  :)

I plan hold my first model engine running day.

As to models to build  :thinking: It all depends, following negotiation, on what castings I am allowed out of the collection. I hope to finish drawing up the Tulip engine in time for the Midlands show ::)

#1 Purchased all of dale detrich's spark plugs and parts stock. Plan to get focused on that part of model engineering. Have made some #8-40 spark plugs that are nice.

#2 Make a run of  10-40 spark plugs. Hope to have 50 in stock at the end of january.

#3 Design champion 3X and COM6 spark plugs in 1/3 scale (1/4 too small) and look perfect.

#4 Finish Blown Demon V8

#5 Finish 1/3rd mini bike.

Order could change at any time.

Do not be like the cat who wanted a fish but was afraid to get his paws wet.

Get the IF Allman complete and running if I don't manage it this month.

Project "F" is underway so that will need completing

Next casting kit is probably going to be the RMC type A, flame ignition version

It's about time I did a more detailed steam engine than the last few 24mm bore ones, I have something in mind for that.

Well that should last me until the end of January, after that who knows :LittleDevil:

It's funny, but just today in the late afternoon I was thinking  about this  what to do next.
Since five or more years there is a single cylinder IC engine casting set under my bench, but this is not what I really want to do. It has to wait some more years.
The decision is clear now, I will start this project , the Bruce Mcbeth Engine.

Or better I will start making swarf for this engine, the project itself has already started last year in summer when I have made the CAD model.Just ordered the small Proxxon band saw MBS240/E, so I will be better equiped to prepare the brass plates.
Kind Regards
Achim

Get the Marion build done. If any of the year left after that, I want to start a large scale version of the Stanley steam car engine that I have plans for, also want to shoe-horn in building the model makers vise that I got the Morisson and Marvin casting set for last year.

Finish Muncaster Grasshopper including governor hopefully.  If the Green Cutoff castings become available I'll probably by a set and start on a long build.  Otherwise it might depend on inspiration gathered at CF next month.

Lots of interesting projects Y'all.

I have a full agenda:
1) get the Dickson engine running by NAMES, I want to go this year again.
2) Make progress on the Mogul tank cooled.
3) Finish my Holt75 and get it running.
4) The Quincy is finished except for the ignition, get it running
