Thanks Kerrin

I could make you one but it wasn't really that hard

I read through this build thread and then just went from there
http://madmodder.net/index.php?topic=1077.0

The dial gauges were from TM (http://www.trademe.co.nz/business-farming-industry/industrial/manufacturing-metalwork/lathes-accessories/auction-1229927681.htm)

Cheers

Bruce

Hi Bruce,
 Thanks for the links, you did a nice job of Stu's version of Bogs design. The link to the dial supplier has lots of other goodies!

I have been working on the JAG Carb

What a fiddly little beast it is

First attempt was binned due to square stock not being centred correctly on lathe

Second attempt has almost been binned due to metric conversion errors but hopefully all will be well (should have moved the Air bleed screw away from the centre bore a bit more)

Here is a pic of yesterday and today's efforts


Just the Spray bar assembly to go but I am away down south for a week so this is it for this year.

Hope everyone has a great New Year celebration.

May there be much swarf and model making for you each in the New Year.

Stay safe everyone

Cheers

Bruce

Strange but I couldn't see the Youtube link until I quoted you

Now I'll take a look
