The work in this thread is humbling. But inspiring as well.

I missed the business of the little sandblaster (airbrush). Can you point me to that?

...Used to be just Zee... sigh... Time to send out more opera-yodeling/kazoo-playing elves!   :ROFL:

I wish they would leave. They just sit around expecting cookies...and the incidence of "where did I put that" has gone up.

I can't recall if you said...are you planning a chassis around that thing? And wheels?  ;D

Hi Zee,


This is the little sandblaster, got it several years ago. Runs okay, it blasts a very small pattern, like a airbrush. I got it for removing paint and decals on train cars, works on metal too. Not removing much, but does knock off fine toolmarks. It works best with its hopper mostly full.

Your shop elves sound like they are bored waiting for your shoulder to heal up and start work.

I am not planning on making the rest of the car, at 1/4 size it would be huge. Fun, but huge. My shoulders couldn't do that either!

 :cheers:

Hi Chris,
 No bolts long enuff, so expanding arbour works for me!

Nice work on the threading, those guys that power thread just donít know the joy of hand threading!

At this rate youíll have all of us exhausted & a running engine by the end of the month!

Zee, what do we want to see next?

Cheers Kerrin
Get excited and make something!

Well............ that's just great!  :thinking: Something else to add to my already bulging Amazon Wishlist. I have a bigger sandblaster, but I really like the looks of this one for small areas.  :)

Did I  mention that I'm a really strong willed person? I've always been able to resist anything..........................except temptation!  :lolb:

Since you got the little sandblaster several years ago, how much have you used it and how's the nozzle been holding up?

Sandblaster nozzles are usually considered to be a consumable item, the same as MIG and plasma cutter tips.

Still following along  :ThumbsUp:  :ThumbsUp: I like the threading setup  :praise2:

It probably only has an hour or two of use on it, nozzle is fine so far. Have had to unscrew it a couple of times to clear an oversized piece of sand but looks okay still. I run it off my main compressor, it came with connection for airbrush one.

This afternoon saw some more shop time, got started on the cylinder top end caps. It was a bit of a guesstimate as to what diameter to start the threads at since the internal threads were not done with a tap, but it came out pretty close. The first one needed to be taken down below the point where the cutter was making full-depth cuts and the peaks of the threads went sharp. So, on the second one I took the blank down that extra 8 thou and it worked out quite well. The cap works on either side, so I know that at least the internal threads were done consistantly - this should make doing the bottom caps with the piston rod guides go easier. Here is the first cap blank being threaded:

and at the point where it screwed into place:

Second one went much faster:

Tomorrow I will likely do the same for the blanks on the bottom end of the cylinder, then start shaping the caps and part them off to length.

I think I'd have done the external threads first for use as a gauge for the internal.  You can measure the threads with wires if you want to be fairly accurate.

First time I have done threads like this, its all a learning experience.  How would the wire-measuring work?

I don't remember if I've actually used them, but I do have the wire set. You use 3 wires of a certain size and with two on one side and one on the other mike across them to get a particular thread pitch. I think the Machinist Handbook has a chart with wire sizes & measured dimension for a given thread.

I did it once in class.  Need a rubber band to hold the wires or else 3 hands.
