Engine Ancillaries / Re: Ice Cream Machine
« Last post by RonGinger on Today at 01:25:55 PM »
I made a set of rubber molds from a small ice cream freezer and had 6 set of castings made. I sold 5 of them at shows, then sold the molds to a fellow that I think follows this list. I will not identify him, since I dont know what he plans to do with the molds.

The plan was to hook it up to a model hit and miss engine, but my friend that had the engine died and I lost interest in the project.

Thanks for the Cabin Fever pix and especially for the video, modern technology vs Victorian. I couldn't help wondering whether the Lombard in steam would have been able to get up the dirt pile on its own.

Jerry :old:
That ramp was about the same grade as my driveway, so I think it could, as long as the wheels on the front didn't sink into the dirt. The trucks had the power but the wheels were too hard and smooth, and just spun.

Hi Kerrin

My youngest lad was in ChCh last year, helping to rebuild the city, when Kaikōura shook.

We are planning a visit him for next Christmas

Update.

Despite a recent break in at the Brass foundry that Ive used for over 30 years now, my wooden patterns are safe.

Ive ordered 6 sets of link motion castings for the half scale Robinson hot air engine. Theyre being done in Brass this time as they very rarely do Gun metal these days.

Im now in the process of getting the relevant patterns together for a small run of of castings. Im hoping to have 6 kits available from a mixture of leftovers and new Iron parts within a month or so.

Cheers Graham.

 :Lol: Great story Ramon.

Sometimes it just takes another set of eyes to solve a problem.
And at home, that other set of eyes is usually hers.

Whenever she says "Did you try...", I begin fearing a 'duh' moment and prepare to slink away.

And I'd still visit.
New Zealand is on our bucket list.

Looks like I've missed a lot of fun here.
Very nice fasteners!
