It is as close as I could get, Stew.  I think brown is a shade of black, isn't it?

White is just a very pale shade of black...

slowly getting back at it.
Here is more I worked on the last couple days.
When I profile a part, it works better and tools last longer if i drill holes around, then use the end mill to finish.  Fastest way to remove metal is with drill bit or band saw...Drill bits and band saw blades are cheaper than carbide endmills also.

I'm changing some things as i go, so you can see my cam had to get bigger with the bigger crankshaft.

Hi Thomas,

I have the basic Shapeoko 3. What can I help you with ?

Brian

Hello Brian,

You are the man that I am looking for  :cartwheel:. I am looking at the 3' x 2' XL model and as earlier stated every review that I have found on the internet gives the machine really good ratings. First off, are you satisfied with the unit and how easy is "their" program to learn and operate? I know that their program is an "in house" design but again all that I have read is good. I do all of my design work in AutoCAD so all of my drawings are in both dwg and dxf format which exports directly into the program.

Thanks so much for any helpful information,
Thomas

Can't help at all, but interested in the thread. Will this be for the car body Thomas?

Bill

Hello Bill,

I must laugh at your question, I just received an email from Chris suggesting that I cut the body out of a tree trunk :lolb:

The main use for the Router would be for other projects, but I could do a brass Instrument Panel and some Emblems now that I think about it.

Have a great day,
Thomas

Thanks Don, so far so good, but there always has to be a leak or four...  Got it all cleaned up for doing the rear end cap but daylight is fading so maybe in the morning.

Hi Chris , Great progress on the boiler!  :ThumbsUp: :ThumbsUp: :ThumbsUp: :popcorn: :popcorn: :popcorn:

I see lots of vaporized dihydrogen monoxide in your future!
Hope so! For now just a lot of CO2 and vaporized dihydrogen monoxide from the propane torch...
 :cheers:

Don't forget, still need to build the firebox shell, a dummy, the front boiler stand, ashpit chute, water tanks, and the steering engine. A ways to go yet, but close!
