Oh I'm having some fun....no worries....with all the crap going on in my life....I'll take the little victories.     Much refinement of some of the auxiliaries has been accomplished..   and The front engine mount is coming together in a much more pleasing and accurate way. 

I wish Fusion360 CAD didn't suck so bad...but    first world problem right?

Got a good start on all the internal gears yesterday.  Nothing particularly interesting, as I spent the day making "wafers", but LOTS of wafers

I'll post some photo's later today ....

Now this was motivational!    I get to print what ever I want at work....could have done this in H13 tool steel.....but it's just for checking fits and my sanity....which always needs checking....

Hi Dave,

That looks mighty impressive. If you could print it in aluminium; it would save you a lot of time and work filling those buckets with them tiny little chips.

Cheers

Good to see the crank in situ (so to speak)  :ThumbsUp:

Some things would be so much easier if we 'could just print them in the correct material'  ;D
