1/4 scale Porsche 917 180 degree V12 Build

Hello Dave,

Here is a 'happy camper' at Crossthwaite and Gardner With a full size W125 cylinder head/ block set up on a big 4th axis trunnion to do the same work as you are planning for the 917.



Things would be a lot easier if we both had a 'walk in', ' sit on' Haas milling machine to play with.

Cheers    :cheers:

Yup!   Exactly   nice bit of kit though mine will be manual.

Dave

steamer:
Made a lot of chips!    buried Samantha Bell....I'll get them cleaned up and drill and tap some holes tomorrow.

The dividing head needs to go to the bed, so I'll probably need to machine the base of the DH so the key matches the Tormach T slot.

Dave

Dave and all interested parties,
Just thought I'd throw this out here. I happen to follow Barn Finds and this came in my email today!
