Looks like you all had a great time! Excellent video. Nice work driving the gas and steam Lombards Chris. That would have been tough enough in summer in the old days - but the steersman on the steam logger in winter - holy cow! froze on the front and broiled on the back!  :o  :cheers:

And the steersman was the first to hit the trees if they lost control downhill...  :o

Looks like a fun time was had by all  :ThumbsUp:  :ThumbsUp:  :)  :wine1:

I was interested to see that the planning machine was reversed by using the crossed belts rather than the crank mechanism usually used on shapers. I supposed that allows you to have a much longer stroke.
Best regards

Roger

Can't wait to see what you make of those BB12 plans Chris, there is a lot to digest on those plans, and that should keep you out of trouble and pre-occupied for a few months!

Its great that they have several guys to run the machine shop there. One of them is in the CAD/CAM industry, and its wild to hear them talking about the latest technology of software and hardware (lasers, all that) while they are running the early shapers and lathe!

Great history on the ship!  I've been looking through the plan sheets, and keep finding more details - at first I thought they were missing things like details on the rear upright frames, but details on those are included in other views showing other parts, things like that. I found the sheet that has the barring engine on it, it was mixed in with the barring engines from other ships. Its a small two-cylinder engine that turns two worm gear sets in series to get enough power to turn over the large engine - the two cylinders are only about 3 or 3.5" bore, but the power of gearing works! Other interesting details on the reversing engine, which is a single piston to run the Stephenson links back and forth. The real engine is a real giant. At first guess with back-of-napkin calculations is that the model could be somewhere in the 1:12 to 1:16 scale range, which will allow lots of fine detail but keep it small enough (just) to fit on the lathe and be able to pick the thing up.
 :cheers:

Will do!  Be a good place to keep notes and such while getting the CAD version started.

I did the same on the 917 engine.
