31/2" Tich

samc88:
Attempting to break my track record with build logs with this and hope to keep it updated. I got an almost complete set of Tich castings for 60 a few years back (just missing 3 wheels and a couple of minor bits) and since I'm off work with this lock down due to medical reasons I thought why not get on with it.

Cut the frames and buffer beams out with hacksaw and files and upon test fitting all looks nice and square.

Cut out the corner angles ready for riveting and made a clamp for machining the hornblocks on my vertical slide. I've cut the hornblocks in half from the casting stick and marked them up as two pairs (would have liked to machine them together in the one stick but I don't think it would work well with the limitations of my machine)

Will be lots of questions I'm sure
