Turned down


Usually being turned down has negative connotations, but not this time. Bob and I turned down the bar for the conrod to the right thickness and I drilled the mounting holes for the rotary table.

Not particularly difficult operations in themselves, but it’s a start and it’s something! There was no fanfare or ceremony, but I feel like there should have been. An actual engine component was started today and that can only be good 🙂

Now with the outline marked on you get a better idea of what’s inside that aluminium bar….

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
