Half moon rising.


Lots happening at the moment. The big news is that the shed has changed hands! I’m now the legal owner on paper, though in practice nothing has changed. Bob and I are still working on project Hercules.

The flywheels have both been bored now, so they’re out of the big lathe and on the mill individually. Some of the thickness is being removed to create the counter balance for the weight of the piston and rod. The first wheel is nearly down to size.

Meanwhile, we’ve also had a trip down to Redhill to collect some tools from a late relative. Another trip required but the stuff is fantastic! If we get the two big machines the shed will really rock! Watch this space.
