Pattern makers


Pattern maker and engineer Nick Moss has been teased out of retirement by our project. This is good news! Nick came round a couple of weeks back and we had a good old chat. Nick made the patterns for Bob’s 500cc air cooled 4 stroke, so it was good for them to catch up.

Nick took a set of plans away and dropped by yesterday with a couple of questions. It was great to see how the pattern maker thinks, hearing about runners and casting sand. The next step is to visit the foundry and talk to them, which we’ll book in sometime.

Nick took a marked up set of plans away and will start work after the classic TT. Progress!
