New Cool vs Old School


In parallel to the electronic shenanigans for CNC, Bob has been applying the Mk.I grey matter to the problem of calculating the pressure required to force the crankshafts into the flywheels. For those of you who went to the old school, details are in the picture.

For those who didn’t, the upshot is that the hydraulic press we have is up to the job. We need 9.35 Tons to force fit the crankshaft. We tested the press to 11.2 Tons with some way to go. Always a tense moment though with the odd creak going on!!

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!
