A Pattern Maker


Meet Dave. Dave swims like a fish, no, wait – that’s a 70’s government advice cartoon urging you to learn to swim.

Meet Dave, our new pattern maker. Dave cut his teeth making patterns for his apprenticeship, before branching out into wooden shoes. He’s fairly local and s biker too, so it all fits together nicely!

We’ve spent a few nights running through our project, the drawings and some patterns from other engines. Dave has suggested a few foundries to try around Leicestershire, so that’s next on the list.

It should take around 6 weeks give or take, so I could have a set of patterns in my hand for my Birthday. Or maybe, even, the castings!!

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!
