It’s taken a while longer than expected, but the patterns are finished and ready to take to the foundry. Excellent work from Dave and I can’t wait now to see a set in metal. The picture gives you a good idea of the size of things 😁
The plan is to get a couple of sets making, so I can get a set machined in basic order to hold the barrel. This will be a full sized mock up to get the frame started, while the other set gets fully machined.
Bob has the machining plan sorted and a bit of a job on learning the CNC operation on the Bridgeport – but it’s easier than you’d think so I’m sure I can explain it!
