Patterns completed!


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!

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!
