Sizing up the Denbigh


Here’s one half of the cases plonked onto the table of the Denbigh mill. You can see the flailing belts which have to be hand pulled to help start the motor to the rear of the machine!

The boring head in the photo will automatically expand to perform a facing operation. It was second hand and hasn’t been used yet, plenty of old stuff that ‘might come in useful one day’ is being pressed into service – and it’s good to see. Shed recycling to save the planet 💪

The second set is being drilled and the second timing case milled. Once those jobs are complete, we can look closer at fitting locating dowels. Finally, we will come back to the Denbigh….

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!
