Preparations for Ron.


(Later Ron) 🙂

The shed fairies have been busy again, working on making the Denbeigh mill a better machine. Bob is certainly very through! The vertical head has been stripped and greased, then re-assembled with a new drawbar assembly. The head has been set parallel to the table and the machine run for 15 minutes to make sure nothing gets too hot or stiff.

The drawbars took some work, with the rear of the machine sawn off by 2 inches to allow the shorter ones to be fitted and tightened. Spacers and locators made and in general, the machine is now much better and ready for use. We’re waiting for the steel plate to arrive, so we can bolt the enormous cases to various machines.

I love seeing this kind of work. Some of those items might not be required for 10 or 20 years, but one day in the future that will might save a load of time.

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!
