Excellent videos Doc, much appreciated.

I am currently converting to CNC so I  naturally have a few questions and observations:

1. What CAD/CAM system/setup are you using?

2. Is that a CNC'd Bridgeport?

3. The last operation to machine the flywheel OD scared the S*1T out of me. The part could easily have rotated as you milled off the corners a full 1/4" by 0.25
    You could have stuck two sheets of emery paper back to back which would have improve the friction immensely. Also the extra few tho' would have allowed you to mill clear of the part and not into your table.

Cheers

I was beginning to wonder if anyone was interested in the Little Blazer build but I'll keep chugging along.
   I will sell one for sure for the local human society maybe also a Little Thumper engine also. 


My machine is pretty much a Bridgeport it is a CNC Master Supra mill from CNC masters.

Thanks for the comment! And yes some times I scare myself but if she would have moved it would have just spun on the pin but it's surprising how much a small clamp wit a #10 screw will hold.

  Hi Doc

                          The little burners turned out well, like the tip of coiling the solder will use that on future projects. The engine runs very nicely.
                         
                                                    Well Done
