photos for this week...

the last stage of the Burrell / roller cylinder blocks is the fitting of the liners. here they are on the 4th axis mill...



on the subject of cylinder blocks, i have just started a new batch on 2inch blocks. made out of solid, the first op has around 12 tools and takes about 47 mins each...



lots more wood done this week. this is the traction wagon kit 3...







another job i've had to fit in around production. Burrell trigger levers...



boiler bushes...



and the very first, fully welded Roller Boiler...



and the second one. this one is still hot !!!

some very quick last minute photos this week...

the new batch of 2inch cylinder blocks that i started last week are now onto their second op. so that's the front and rear faces and saddle done. then its onto the top and sides and finally it needs a 4th axis op for the saddle holes...



the 2inch cylinder liners are also done...



we still have one machine cutting wood for the wagon kits. these will be the main cross members...



cutting out the clearance for the rear wheels...



the pile of finished parts is slowly growing...



also have a couple of machines working on the main chassis for the bowser. these should only take a couple of days and then they are off for fabrication...



and finally boiler making. yes i know it all looks very similar but this is actually a stage i don't think we have seen before. here you can see the internal firebox being held in place with rods and spacers, ready for welding. (it would probably be a good idea to sort all these boiler pics into a logical order at some point and post them in their own topic)
