  • As some of you know, I have wanted to stop managing H-M for some time. It's a tremendous strain on my personal life. I want to set up my own shop. In September, September 15, to be exact, it will be 8 years that Hobby-Machinist has been in existence.

    I have been training VTCNC to run things here. Dabbler is going to learn too. I feel that they are ready to start taking over the operation. I will be here to help in case they need, but I don't think they will. Tony Wells is and will be here also to consult with. I will be doing backups, upgrades, and installing addons. Other than that, I will not be around. I am leaving this place in good operating condition, and financial condition.

Here is my most recent engine build. It is Elmer Verburg's Scotty engine. Plans are attached as 08_scotty.pdf






Running on about 5psi.

Neat engine, but a finicky build.

Cheers.

C = close running fit
S = smooth polished finish
P = press fit

Click the link titled appendix at the bottom of the list of Elmer’s engine plans on John-Tom’s website.

Nice job on the engine.

The site has a lot of good information but the "Appendix" link mentioned was not easy to find. I missed it first time scrolling through the busy page.

Thank you Dave. I did kinda rush job on looking for it, but wasn't really sure I was in the right place to start with. His description on locating it wasn't matching up well with the info on the page.

Sorry, but I find it a little irritating when people don't post links when it is so simple and easy to do. I was trying to find it so others wouldn't have to go stumbling around for it.

Thanks again.
