Half Beam Engine

Nigel Taylor

End milling a piece of 3/16" mild steel to get a square edge.

Note the wavy parallels that you can just see underneath the metal in the vice, these are great for setting a working height and ensuring you are parallel with the main bed.

We have reviewed these Wavy Parallels








Part 1 - initial layout and main frame

Part 2 - the bearing blocks start to get made

Part 4 - some of the main parts get assembled
