Mini-Bridgeport he's built from scratch. He's currently working on the lead screw and belt drive system. It will run - and actually machine, small micro parts - mostly brass and aluminum. The Micro-V-Twin engine was also built from scratch. The arm on the front will advance the timing - it will actually run. He's working on the fuel system. His shop is heated with this big wood burner, old machines . . . a metal storage bin full of steel bars, brass, aluminum . . . shavings everywhere. Cold beer - cigarette smoke. Fun stuff !
Newway Seat Cutter. The carbide cutters are adjustable, they give you the 46 and the 30 (just flip it over) and you can get a 60 degree too - and then you can achieve the seat width you want, and with some practice, you get a nice smooth seat finish by gradually decreasing the pressure on the spring-loaded handle. It makes cutting seats fun, and it's not so messy. I lap the valves in carefully with a low-speed drill (forward & reverse) and then hand-lap the final finish. This is my KHK racer cylinders with big, honkin' valves. They almost touch each other. She's factory-ported and I just dig these K Models !
