Re: Adrian's Grant #2

Whilst I was working on the final drives, I thought I'd draw out the correct profile front towing eyes, using the photos and measurements I took from the Bovington M3.

Re: Adrian's Grant #2

Having completed two trial runs of these links: WE210 Track Links.JPG and tweaked the settings to get the same quality across all four printers, I have started them off on the first run of 24 links each. 3D Printing in Progress.JPG They should be finished at around 7AM on Saturday :shock: Adrian.

Re: Adrian's Grant #2

After a Masterclass from Stephen White on how to use burrs and high build primer to create a cast effect, I've started to attack the final drive housings on the M3. I have to say, for a first attempt, I'm pretty happy with the result. The primer does show where some of the burr marks are a little to...

I'm amazed it started in only about a quarter turn of the road wheels.

Re: Oh Dear !

This was a comment from Al Bowie on Facebook:

"This range of books is great if the Author is Dennis Oliver but be very wary of other authors in the range. A good friend was a contributor to that one and sent a huge list of complaints to the editor to no avail"

Oh Dear !

Re: Motion Control Module
