It is such a feeling, after many hour and late nights, the project I was working on, finally been successful.
Some weeks ago I’ve got a packet from Tiny Power, US. It was a casting kit of a steam engine called “Little Kathy“. She was presented in a nice box, with plans and a reprint of an orginally article from 1926 published in The Modelmaker magazine.
There was something about Little Kathy makes me looke a little closer to her. The velve cheest is diffrent then Stuart 10 for exampel. The appearance makes her to look like the real thing – a Steam Engine.
One thing, to try to make something from US is that they always talk about inch, I on the other hand, is born and raise with millimeter. Converting from inch to mm is not allways so easy so what I am going to do is as long as I can I will stick with the inch, but for me when I building I always convert to mm.
Starting with the base..
Then drilling and threading the bearings to the base.
Finish the column
Making the crankshaft
all the part together
.. and finish
Then the flywheels
And so far..
Somthing is comming together. Now while I am waiting for some equipment, I’ll go on with the cylinder. First some center hole in the lathe..
next I have to drill ..
then some turn in the lathe.
I will be back when I have done some more progress, until then
