Brian's 5 cylinder radial
« on: August 19, 2018, 11:10:52 AM »
As most of you know I have been building a radial engine of my own design for some years now.
 Unfortunately the original posts have been lost but I still have my U Tube videos  that I will give the links to I will do this in stages to alow members to ask questions on the build.
The first  one is making the cylinders, sorry about the quality I am not into trying to make professional quality vid's I just don't have the time

Okay, I am seriously impressed with what you do, have been since the other place. I would be terrified to screw up a process on a part 15 processes in. AND you so this with the crap igaging dro's... They're cheap and handy, but I can't stand their lag. I find it quite difficult to be accurate on the fly then the numbers are almost a second behind me turning the dial. So, kodos to you for making incredible parts from small machines and budget electronics... I have so much to learn... 😩😩😩

Time for No 2 starting the cylinder heads  as with the cylinders I made a jig that can be moved between the lathe and the rotary table to try and keep multiple parts the same. but on one of the lower cylinders the spark plug was switched to the opposite side to keep it out of the oil that tends to collect when the engine is stationary.

Crisp video, very concise.

Making jigs is key to so many operations, even for 1 part that needs to be moved from machine -> machine and back.

Just so you know what I am aiming for here are 2 drawings front and rear. these drawings are constantly being modified. but show the basic idea.

 The dark clouds are lifting and I hope to be able soon  to post the complete work that was lost.
  As for now 
A new video is on the way showing how we get from a plan to a Master rod.

Brian,

Always a good post from your workshop, very enjoyable following the build. Music fits well I may add.

I would post comments on the youtube page, however I avoid googly like a bad dream. Never registering on any site that is supported by same.

Cheers,
Pep

That's a work of art all of its own ................ neat.

Say where did that crazy looking logo in the beginning come from LOL

Good explanation regarding the set up, nicely explained...

Thumbs up!

At last I have something to continue this thread .
I have finished the  link rods and the side plates that retain the link pins and also provide  a thrust area  if the big end moves sideways.  a video  on this  will be coming along shortly  but I thought you deserved a preview

With the crank tail shaft made I can now fit the Master rod for a trial, now it's starting to look like a engine.
