Thanks, the engine will be getting a few details added to it to hopefully make the two look like they belong together.

Hi

That is very impressive Rob. What are the rivets, by the way? Are they machined using your CNC process?

Cheers, Ben

Thanks Ben,

The rivets are machined along with the parts. Or, everything that isn't part of the part is machined away.

If anyone wants to see the process you can install CutViewer Mill and then open & run the file below. It is pretty easy to do (open the file with the program and press the 'run' button) and is neat to watch the program work. This file is the one I used to see what height & diameter rivets came out looking the best.

I'd buy two.

I doubt it. There's around 35 hours of machining to make one of these. It would take an embarrassing amount of money for me to want to make more. But, if there is enough interest I may consider making up one more for use as masters for resin casting. I won’t cast them myself though.


Very impressive Rob. :thumbup: Large NA prototype tenders in TT are rare, the only known manufactured version being the HP 5000 6 wheel tender, a very generic model to say the least. Please keep us informed if you decide to resin cast these, I'd certainly purchase at least one. Who made or manufactured the wheels, and what sizes are they?
