    Good to hear you are on the mend!
    It is always a concern when someone stops posting unexpectedly. We should all say when we will be going away. (if we can that is)

    So was it your sense of humor got removed by the doctors?
    The answer to your question? Well, you will laugh.
    Please get well quick. You post the prettiest pictures when you get to it.
    Cheers and best wishes,

    Glad to see you back Zadig I hope you continue to get better.
    I too have had a small hospital excursion, where I had a blue
    tapeworm fitted ( gastric balloon ) Slows you down a bit, but
    with the prospect of more "engineering porn" I will have an
    excuse to sit in this chair all day.

    hi zadig

    i have to say like most other people on here that your machining skills are staggering and i am very pleased to have stumbled across this thread as i am in the very early stages of building a 4 1/2 burrell off the plaistow plans. so im sure i will be ruterning to use the setups etc for ref many times. what make is your dividing head and what size chuck is on it etc. as this is somthing that i am staring to look into investing into and i dont want to buy somthing that just isnt going to do the job. many thanks for a trully amazing thread and im looking forward to seeing some more instalments soon.
    cheers

    I have taken a lot of notes from reading this thread.

    There are other people who build things like this, but few who detail how they do it like Zadig.
    He has spent a lot of time photographing and posting, and he has created something much more valuable than a traction engine.
    Thanks for sharing the fabulous work of a brilliant mind with us.

    This post is really a book about how to machine in a very creative way.


    Great stuff, but if Zadig finishes, then I will quit learning new tricks, so that is the downside.
    We will have to get him started on another great project after this one.

    Hope you can get up to speed soon.

    Thanks Pat, very kind words.

    I'm starting to get some strength back in my arm and have been in the workshop for the first time in a few months this last couple of days and working on the engine. I am getting a few pictures together, so an update is not too far away. I can't see me wandering too far away from this forum, it is the only place I visit with any pleasure, so whatever I do will be here.

    Stuart, I have the Plastow drawings, it was the engine that got me hooked about thirty odd years ago. The castings were available from Plastow themselves, formerly Lion engineering. I have a soft spot for the plans, they'll probably be the only ones I'll keep in the end, for posterity.

    The dividing head is probably a copy of some sort, there seems to be a lot of old models for sale on Ebay that look very similar. You mention dividing head but do you mean rotary table? If you get a rotary table with division plates, you can cover both bases with just one set of tooling. A chuck on my dividing head is something I don't have, but could do with.

    If you have any questions, just ask.

    Good to hear you are getting back into things. Must have been doing your head in not being able to get in the shop!

    Cheers nudge, I'm just on the threshold of going nuts.

    I've bought a cheapo camcorder from China, so I might film a bit of naked machining for the more adventurous extroverts out there. I'll need to keep the spindle speeds down though.

    You say that now. I won't be held accountable for any emotional damage.
