Hey Bill - those Grizzly guys have a vendors table at the IPMS convention. There was nobody there to day though.

I just got into milling and I have to say that you are making that look a lot easier than it actually is. The motor looks great.

Just wondering, what kind of adhesive do you use to glue aluminum to aluminum or aluminum to plastic?

is this a real engine? too bad it couldnt run and have your own 1/24 hemi rc car

I'm sure the next post will be of the lumpy cam and crankshaft he just machined freehand. The post after that will be of the spark plugs......

Seriously though, this is an impressive build. I can almost hear it run now.....

wouldn't that be cool? thanks guys

ya Kyle this is not easy for me, especially being my first time using a mill, but so far the only part I have to re make is the distributer, because it is a little too tall, I use C.A. glue from my LHS, thanks for looking

Bill.... I have no idea how I missed the start of this build. Holy Smokes Man.... I am totally impressed with your skills my friend. I need to step up my game big time...lol. The work you have done on this engine is just blowing my mind and looks amazing. I can't wait to more of this come together. I can only imagine what you have in store for us next. This engine is a work of Art!! Keep up the great work and I will be following along for sure.
