David Kerzel Horizontal Hit & miss
I got these plans a long time ago, from this site. I found them to e very well drawn and the nicest part of it is that it was all made
from bar stock.
I started out by making the flywheels. These were a lot of work since I could not find round bar that big to start with and had
to cut them from plate. That was a lot of sawing time.
Milling the opening of the flywheel.
A lot of calculation at first but a nice and easy routine once figured out!
The final result.
The base. Since I did not have what's needed to turn the large diameter, I milled it out with a ball end and then ... sanded, sanded and sanded.
Now is time for some more complex parts. The spark plug insulator is Corian, a real pain to drill.
Let's have some fun with the main body.
So far so good.
I have not decided yet if I will next move on with the crankshaft so that I can assemble the flywheels or work on the valve train!
With Christmas coming soon, I will have to step out of the shop and do some shopping. That's is good to refill the "Air Loose ®" account.
NOTE: for those who do not know what Air Loose are, these are like frequent flyers point but with your wife. You give a lot of time to get a few points
and consume them when spending time in the shop :)
