1 Cylinder, 4 cycle, 3/4 bore X 3/4 stroke, Hit and Miss, designed by the late Bob Shores

Here is my first engine project The Silver Angel! With Bob's permission I am making three of them at the same time. One will be for myself and the others will be gifts. I am having lots of fun machining this little engine, Bob made great plans.

       

I live in Norway and we are totally METRIC over here so I am making lots of practical changes for myself but sticking to the plans as much as possible.

I am for the moment without a mill so I am a little delayed. Here are some of the parts I have so far. I also have several parts semi machined awaiting milling.

Carburetors and mufflers

Heads

  Crankcases

Here is a picture of a cam being ground with the help of Bob Shores little

cam grinding jig. This is a very cute little construction that Silver Angel

builders are lent upon request. All you have to do is clean it up and return

it to Margaret Shores. This was a great help and I now have 4 cams ready for

hardening.


 

Here is a picture of the upper and lower cam and drive brackets. They are not complete yet. A good amount of work went into these.

This Tapping tool is of great help when thread tapping with samll taps. My mills quill retracting spring is too strong for sizes like M2, M3 and so on, it will just pull the taps right out of their holes stripping the thread. So I made this tool from a salvaged drill chuck and scrap material. The small rod on top is held in the mills chuck, it spins freely in the body of the tool, the tap is held in the chuck. This tool make taping with small tapes alot easier and is automatically in center of the hole. I got the idea from Strictly IC mag and made modifications to my needs.
