start of the new crosshead i cadded it this moring.
5-17-2013 NEW TENDER STAND AND LONGER RUN FOR LOCO 13.4 FEET
VALVE GEAR IS BABY SMOOTH NOW JUST WAITING ON PARTS TO KEEP GOING I HAVE TO GET MATERIALS TO START ON THE CROSS HEAD GUIDES.
AS YOU CAN SEE I GOT THE 4MM TAP OUT AND FIXED IT. I REDID THE SHAFT AND CAME UP WITH A BETTER PLAN TO TAP IT ALL NOT TO BREAK THE TAP OFF.
yep i do know i broke that 4mm tap off in that arm i have not come up with a great plan to get that out yet. valve gear is working i just need the out side arms to run the valve but waiting on the steam chest to get the right height of the c to c distance.
