From the bench of Callie Shevlin:
I’ve been working a lot on the straight line since I last wrote. As a small diversionary tactic, I also decided to dismantle my rose engine, 100%. As you might imagine, I had a shop full of tiny screws and weird parts. I even labeled and wrote on the tile floor to make sure that it all went back to where it belonged. The rose was taken apart because the division plate wasn’t moving at all, so it needed a top down revision (and I now have a plan to do this every 5 years to make sure all is in good condition).
A quick announcement and on with the post!
We will be hosting engine turning classes in Seattle Washington at the Memoria Technica workshop again this year. Check out the courses here!
From the bench of David B. Lindow:
I recently attended the Ward Francillon Time Symposium. It was a great opportunity to see some old friends, renew some acquaintances, and be introduced to some interesting and talented people I had not yet met.
From the bench of Brittany N. Cox:
While visiting David’s workshop late last year and again this year, he was in the process of finally assembling his MADE lathe – an endeavor that took over 6 years. Here are some photos of the lathe during assembly.
