Project Bar Stock Steam Engine
#19
The next part completed on my Bar Stock Steam Engine build is the Connecting Rod. This part is a small piece overall with a large amount of machining on the sides and ends to give it the shape. Pretty well impossible to hold in the vice and do this. So I started off by machining a small Fixture Plate to hold the material and secure it. I pressed in two .250 precious ground rods into the plate with the same spacing as the wrist pins on the connecting rod. This made it possible to hold the material, while being able to remove it, flip it, and know it was in the exact same location every time. Plus I now have a small fixture plate to use in the future!
