Project Bar Stock Steam Engine
#14
   

Once I had the cylinder head turned down I put the cylinder in the mill vice to remove the excess material on the back side to create the rails for the slide to fit onto. I was also able to use the machinist jack that I made!! To protect the surface finish on the cylinder from my vice jaws a cut a pop can apart and wrapped it around the cylinder. Worked great!!
   
   
   

You can just see the 1/4” hole starting to appear once I got this side down to spec.
   

Flipped the cylinder over and did the same procedure on the second side leaving a .250 rails dead centre off the back of the cylinder. 
   
   

I then drilled the 8 mounting holes along the rails
   

Once that was done I had to cut a .500 slot down the centre of the rails. I also left more material at the end to help hold them straight that will be removed later. 
   
   

I used the tang to set the cylinder up vertical so I could drill the air passage holes that will connect with the valve body.
