Project Bar Stock Steam Engine
#46
Tonight’s quick machining job on the Bar Stock Steam Engine build is the stand offs to mount the Cylinder and the Valve Body to the base. They are machined out of .250 brass round bar. I needed a set of eight .750 long and eight 1.250 long. I started off by cutting the stock on my bandsaw just a bit longer then required. I faced the first side, centre drilled, and drilled the through hole on all the pieces first. Then I faced the second side, measured length, then took them all down to finished length. 
I figured doing it this way was the closest process to a production run with the least amount of changes. I have several drill chucks for my tail stock. So I have the centre drill in one and the required drill bit in the other. Worked out pretty good. All 16 pieces done in 45 minutes total!
