      Time to test the engine stand....

      Pic Nš 1 shows the kits engine mounts for attaching the engine on the side frames...

      Pic Nš 2 shows the specially made mounting bolts made with Pochers threaded rods and cap nuts made from 3 mm across flats hex brass bar...the washers are made out of brass too..

      Pic Nš 3 shows the complete mounting hardware...

      Pics Nš 4 & 5 shows the engine mounts which are a press fit, attached to the stands side upper rails...

      Pic Nš 6 shows the 4 engine mounts in their place...

      Pics Nš 7 & 8 shows the special open spanner tightening the mounting bolts...

      Pic Nš 9 shows the special spanner made to use with 3 mm bolts or nuts...the body was turned out from brass, the handle is ivory...

      Pics Nš 10, 11 & 12 shows the upper block as is, mounted on the stand...the latter came out very rigid to work on it, and with the block mounted, the rigidity increases wildly...

      Pics Nš 13 & 14 shows everything level and cozy, hee, hee............

      Pic Nš 15 is a closeup of one mount....

      Thanks for looking

      Mario

    What more can I say? It looks positively real.

    No kidding. I just picked up an antique upright piano for my son and it had 2 missing ivory keys. I tried to find a reasonably priced source and kept running into shipping problems. Something about not being able to ship over state lines. Well I faked it with sheet styrene Pocher Rolls K 72 Build 1-I (The engine stand 2) and some industrial yellow die. Cant even tell.

    Yeah, you can thank poachers, the foreign market and illegal hunters for that one. I bought a hand carved ivory chess set many, many years ago in Bermuda. It's worth a fair chunk of change now as I bought it when it was still legal to buy and sell ivory. I was getting kind of handy at doing scrimshaws until the greed mongers starting killing off the elephants. I did art on whale teeth for a while but even that is flaky nowadays.

    I gotta figure out a way to do art using landfill garbage....plenty of that available...cheap.

    I hear those trunks are really cheap. I think they could be had for peanuts.
