been a strange month for the Blueprint Project. While looking for Indian
parts on the net I found Mineral94@aol.com who was selling
laser cut engine plates for 1910 to 1913 models. So I wrote and asked about
publishing the prints in the VI and found out that mineral94 was our very
own Rocky. And he was willing so here they are. He still has them for sale
so if you need a set buy from him.
I drove the 650 miles each way so that Jeff could have the 640 frame in front of him. Hopefully it won't be too long now. He said that if he doesn't have to go to Germany this month we might have the rear section next issue.
Moen wrote to see if we would be interested in doing cylinder base gasket prints of the Sport Scout for Mat Elvenkemper and James Gaskets. I think that every draftsman on the list offered, quite a change from the early days. Gerry got the job as he had the cylinders off his Scout. The prints came out beautiful. So there should be James Gaskets base gaskets for the Scout soon. Lyle Landstron offered to help as if he doesn't have enough going already. The base project was already underway so he suggested that we do prints of cylinder head gaskets and have them laser cut from copper sheet since James is firmly committed to composition gaskets. So we have another project underway. I have since learned that most lasers won't cut copper so will probably have to either water- or plasma cut them.

Some of the dimensions on these prints did not come out too clear in the scan/conversion processes, and we'll try to fix it. If you are in a big hurry, write if in doubt!
|And then Bart sent this wonderful first
installment of instructions for lacing a Chief wheel. When I tried to convert
them from DWG I discovered that the trial converter had timed out and not
only uninstalled itself but most every thing else, especially anything
to do with drawings. So I had to have Richard
convert them for me at the last minute. It will rate it's own headline
in the magazine.
Quite a month. Stay tuned.
