    The mill is but one example of the fine work Lane does. He won't brag it up, so I will for him. It is scratch built, with no castings used.

    That is amazing, very nice work Lane, what did you use to load parts up with --- Tweasers? You coulda really used that mill to build that mill I bet, but then you wouldnt of needed to build one.

    Beautiful Snow Engine -- just a guess from the paint, is that the model from the cover of HSM?

    Lane, I've marveled over your Bridgeport model before -- it's just amazing.
    I'm assuming you milled the body and knee out of a solid block?

    Does it have a backgear?

    The Snow engine is the one featured in the HSM build article. It is much more impressive in person than in print.

    Doug Kelly, the builder also had a very nice freelance barstock side shaft mill type IC engine on display. He is considering doing another build article on that. I would encourage him to do it. It is just as nicely done as the Snow.

    Lazlo no the column and knee are welded construction. The column is a piece of 4 inch square tubing and the kneeis welded up 1/4 and1/2 inch hot roll plate all stress relieved.
    And no the parts werent as small as some people build . Easy on South Bend lathe and BP.The mill is 24 inche tall.
