    I'm not sure if this was even meant for this machine as it does not have a pull stud and there are no other ways of mounting it AFAIK. The machine takes SK40 tooling.

    It also came with this unknown to me collet system:





    I think this is the original box, also has a label that says Deckel on it.


    Er-32 collet holder is not an SK-40, I think it might be a BT40.

      Dude, is that the kind of life you live?

        We used to have the Evinrude painted one of that 15hp, good little 2 stroke!

          It looks as if it is for Clarkson threaded cutters, very common in the UK and parts of Europe until the turn of the century. All cutters have a 20tpi thread on the end of the shank and the collets and holder are designed so that the cutter is restrained axially by a centre in the holder and any torque on the cutter has the effect of tightening the collet.

          It's a far better system than the Weldon shank, but more expensive, so wasn't as popular.

                Never had an outboard motor before? Fwd/N/Rev come in handy for several reasons.

                • I made a skid steer to 3 point tractor adapter today. One side of the plate is so the skid steer can connect and the other a tractor 3 point implement. I did the 7/8 and 3/4 inch holes in the 5/8 inch thick angle on the mill with a 1/2 inch end mill. Just tell the machine I want an inside hole and give it the radius. The make up plate had been purchased from Ebay a good while ago. I tiged the end of the tube shut. I like to do that so creatures don't take up residence. The rest was mig but it was terrible windy and I was in too much of a hurry to switch wire so not the best welds. Being about blind does not help either lol. Picture was taken before the welding was complete.

                  • When I was a kid we had an old Elgin on our rowboat. No neutral or reverse.
                    Then years later I remember borrowing a cartopper and a 9.9 hp .. can't remember if it had neutral.. man was it gutless, but it always started. After I gave it back I found out it was only running on one cylinder.

                    Later in life I built quite a few boat parts for speedboats most of which were 90 mph and plus scows. But I never got to ride in them. So yeah, not around boats muchl..... spent as much time rowing as motoring I think.

                    I did make my own primitive boat two aircraft wing tanks with a few 2x4s across, bit of a deck in the middle, think I had it out or 4 times..

                    • We finished up the load-in and prep for the annual plant sale, which started today. This year it is a little smaller, due to the late spring we had, only around 3100 plants.

                      Plant sale pays pert of the expenses of the paid employees of U City in Bloom, which maintains 250+ gardens on public property around town.

                      Prep involves potting, identifying, cleaning up, and labeling all the donated plants, which come from residennt's gardens, and get delivered just as they were when dug up or divided, in bags, boxes, etc. About 90% of the plants are donated, some copme from the maintained gardens, and some annuals are ordered-in.

                      Now that it is all set up, we are done and others took over the actual sale operation. Free at last! no more working out in the wind and rain at 40F cleaning up plants and trying to dry off the pots so the labels stick (that part is done under cover).

                      Here is a pic of half the sale space (community center) prior to opening..

                        I actually did test both gears of both motors in the trash can. Thats why there is water on the floor. haha

                        No holes yet though!

                        • I busted my butt today saving all my Solidworks engine details as .pdf files and creating a general arrangement and bill of material for my Horizontal Sideshaft engine so I could send them out to people who purchased the plans. I wish there was a way to do that automatically, but if there is I don't know about it. Have to open each drawing individually in Solidworks and use the "save as" option to do it. A few years ago I purchased a piece of software form Germany that was supposed to do that, but it didn't work reliably, especially on drawings with multiple sheets.---Brian

                          • Jt, that's a good thing you guys are doing there.
                            I like the community gardens we have here scattered about town, let's folks get their fingers in the soil..
                            Hate to admit, but sometimes I set on a bench and observe whilst consuming a cold beer. .

                              • Shover cabinet is on top of the floor drain and too big to move anywhere without taking the whole thing apart so cleaning the drain properly has been almost impossible.

                                125mm hole saw takes care of that..


                                Also got some machining to do, trepanned cover plate from 3mm 316 stainless



                                Put large chamfer on the edge and run over the disk with satin finish wheel, looks good enough.
