Triac returns to action

Post by Roy » Mon 16 Jan , 2012 18:23 pm

After my Triac has been laid up for about 2 years due to doing up a house, building a garage & many other projects.
I finally got round to using it again this week, so thought I would post up a couple of pix of what I've been making.

These are overhead rockers for a 1930's fully radial 250cc Rudge motorcycle.

From the date on my drawing, you will see that I had intended to do these 4 years ago! Such is life!

Nice one Roy, How many Rudge 250s are there out there? What is the material specification?

There probably about 300 + 250cc Rudges still about.
Material is EN36B (3 1/4% Nickel chrome, 65 ton) These will now be hardened .040" deep to 65 HRC, then the side bearing faces surface ground & the bores honed.

Cheers, Roy

Very nice work.
Would be interesting to see how you set this cut up, special fixtures i guess but this is an issue that I always find intriguing and the "old guys at the work shop" never stop to amaze me in their smart ways to make their cut. Perhaps you did take a photo during machining?
How long did each part take and what feed rate did you use?
Sorry for all the questions..
