11/28/2022 01:05:01S-Trains[fahrwud]Have a good night 👋🏻
11/28/2022 01:04:42S-Trains[fahrwud]OK Ron, will keep you posted on club progress. More prep this week
11/28/2022 01:03:50S-Trains[fahrwud]
11/28/2022 01:03:46S-Trains[fahrwud]Old school for you
11/28/2022 01:00:28S-Trains[RoninID]looks like it is about time to shut down for this week. 2 shows down and 3 to go for this year
11/28/2022 00:59:51S-Trains[RoninID]If I do this one, wouldn't need the piston rods or cranks just a short length where exposed
11/28/2022 00:59:14S-Trains[RoninID]I'll keep looking for photos of units that are easier to model
11/28/2022 00:58:26S-Trains[fahrwud]Yes sometimes a fancy piece of concrete was needed if a new machine sale had been made
11/28/2022 00:57:08S-Trains[RoninID]hmm really simple
11/28/2022 00:56:57S-Trains[RoninID]in fact the bases for this guy don't show the piston rods or cranks
11/28/2022 00:56:04S-Trains[RoninID]just noticed the concrete archways, pretty fancy work
11/28/2022 00:55:09S-Trains[RoninID]yes with the valve cover plates
11/28/2022 00:54:47S-Trains[RoninID]a tube with two bolted ends on it and a pipe up to each cylinder
11/28/2022 00:54:45S-Trains[fahrwud]The type 10 I saw had those style cylinders
11/28/2022 00:54:24S-Trains[fahrwud]That might be a Dollinger style intake filter
11/28/2022 00:54:21S-Trains[RoninID]with the intercooler underneath I could get away with less detail
11/28/2022 00:53:30S-Trains[RoninID]smaller rig intercooler underneath, hmm bucket on air intake?

11/28/2022 00:51:43S-Trains[fahrwud]You could hear that machine miles away on a calm summer night
11/28/2022 00:51:15S-Trains[fahrwud]The extra box was retired when he left
11/28/2022 00:50:38S-Trains[fahrwud]Well, she did NOT like that noise
11/28/2022 00:50:24S-Trains[fahrwud]That side was only a couple hundred yards from a former manager's house and his wife
11/28/2022 00:49:40S-Trains[fahrwud]Said it was an abandoned project to muffle the one compressor intake on the south side of the bldg
11/28/2022 00:49:22S-Trains[RoninID]some just look like an air filter
11/28/2022 00:49:12S-Trains[fahrwud]Asked my sidekick why it wa there
11/28/2022 00:48:55S-Trains[fahrwud]Came across an old intake enclosure in our boneyard once - seems more elaborate than usual
11/28/2022 00:47:42S-Trains[RoninID]I do like the sound of the thumpers
11/28/2022 00:47:25S-Trains[RoninID]in later models, electric motor instead of flywheel
11/28/2022 00:47:11S-Trains[fahrwud]Yes
11/28/2022 00:47:08S-Trains[RoninID]right flywheel in center between the two compressor units
11/28/2022 00:46:44S-Trains[RoninID]most of the model ones are one lungers
11/28/2022 00:46:24S-Trains[fahrwud]But the flywheel was still in the centre
11/28/2022 00:46:23S-Trains[RoninID]yup these look like pipe plugs
11/28/2022 00:45:58S-Trains[fahrwud]Later model with the valve plates on the cylinders
11/28/2022 00:45:43S-Trains[RoninID]so basically HP and LP cylinders the drive frame, piston rods, flywheel, belt drive, motor or engine, and tension pulley
11/28/2022 00:45:27S-Trains[fahrwud]I remember seeing one at an old site years ago.
11/28/2022 00:44:10S-Trains[RoninID]LP cylinder in foreground, HP in rear

11/28/2022 00:42:51S-Trains[RoninID]N is 54% of HO so I thought one of each would be OK but the N one looks a bit too small
11/28/2022 00:42:20S-Trains[fahrwud]Nice!
11/28/2022 00:42:05S-Trains[RoninID]here the HP cyl is 60% the dia of the LP cyl

11/28/2022 00:41:36S-Trains[fahrwud]Looks like an oil splash plate at the back of the machine. Open crankcase
11/28/2022 00:40:21S-Trains[fahrwud]Kewl
11/28/2022 00:39:42S-Trains[RoninID]HP is in the pic, LP behind the flywheel in rear
11/28/2022 00:39:08S-Trains[fahrwud]LP and HP on the air end?
