I was nominated to do a ten day steam engine challenge
Every day I will select an image from a day in the life of steam engine or a proud moment as a steam engine owner. Then I will post it without any explanation and nominate someone to take up the challenge.
Re: 1908 Stanley hand brake
Hear are a few drawing of how I built the emergency brake locking hardware.
My 1906 did not have this hardware, but I added outside brakes drums and copied the hardware from a 1907 car.
I also added a brake light and brake switch.
Steve Baldock passed away on the 1st of November 2018
Shortly after completing the recreation of two Model R Stanley’s.
These are some photos of the Model-R Steve built from scratch.
He followed my work on my building my EX and E-mailed me often.
He did complete 3D cad drawings of every part.
Instead of castings most of the parts were machined in steel on a CNC Bridgeport Mill pre 1985 He advised me programs on how to go from Cad drawing to G code and then edit the G code to match my machine.
