  1. Well the model B was never sold commercially, they were all intended for the Navy to be used on-board ships, but often unused ones found their way out :) so they can often be in good nick. The overarm bracing does look cool but doesn't really do much for the headstock stiffness.

    Gears are 14DP 14.5° so can be found quite easily. Did you get a full set of change wheels inc the 63tooth to do metric screw cutting?

    What's the centres distance? It looks quite long.

  2. I will try and remember to have a look tomorrow Irving - just come in from another session welding and can't be bothered to get cold again!Click image for larger version.

    Further frame progress - pretty well tacked up now. I will take it apart into sections to fully weld the joints and add the gussets. This was one of the reasons for bolting large sections together - it avoids too many awkward welding positions...
