So that photo realistic rendering is from sketchup? Not some other software using a sketchup drawing?

Impressive :)

The model was created entirely within SketchUp. The rendering was done in Kerkythea like any of the other renders of SketchUp models in this thread.

And thank you.

A couple of experiments in cast iron. Both based on dimensioned drawings found in a book published in Shoe Lane, London, 1897.

A bearing bracket for an overhead line shaft.

And this is described as a "link for an air pump."

Latest project that I can show. This is a stand for a mini lathe that was designed to allow wheelchair users and children to turn. The original design is by a fellow in North Carolina, USA, who first designed it for his wife who is a wheelchair user. The design is also being used by a woodworking group's outreach program so there's a knock down version of it. I redesigned it to make it a simpler build and created plans for it in PDF format for the group to distribute to others who are interested in building such a thing.

I'm building myself a lathe. :D

This is based on one from the late 1800's. It'll run off an overhead line shaft with a belt about 2 inches wide.

The bed is intentionally modeled short. I'll adjust its length after the rest of the parts are modeled.

So what will power the line shaft? Water wheel, windmill or steam engine? I look forward to seeing this progress.
Regards,
Dave
My tool kit is almost complete, only a few more to get.

Yes. :D

I expect a steam engine. Probably won't model it, though.
