I am thinking of using 3134 cams in my Triton. You will have to review the performance on the thread. Very cool stuff, keep it up.

I should do that and make alloy Trackmaster tanks. Except, well, they would look like crap and no one would buy them. I guess that idea has some drawbacks...

Hi there, astek!

I've been walking in the fog for sure.
Haven't noticed your build up/thread before.
Fuken awesome!

I really appreciate the method, building things from scratch & following the OG lines.

The only bitchy part is when you paint the parts, people don't get it that they're actually real steel.
With massive amount of time & skill spent to make it happen.
No bondo and shit like that!
It's almost a shame to paint them.

I will totally follow your project from now on.
Thank you for sharing & keep on pushing!

-Beat0-

that tank buck is awesome! One question (not criticizing) why not use solid wood for the buck? I would think it holds up better than plywood??Just asking..

You are an amazing craftsman to say the least....

Two t140 inlet cams are a cheaper alternative to the e3134's they are bsa's spitfire profile on a triumph cam, more midrange , who makes that lovely little bench mounted wheeling machine ? Or is it another of your creations ?
Great work , you should be on discovery instead of the occ gorillas .

Cheaper to use plywood. And if it's a one time use no need for the expensive stuff.

i figured that there are several benefits of using laminated wood, it gives you continues grid lines, each sheet has 5 layers which i use to make sure my form/all details stay symmetric when shaping. It is relatively stronger, multiple sheets can carry lots of load. As swooshdave mentioned it is less expensive than solid high quality wood, altough i use good quality birch which is not so cheap as well. There are many ways to build a buck, this is just a way i like to go.
thanks,

hi bon, i did not know that, good info. The raising machine is cast iron and it was cast the old fashioned way in a foundry in Staffordshire, England.

thanks,
