    Don’t know how common these are. I find them invaluable. They are transfer punches. Great for getting hole centres correct when making engine plates, etc

    Thanks for that, Phil. Looks like I'll have to get a band saw sorted out then.

    Thanks again,

    Tony

    Hi Tony

    Plates cut on my vintage Dewalt band saw. No secrets, or tricks other than double sided tape to hold the plates together at the sawing and drilling stages. Once separated hand finish.

    Good luck

    Phil

    How did you cut out the Engine Plates, Phil? I have a similar project ongoing but I intend to use a 4 plates set up. I have the MDF patterns to work from and some 6mm Al plate, but I don't fancy messing about with a coping saw for weeks on end!

    The first time I built a Triumphs-Greeves I was lucky enough the to have the plates cut for me - that service is not available now.

    Thanks,

    Tony Gee

    You know me too well ‘Anglian man’. The trolley was made from unistrut offcuts and fittings diverted from skips. An understanding employer helped

    Sadly nothing from Xtrac

    Hi Phil
    Never mind the engine plates, how much for the VERY pretty trolley, you could enhance your pension even more making these I hope there are no Xtrac bits in it, stay safe.

    Cheers Tony. Yours was a great project.
    Now retired, the Anglian project keeps me occupied
