  • Rob Dahm looks like a young John Peters. Went from cabinetry, to machining rotary engine parts. Darn whippersnapper.

  • Australia is metric but utilising both imperial & metric gives a much better idea. Using collet chucks & m/c drills with Morse tapers & matching Arbors wherever you can, Centre drilling first(always), drilling in stages up to allowance for reamer, locking table sideways before starting the cut. Short series whenever you can & lots of coolant/oil 0.1mm allowance for reamer & even 0.001mm dial gauges on table when cutting to see any movement. Always making sure temperature of material doesn't rise. 20.5 degrees Celsius when measuring. I see many not measureing temperature before measuring work. Good stuff for me as skills have to be honed & tested for my own confidence. Cheers & hope any suggestions help. You look & sound more than capable. Cheers

  • A “jobber” drill bit mainly refers to the length in modern times. And, if the fit between the dowel pins and crank case holes were within .001” you wouldn’t be able to slide them in and out. I do love your cars though, good work.

  • Find a way to contact me. I can get you any combo of reamer you need. Consider using piloted reamer’s for your final sizing, to maintain your positioning. With your tooling, a pilot of the existing hole size will help eliminate the runout you are concerned about. Tell me what you need, and I can make it happen. Thrilled watching your enthusiasm for the rotary. My first car was a one-owner 73 Rx2 coupe. I had it for 30 years, and sold it to a NZ enthusiast, so it could live on. I ran out of sources for parts and expertise. I guess I bailed out about 6 years too soon! Keep going!

    • I can get you double margin drills to get you started, and then core drills to get you to the reaming phase, so you are not making such large cuts from the start, which should equal less variance. There is always another way to get where you want to be! I drill large holes, using hand drills, that require .001 tolerances, for a living. With your equipment, it should be a cake walk!

  • Rob stop thing of that milling machine as a High dollar drill press! The thing will make perfectly round holes, you first drill a smaller hole, big enough for the milling bit you going to use to fit in, then you program the mill to take out all the remaining in material out in steps to under .05, then you make one final pass to size using long fluted tool bit in one cut. I've been a machinist my whole life and when these CNC machines came out we all had to change the way we did things, and once you learn how to use them you can mill stuff to within .003+/- with very simple programming. I wish I was close to help out. Also, I haven't seen which software you are using to program with, or if you even have one. If you don't get one, programming by hand on the console is the hardest way and also the easiest way to make mistakes. GibbsCAM CAD/CAM is what I would suggest if you don't have one, if you do have one let me know what it is, and I'll see about getting it or going over it to see its features. Might be able to do some side programming for you.

If I've learnt anything from living here my entire life and my experience in tech highschool, it's that if there's a very niche technology product, that only about a hundred people in the world could be interested in, a German company probably makes it and it probably has no serious competition.

  • Couldn't watch the whole thing, you need to hire a real machinist. Or at the very least call a reputable tool company like Guhring and get the proper tools for making holes. You need to leave the proper amount f material for a reamer and feed it at the proper speed to achieve the desired size. You are not close.
