Hello guys, I see an update is more than overdue, had to go to the fifth page to find the thread again.

Having spent a long time making some as-much-scale-as-seems-possible 45 degree angled fittings I couldn´t wait finishing the 90 degrees ones, and finally had the circle drive tested without them only last week, although I finished the valve already last April. With the glide bearings still missing, the tooth wheels jam in one direction, but funny enough hardly in the other, as you can see in this video.

@ Paul, Ap, Pontiacmann: Thanks! Glad you like it.

Now to the moldboard. Started from a stainless tube with 3 mm wall thickness. The radius of the tube was only slightly smaller than needed and to my luck it widened up to almost exact scale radius when the cut released the inner tensions.



The upper edge has a non-radiused portion, so a 10 mm by 3 mm strip was added.






The real moldboard is recessed along three sides for the cutting edges as you can see here.




The recesses are apparently forged in a big press, so forging was one of the build options considered, but in the end I opted for a combination of adding parts to the edges and milling and grinding out the final shape. First, the ends were bevelled.

WOW!!! It looks like I will have to watch this build a lot closer than normal builds. Your machining and thinking outside of the box makes me want to stop trying to make anything You just keep setting the bar higher and higher.

Absolutely one of the best builds to date on the forum.

I have to agree with tc1cat you are so skilled it's un real. Wish I had just 1/10 of the skill you have been watching very close. Keep up the good I am sure many will be watching also

Man you definitely are disciplined in your work!! I have a hard time when I have to change drill bits!!! Skill and dedication are paying off, build looks awesome. Looks like you got a 1:1 to keep the details in sight!!

Thanks a lot Lynn, but I really hope you don´t stop building, hate it to be the cause of that . However, now when the circle turn valve is finished I don´t think the bar can come much higher in this build (maybe except for the swivel valve, where there is very limited space for the hydraulic fittings).

Thanks! But don´t underestimate yourself. With some time and thorough planning you can achieve a lot. But sure, you need the tools.

Thanks! I really wish I´d have the original within reach. Still I´m lucky, cause the BAUMA fair is within 1 hour driving distance.

Thanks for the recent comments. Now, to the bevelled ends the recessed portions were separately attached.





Simple jig to align the lose parts.


Some tig spots.




Before and after hard soldering.
