Tech Talk / Bassani exhaust shield
« Last post by LWC82PE on October 14, 2018, 02:30:43 PM »
Can anyone tell me the hole dia in the perforated sheet heat guards on the Bassani pipes? I thought it was 3/8 but i am struggling to find 18g (1.2mm) with that hole size. I can find 1.5 or 16g but its a bit thick i reckon. I did find some with 1/4 holes so maybethey used that? I have a sales add and it says the shields were made of 18g. Maybe someone can confirm the thickness as well thanks.

I have 1 of those sitting here, don't fit the new mikuni slides, possibly may fit in a snowmobile slides if they are thinner walled

thx Leith - so the "shroud" and the "slide stuffer" are one in the same then?

from the diagram i can see it suggests there would be less mixture turbulence generated by directing more of the the air flow horizontally through the throat of the carb and reduce virtiical disturbance.  Never heard of this issue before

Well I have finally finished a few planes and also made myself a jointer from an old electric plane.

 This is a Chisel Plane made from cypress and jarrah and the blade was made from a saw blade which had to be heat treated and then tempered


A Rebate Plane made from Ironbark and Cypress Pine and I used an old wood chisel for the blade.



This is a  wooden Block Plane which was made from different coloured cypress laminated to give it a cool look.  The blade was cut from a tool steel blade, and some other bits machined from brass.




This one is a Router Plane, not sure of the type of timber but it is very heavy.  The L shaped blade in this plane is made from a 10mm allen key with the bottom sharpened.



This is the Jointer used for flattening and squaring timber, useful machine, works great.



After making the blades for these tools they were all sharpened using diamond stones from 150 grit to 3000 grit and are all like razors.
