Mamod Frame Holes

Post by nikkor » Tue Nov 26, 2019 5:22 am

Hello!

Would anyone happen to have the dimensions for the holes on the Mamod locomotive frame, specifically from the center of the cylinder (the trunnion? I believe its called) to the front axle? If anyone has a drawing of a Mamod frame that has worked for them it would be very much appreciated.

My idea is to reuse some of the Mamod parts but to design something different from the standard Mamod- perhaps a little more robust.
Here's the so far mock up of the Mamod, it's not as accurate as I had hoped for, but for getting the general impression of the components and their sizes for a mock up, it will work.

Thanks everyone!

Really it was these holes that were kind of a pain.
I think that this locomotive was designed in metric- a complication for an American who prefers inches.
