Re: Stage6 MK1 Peugeot Engine

Haha that's definitely one of the biggest things I've seen turned on one of those stupid lathes, good for you making it work. I bought one for 50 bucks and left it on the curb when I moved one time...

Re: Stage6 MK1 Peugeot Engine

It wasn't the easiest thing to set up haha. So, this is an old Emco Compact 8 lathe. It's actually Austrian and it's what the Chinese company (Seig?) used to design there whole mini Lathe thing. Interesting to learn about though. Interestingly I bought this for $50 too!

What I found really cool was that they had an option from the factory with a vertical mill attachment. I ordered one from a guy but hasnt showed up yet. Looks like this:

Re: Stage6 MK1 Peugeot Engine

Glad to see youre still at it, and that you fixed that copper abomination. :)

I am super curious to see if the 16mm cranks can go the distance with this kit. Im honestly surprised the hobbit cranks do (it appears as some have ran this for awhile right?). Both are pretty long on the variator side and from what I know this kit should make almost double the power of a "normal" air cooled moped kit.
