V8 Ford Flathead, was made from particle board. This was cut on a CNC router Mill. I used a .25 end mill bit.

I am wanting to build the Routermill from shopnotes and need a CNC machine to cut the gears for me. would you be interested doing that. I want them made from a good hard wood so that they will last. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks, Don. The templates can be down loaded from the shop notes web site.

I have many fond memories of the 239 cubic inch Ford flathead V8. My first car was a ‘53 Ford and I also owned a ’’49 half ton pick-up. Reliable as all get out those things, almost bullet proof!

I can’t say I’ve ever seen one of those before. Looks pretty cool.

Brings back a couple of memories. Did you know you could take a 39 Ford flathead and bolt it directly intoa 32 Ford Coupe, and that the 1950 Ford Police heads would bolt right up to the engine. Had to weldbolts on the frame and front axle to mount shock absorbers on it, but it would fly. Sometimes I almostwish I was still young and foolish enough to do this again, then I realize I would have to live through allof the rest of it too, and remain happily where I am. Did you ever try to put a tri-carb set up on one of these beauties? Thank you for sharing.

Flatheads forever! Nice work. Projects like that are what a CNC mill is good for.

The only real problem with the flathead was that bolt holding the generator to the intake manifold. The manifold was cast iron and a hard bump could break it, sending the generator and fan right through the radiator.
Been there, done that. (sigh)
