Technical Found this Girdle ?

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by stillrunners, Aug 29, 2018.

  1. Also at this machine shop was what appears to be a nicely made girdle - not like my uncle made back in the late 50's....I actually did get to see it and it was just like some one would make in a shop...sadly lot's of his stuff was passed on as the nostalgic craze took hold. See what you think -

    If that started out as a billet of steel, that is an astonishing amount of whittling! :confused:

    Impressive.........

    Ray,
    Sometime ask me about me, my college girlfriend, a "panty girdle", and a Corvair coupe.:D

    Looks like something Joe Mondello made.

    Probably cast steel, then machined, would be my guess. My nephew could do this in his CNC Aerospace Machine Shop, but even then, it would take a while; it could be cut out of a billet of steel, but the amount of time involved would make it realistically too expensive for anyone to afford, unless you were Boeing, like he frequently deals with.
    I am Butch/56sedandelivery.

    Walt, I wholeheartedly agree! Being an ‘old man’ myself, I have adapted to the realities of age appropriate opportunities........and, in my youth, did my best to provide them with that ‘experience’. Sort of a form of paying into Social Security for benefits later....:D

    Hnstray I agree and Butch I don't disagree but a casting made that thin along the pan rails would seem prone to cracking I would think. I've never seen one in person it is an interesting piece. I wonder what it fits? And maybe it is not for an engine at all but somehow I doubt that. Questions, questions, questions.

  15. yep...it's a heavy piece....the only anything on it is - A A A - on the middle cradle...it does have those Allen screws that look like they just set the support.

    Does anyone know much about Ansen girdles? I think I'm going to use it in a NON race motor with all 60's parts.

    So there are some benefits to being an old fart after all. Who would have thunk it.:p
