Great job Keith.
I built one about two years ago. I added a motor and variable speed drive to mine (I'm lazy I guess.)
I think every T owner should build one. It's a great project as well as a confidence builder.
I bought a Strobospark about six months ago (worth every penny and then some) its more accurate than the HCCT I built not to mention portable.
Even though I don't use my homebrew HCCT any more, it looks way cool sitting on my bench. I guess you could say mine is now just "eye candy".
Sweet! I like the low pedal for the crank much better than the homebuilt handle I made for mine.
Now that is nice. I too like the "low pedal" crank handle thingee. It looks like you already have it set at about 1/4" gap which is the only thing you really need to be careful about and nice that you have found a nice big meter. That will make things easier for you when you get to be my age
Nice! You will make good use of that.
Nice job Keith! I like your "low pedal" crank as well, great idea! I too built one a couple of years ago and enjoy using it. I also have the strobo spark that is more portable but I use both. I did use a Model T Valve Stem to make the pointer on mine.
Thanks for all the kind words guys, Actually the crank is an old park brake lever but looks about like a low speed pedal when cut down. The meter was a 10 buck ebay find and like John said I need a big one to see. John, I'm 61, I figured were about the same age. KB
