At our meeting last night, the guys got busy on the "new" hubs. Was the first time any of them had used an angle grinder. We then spent some time scraping pistons and then just turning the engine over and watching the magic of pistons and valves.

Keep 'em rolling.

I hate to criticize, but both the leader, and the scout should be wearing safety glasses, and or face shields. Neckerchief's should not be worn (can't tell in one picture) And I really would like to see the part secured better than in the leader's hands. Can't start too young to stress safety.
That being said, what a cool thing to do as Scouts. When I was a Boy Scout, I was fortunate enough to be in a troop with really great adult leaders. This is something they will keep in their memory for life.
Eagle cards are signed by the president of the United States, or at least they used to be. Mine is signed by Richard Nixon.

Everyone has stylish safety glasses. Don't worry about that. And the tool handlers aren't wearing a neckerchief, but thanks for keeping us straight. The cameraman couldn't do dirty work because of an injury, but he really liked turning the engine over.

Sewing is coming up soon. We'll be constructing our upholstery on a 1917 Singer.

Best

Mark
