Default Rumely CAD Files

I'm building a 3D printer for grins and possibly in the future for printing core parts for cast molds.

One thing I would like to possibly print are scale parts for an Oil Pull and put it together as a model. With all the scale work that has been done over the years, does anyone know if the AutoCAD work has already been done and may be available for purchase? If so, it would save a ton of time.

I might be interested in this project. I am working on a long term project building 3 running model F (16-30) 1/16th scale tractors (Yes, 1/16th scale!). The crank case may look simple but is a nightmare to get right/fabicate. Having that part in cast or bronze would be really cool. Other parts that would be cool would be gear(diff.) blanks, clutch thowout support, flywheel, clutch pulley and wheel hub castings.

Keep us in the loop!

Forrest, are you doing 15-30 F's or 16-30 H's?

There must be some cad files from the Model E toy they were building, I remember seeing the rapid proto types of the parts. I believe Jamie Stevenson in Whitewater WI was heading this up originally.

If you have a copy of the original blueprints you can re-draw them in a (solid's based) cad program such as Catia or Solid Edge or Solid Works.

If you can not find any drawings I would look at getting the parts scanned by a 3D scanner. Just make sure you get something other then an .stl file, .step/.stp would be preferable.

If I can help please let me know?

I had forgotten about those scale Es! I think I actually had an order in on one. I just searched the stak and can't find any pictures of them. What ever happened to that project?

Edit:

Here is one I just found made of wood. Looks beautiful.

AFAIK they built the Pewter one for the 150th show and then the project had problems so they gave everybody back their money. I believe somebody did take over the project (model builder).

I am working on a long term project building 3 running model F (16-30) 1/16th scale tractors (Yes, 1/16th scale!).

I have some parts that are close to being finished. The last tractor I built took 7 years to complete and there was no plans or off the shelf parts for it. I started the first parts for these new tractors about five years ago but have done very little in that time. Life has gotten into the way for now.

I think it was the HP that was throwing him off since the model F is 15-30 or 18-35 and the H is 16-30.


Of course, who would really spend a lot of time building a running scale H?

I should add the F was rated at 16-30 later on in production and that is one I have chosen to copy. For those who have not looked closely at the model F you would be surprised to know that there many iterations of that model. For one to build a scale model of an F you need to choose when version to copy. When I first started this project I had no idea as to what I was getting into... The F might seem to have been built at a time when things looked simple but there is nothing simple when it comes to building a scale one.

I'm pretty sure the F was never rated at 16-30.

In 1918, the F was re-rated to 18-35. Our F is a true 1918, with 18-35 stamped on the tag.

There are indeed a ton of changes over their 8 year span.

Forrest I meant no disrespect but I agree with JT that I have never seen a reference to an "F" as a 16-30. As JT's late "F" is an 18-35, my 1911 "F" serial number 5459 is a 15-30.

Mike...This is exactly what I'm talking about. Is this Jamie Stevenson's work?

Under the tree is the model we financed the original tooling for with our $350 deposit which was refunded. Jamie helped organize the program. I feel that the failure for the program to materialize was due to the modelmaker's planning, design and estimating errors.
Who has that nice wood model? I'd rather have it!
I never heard of an F rated 16-30 either.

Stevenson was president of the Rumely Product Collectors when the model project was initiated.......I ordered one too.
Various problems with castings and whatnot brought the project to an end.
Another builder took on the project.
Stak member Steve Barr knows more about it than anyone.......
