Build Log

Banckert Tug


I started building my Banckert, I think Billing Boats forgot to add the instructions with the pictures. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, Well Iím speechless.
I have built the Billing Dragon sailboat, I think the instructions were better.

I found a old 7.2 V. drill, it has a Johnson motor. The motor works so I will use it, I think it's a 550 or 600. I did not like the wood rudders so I made new aluminum oneís.

Last night I made a oil tube for the stuffing box. I made the top funnel shaped, and threaded it for a plug.
Iím using Neoprene ďOĒ rings for the seals, has anyone done this, will it work?
Thanks

Don,
Will it work? Sure. Got to be sort of carefull with the 'O' rings, not too tight a fit on the shaft (tight fit = brake, like you didn't know that, right - lol?). Without getting into a big discussion about what you use for oil, not all petroleum products are compatible with plastics or whatever 'O' rings are made of. Just a word of warning...

Thanks Doc,
''O'' rings are Neoprene, should work with almost any oil.

Don,
I certainly hope you're right. Being a good learner from mistakes, the worst the mistake, the better I learn, all 'O'rings are not compatible with brake fluids, for example. Unfortunately, those 'O' rings were not on a model. Didn't kill myself, but took years to remove the stains from the upholstery (the line-boy wondered what the smell was - LOL).

LtDoc, Who would have O-rings that small, a plumbing supply place? If not there, do auto parts places have them that small? Thanks.
Bill

PS - hope you're safe from the fires over there.

my local hardware store carries o-rings from 3/32"(plumbing), autoparts may have them for carburators.

I used "Permatex WL-9" white lithium grease in my stuffing boxes. Works really well to keep the water out.

To answer my own question, yes, local auto parts places do have a small cabinet with a very large selection of O-rings. The smallest that NAPA had was a perfect fit for my 1/8 inch prop shaft. The price was right - 37 cents each. They're supposedly made of neoprene, which should be oil-compatible.
My local well-equipped plumbing supply house didn't have anything close to what I needed.

For many years I have used 'Dow Corning DC4 (used to be MS4) Silicon Compound' when sealing 'O' rings. it is also a great a waterproofer.

One can also make your own 'O' rings by buying lenghts of the rubber, cutting with a scaple and then glueing the two ends with CA glue.

Ready for sea trials, made a motor mount and couplers for the prop shaft.
I added wood reinforcements to the bow, and some Styrofoam for floatation.
I made a brass bracket for the oil tube. I installed a JR Beat Gear radio and Traxxas
ESC for the sea trials.

The sea trials went good. It didnít sink.
Iíve been working on the cabin, the kit didnít come with a instrument panel
so I made one.
The kit came with plastic portholes, I didnít like them. I went to Hancock Fabrics and got some brass eyelets, and used them. Next I will be putting lights on the mast.
