Default Our own pattern maker

Benjamin is a talented young man and among his talents is this one: pattern making
He and his family SHOULD be receiving these cast steel Mogul connecting rods today.
A friend of mine stopped by yesterday with the rods and Benjamin's masterpiece pattern.......

Yup. And he's got plenty of engineering drawings heading his dad's way.

I literally had THAT pattern in my hands a couple of months ago, and let me say that it is absolutley beautiful. Pictures just don't show how nice it is. It is made up of MANY separate pieces, and is a true piece of art. Benjamin does great work!!!

Ben's dad enjoyed showing us the pattern and you could tell he was a proud papa, as well he should be. Keep up the good work Benjamin!

Darwin Seffrood is the 'go-to guy' in our neck of the woods for connecting rods if you can afford him.

Seemed like kind of a goofy kid back in school, but he has impressed the hell out of me in recent years with some of the stuff he's done. A good portion of the top Pro-Stock pulling tractors around the country have his connecting rods in them. He's cut and welded crankshafts together to make stroker cranks for a couple of them, hollowed out an iron head to fit over an aluminum one (not allowed to run aluminum in some classes), and many other tricks over the years. I stopped to check out his shop one day when he was making a set of copper head gaskets for one of the tractors and was surprised to find that all he has in his shop is a pair of bridgeports and a small lathe, but he can do damn near anything with them.

Good pattern makers are hard to come by though, and it looks like you've got a winner up there.
