Hi Jeff, nicely done with the engine build...did you encounter any problems fitting the nuts to hold the Cylinder to the body of the engine... two things, one size Smaller nuts are available in most BA sizes...also I personally think the drawing pitch circle for the studs holding Cyl/ to engine body is a tad too small...I found this out the hard way on the Score build
All the best for now,
John.

Bob and John, Thanks for the kind words.

Yes I to think Diameter is too small, this is my third and on my other two I said the same thing, I think on my forth I will increase by about an 1/8 of an inch on the total diameter this will give me 1/16 a side.

I guess I should say I start with a file, then go to sand paper starting with 300 grit and working up to 600.
BTW I have just used the 300, I save the 600 until the very last.
Try some light oil with the w&d - makes a difference!

If you did, would you mind giving us all a blow-by-blow account of how you made the tool.

Thanks,

Sorry, but the oil cups are from PM Research. There is how ever an article in Issue 18 of Model Engine Builder on how to make them.

Jeff02:
That looks so nice it makes me want to build that model also, except being on disability and married now the kit prices tend to scare me towards bar stock type plans . Many years ago I built the 10V and it is a real good runner and catches everybody's attention when they see it running in my basement shop. I thought when I built it I wanted to run it on steam but the thought of building a safe boiler back in the 1970's scared me enough that I just run it with my air compressor.
Good work-------don

Very nice, Jeff.

I've been trying to think of a way to make engines look like they were cast but without actually casting them. Haven't gotten there yet.

I plan on doing some rounded edges, which will help a little.
