So as far as projects go, nothing until I first learn how to use my chisels. Once I know my Atlas model 618 and Shopmaster (still trying to ID it) inside and out, I will make some throw away pieces as practice, then the long term goal will be to make a practical steam engine capable of driving a 1 kw generator. You know, as sort of a "apocalypse" preparation LOL, a generator for when the electricity is gone, gas is not available etc. As long as I have wood and water I can make electricity! (Of course, solar panels and wind power are just as good except I cannot rebuild a solar panel if it breaks, and it seems to me to be easier to rebuild a steam engine than a wind turbine.)

But before I graduate to such a task I will have to make several models that work.

I will upload some photos of the Shopmaster when I get a chance, it is still in my late father's shed (a shed the size of a single wide trailer!), but when I bring it home I will need some help in identifying it unless I can make out the model off of the mfg. label.

Cheers

Hello,
my name is Frantisek, 37 years old and I live in the Czech Republik. I'm building and playing with steam or stirling engines.
Now, after reading this forum, I decided to build amazing Gerry's beam engine. One problem for me is re-count all holes to metric. Sorry for my english.

Welcome to the forum FuN.
I hope you have a camera.

I was in Prague about a year ago. It was a wonderful experience.
