I am interested - at least this time I know what I'm getting into and I have my lathe so I'm good to go.

I've emailed Jan for the drawings - once I've had a look I'll be able to comment a little more intelligently.

I just recieved the drawings from Jan, and I must say this will be a
challenge. If this is picked for the team build, I would favor keeping
the metric dimesions and fasteners as much as possible to eliminate
confusion. Eight to ten team members would be needed, any takers?

Speedy...

I've seen your work ... nice!
I think you can build anything for the build. Reconsider and give it a try!

So who is interested?

Dale (dlem9) ............?
Maverick .................?
Mike (ninefingers) .....?
Michael (speedy).......?
Pat H. (path) ...........In

Anyone else??

After looking at the drawings I think there are several areas of concerns:

1. Mini Spark Igniter ... requires electrical modification to a store bought item. Jan does go into detail on how to do that.
2. Vapor carburetor. Brian Rupnow made an earlier version of the Atkinson and ended up with a conventional carburetor.
3. Buying the glass tube.


Maverick ... think your right to keep it in metric. I will be making my own drawing in SW so that I can CNC parts and assemble it.

Comments ...

Pat,
I'm good with Jan's Atkinson but should we wait for more members
till the project is choosen or choose the project and see who shows up to build it? If the latter, we can divide the parts into groups to get an
idea of team size. Your concerns are valid but nothing that can't be
worked out. I am rather looking forward to building a vapor carburetor
since I read Jans comments on it.

Regards,
Maverick

Maverick,

I'm hoping that Dale, Mike and Michael will join in for the team build and others.
Since the post is 2 weeks old and we have had over 500 hundred views (with duplicates), I think those who are interested in a team build would have inquired about it by now. But let's give it until say Monday the 29th before we move forward. Admittedly, I would like to build this Atkinson this time around, but not locked in ... yet!

I don't have any problem just 2 on the team, but would like more.

Agreed about those 3 issues that I mentioned ... just a starting point for some discussion.


Later,

Pat H

I think I'll sit this one out if the Jan's Atkinson is selected. Nothing wrong with it but the more I think about it the less enthusiastic I am about it.
I'd prefer an air or steam engine again personally as I'd like to be able to run inside without fumigating the place. Maybe a vertical or horizontal engine with a slide valve...just thinking out loud..

Like Path said, it's not locked in. If a steam engine, a vertical marine
type would be interesting. If anyone has any other ideas, go ahead and
put them out there. Don't be shy.
