Congratulations Pete.

A beautifully built engine + great build = a well-deserved POM.

Thanks again for taking the time to post a log I enjoyed every bit of it.

Wow thanks everyone !!! This is something I never expected, I had no idea my little build would be spotted and seen as something that would be worthy of the project of the month. I have everyone on this site to thank for posting their work and showing how they carve metal to make all the wonderful machines on this site. I have learned a lot from the HMEM community and wouldn't have been able to build this engine without you !!!!
It will be awhile before I really believe it
Pete
