Very nice. It takes a lot of extra work to draw up plans. Much appreciated.

Hi Jeroen

Thank you VERY much indeed for the plans sir! - This is a definite build for me in future; especially as it uses materials I can get!

Kind regards, Arnold

Hi Jeroen,

Thanks for sharing your plans - this is now my next project while I pluck up courage to start on a traction engine - again!

I have a question though - how did you make the displacer? Did you turn and bore it from solid, spin it, draw it or what?

many thanks, Ian

Hi Ian,

the displacer was turned from solid, with the inner radius made with a drill-bit shaped especially for the job.
The inner radius is not critical, I just wanted to take out as much of the weight I could. After the drilling/boring the workpiece is flipped in the chuck and the outer radius is turned. Be sure to fill the displacer with a piece of scrap material of the correct size to prevent damage caused by the jaws or collet.

Good luck and keep us informed of your progress!

Jeroen

Hello,
Thanks for the plans, these are excellent. I might build one for my grandfather.

Right now I'm just modelling the engine in Solidworks but I can't find the drawings for the two rods that connect to the crank. I'm sure I can find a way to model it but I was wondering if I am misreading your drawings.

Thanks,
Xander
