I would propose finishing up in no longer than 4 weeks.
Easy on the reins Man, the original TB schedule was 3 months we are shooting for two on TB4.

Very nice. Did you say 12L14 or Aluminum? In 12L14 the mass should make for a very smooth runner.

Either or........, but I am concerned about the lack of mass w/aluminium. This is my first engine, and I don't know how much weight it takes to get these things spinning?

1Hand, I would prefer a flywheel of 12L14 please. I do like your creative embellishment to the part. How would/do you plan on getting the lettering on them?

Good goin' there Matt. Have you considered (probably) adding the year "2011" to your logo? Just a thought. I'd love to see that machine of yours in action for real.

BTW, Pat, and fellow team members, I have perused my hardwood stock and have come up with enough stock for the bases. HOWEVER: six will be in Walnut and two will have to be made from White Oak. (we are making 8 engines correct?) If anyone has a preference, speak up now please and your selection will be noted.
