    An interesting post. I'm not sure that I am visualizing correctly what you said. A picture is worth a thousand words. th_wwp SAM

    "Nina", a Gauge 1, 0-4-0 live steamer. Progress and updates

    Bob, I just saw your videos and Nina looks good and runs like a scalded cat. Maybe you can start a locomotive drag racing club. I'm looking forward to seeing what Nina has in store for us next. SAM

    Tiny Inline 4 Cylinder IC

    Kel, You are off to a great start. You make it seem so easy, but I know better. How about an evaporative cooling system. Build a catch pan below the engine and pump water over the engine and let it run down on the outside. I will be following this build closely. SAM

    Asta Lavista Baby

    Isn't it amazing how much time can be consumed trying to make this wonderful, labor saving device work. Have you noticed how computers have made us paperless. Now everyone in the world has a paper consuming printer in their home. I have paper everywhere. Time to go shred more paper. SAM

    surface grinder sort of

    Goofy, Clever. Just make sure you cover up your machine so that you do not get any grinding dust on it. As you know, that dust will grind your machined surfaces away if not cleaned up. SAM
