    Elmer's Beam #24

    Here is my completed Elmer's Beam engine. I built this last winter but never got around to posting it. I decided to go with a curved spoke flywheel which I think turned out pretty good. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6SzkT1paxQ

    Kerzel Hit and Miss

    I finally got started on my first IC engine, the Kerzel Hit and Miss. Here is the start of the cylinder body. First I milled a chunk of aluminum to size. I used my new boring head as a flycutter and it worked very well. I drilled out the bore with a 1/2 inch drill, then a 3/4 inch endmill...

    First IC engine suggestions

    As I am getting close to finishing my sixth steam engine, I am thinking my next engine will be an internal combustion engine. I am thinking of building either the Webster or Jan Ridders Simple 2-Stroke. I am leaning towards the 2-stroke figuring that it may be easier as there are no valves...

    Elmer's Geared #5

    Here is the start of my build of Elmer's geared. This is my favorite of Elmer's. I have put off building this one because of the cost of the gears but I came to the realization that they will most likely not get any cheaper and I knew that I would definitely build this one someday. When...

    X2 mill digital displays

    I added digital displays from Grizzly to my mill. I decided to go with the stainless steel ones as opposed to the aluminum ones. The stainless ones are supposed to have better accuracy. I haven't used the mill yet since installing them. I know these don't compare to a real DRO but it should...

    CDCO reamers

    Has anyone bought a chucking reamer set from http://www.cdcotools.com/? I am looking to buy a set and these seem to be the cheapest I could find. I am not expecting great quality, but are they OK for hobby use? If these are not worth buying I am looking for recommendations for a good value...

    Elmer's Grasshopper

    Here is my finished Elmer's Grasshopper. It is my third engine after Elmer's Wobbler and Standby. I am very pleased with how it turned out. It runs well with my air pressure gauge barely coming off of zero.

    Elmer's Grasshopper

    Here is the start of Elmer's grasshopper I am building. This is my third engine after successfully making Elmer's Wobbler and Standby. After making those two which are quite similar, I wanted to do something that was quite different and I like the way the grasshopper looks when running so I...

    Hello from Wisconsin

    After lurking for a while I thought I should join and introduce myself. I bought a x2 mill and 7x12 lathe this summer and have been learning as I go. As a beginner I have found this forum extremely informative yet intimidating considering the quality and complexity of many of the members work...
