    Well, we had a few problems and decided to change the design of the collet to use an e-clip instead of a slotted retainer.

    It only took a few hours once I got set up for it.

    The slotted retainers and the modified ones are on there way to Dave (hi speed scrap).

    I love this build. I downloaded a set of these plans a while back but had a couple of things that got in the way of starting (My skill level, and lack of French). This is building season now and this Down Under version is looking great.
    Ausdier – love your work. I always 3D model everything I try, it helps me get a feel for just what’s going to be required. Heck I’m a way better machinist in 3D than I am in the shop.
    Hi-speed-scrap - if your “shed is an oven!” You’re welcome to use mine. I can run an extension cord out there for ya.
    Excellent work all. Can’t wait to see it run.

    Boy that looks pretty. The only snow I've ever seen was about 1/4" thick in spots on the ground. Next winter, finances permitting, I'll think drag the kids the 3000 miles to the nearest snowfield and pepper 'em with snowballs.

    Did the flywheels a while back, but have been distracted by other projects.

    I'm ready to send out the flywheels. Some of them are a bit rough but I've since improved my skills.

    Build something loud so it can be called "the thunder from down under".

    Sounds good to me. Will send address via pm. Just wondering if the valves and springs are done yet. I think High speed Scrap was looking after them.
