Great Job Mike, nothing like the feeling of making an engine and seeing it run.

The video showed just fine here. Now how about a video of the jig?

Great job Mike, it always makes me smile to finally get one to run after hours of metal removal.

I only dance jigs when a steal swarf comes off the lathe and attaches to my person somewhere. Last time it was to my upper lip and I smelled burning flesh before the pain hit. I danced a heck of a jig on that one. ;D

Guys,

First off thanks for these replies.
Also a huge thanks to all the members who have helped me turn this:



into this:




(can you believe I took 380 photos!)

Still too elated to think about the next one at the moment..

Roy & Brian.
If it helps I've posted a source for a quite good (& free) video software program:

Especial thanks to John / Bogs, if you're reading this, thanks for the invite from away back , if the offer's still on, I may yet need to avail myself of a visit.

And also to Jim, helping me see the way to the mountain top - the view from there is pretty good!


Mike

There is nothing like the first one. It has been some time since my first but it did hook me. I like the challenge and you I believe will also as you find more and more you just have to do.
GOOD JOB!!!!

Mike the victory can only be all the sweeter when you consider the uphill battle you've waged from a cold start. I've watched your progress with a keen eye and you never wavered.... even against some pretty large odds. I'm impressed with the results and proud of you for displaying such determination and perseverance. Something that seems to be a rarity these days. Takes some guts to perform your first build right out there in the public eye.... eh?

Ya done good..... CONGRATS!!!
