I'm always impressed by the people that can take a piece of roundstock and come up with something not round (e.g. the cylinder with the porting face).
are the plans you're using for this available somewhere, or are they your own design?
Looks like an interesting build - I'd like to try it.
The plans are from here
The first run, not the flywheel
these pdf gives a clearer view - the above site in not very readable
Thanks for a speedy reply
Thanks, will be helpful
Nice Work! Runs great even without a flywheel!
Hi Mirek, i am very interested in your cylinder making methods, could you please tell me the diameter of the brass bar you started with.
Hi, Terry, the material was 55mm in diameter
I already have a flywheel
Thank you Mirek i am not an experienced engineer like you and do not have the equipment you have, but i have a ML7 Myford lathe and Chester Mill and i am considering having a go as i think the engine is superb.
If you are able to solder then you can build up the cylinder quite easily, infact could probably just stick it together with JBWeld which saves a lot of material and milling time, similar sort of thing below
This looks fantastic,Mirek! What size is this cute little hacksaw?
