    Hi All,
    I often read the forum and I'm interested in making small engines. I've a question: where I can buy the production plans ? Here in France, we can't find the plans. Thank you very much for your help.

    Click 'Forums' upper left of the page and explore the Downloads forum. If what you want isn't there, post more specific info as to what type engine you want to build (steam, IC, Sterling) and I'm sure someone will point you to it.

    What is your skill level? Have you ever built an engine before? Do you want to build a steam engine, an air powered engine, or a gasoline powered engine. A great starter engine is the Webster. It is a nice internal combustion engine and just about everybody has built it. The drawings are a free download from the internet. I sell plans of some nice i.c. engines that I have designed and built, but they are a bit more complex than a "first engine".---Brian Rupnow

    Hi Brian
    Ive been looking at plans for a small engine build for a while now and the webster keeps popping up in my mind and plan to have a go at buildung one .I do have a question do you know if anyone has scaled up in size when building a webster ? .my lathe and mill are quite big and im not sure how well i would go making some of the smaller parts so i had an idea of building the engine slightly larger .Would this just be a case of increasing the diamentions on the drawing or would i run into othere issues ?any input appreciated.
    Regards Nat
