Thank You! And no I haven't tried placing a load on it with my hand or otherwise. I did not even make the optional drive pulley as I wasn't planning on using the engine for anything other than building a running engine. If it's like my others it will get put on display in our living room never to be ran again.2kmoss,
Very Well Done. The paint and polish makes it attractive to look at and the video shows that it runs very well. I also like the brass touches here an there.
Have you tried putting a load on it to see it you get a different pattern of hits versus misses?
