Been hanging around here for a while now and I must say I have learned a lot "and have a lot more to learn" but never got around to saying hello. I am a diesel mechanic by trade and I love old engines, a friend introduced me to model engineering about 2 years ago and I am addicted since.
Hear is a link to my engines, they are a bit rough around the edges but they run.

Howdy there, Bob.
Looks like a nice engine to me.
I'm new to small engines and haven't built one yet.
From all the studying I have done here I see my list growing for the tooling I need to get first.
I can see this becoming an addiction. :hDe:

Greetings Vince, from SE USA.

Where is Eire?

Your engines look good to me, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I rarely see a model engine I dislike.

Hi,
Very nice engine builds :)
Is there a way to contact you directly? (regarding the loyal cycle engine)
I'm struggling with some design problems with a project very similar to what you have done
And it looks like you have nailed it :)

Cheers
Boaz

I love the variation on Henry’s Kitchen Sink Engine! Great work-around on cooling, carburetion, valves, and of course hit-n-miss operation.

Nice bit of engineering there, congratulations on a great runner!
