Thank you all for the welcome!

It seems there is a good mix of experience and inexperience here, which is a good thing. Everyone has something to contribute and everyone can gain from it. The best part of inexperience is not knowing you "can't" do things that way. Sometimes I have to work too hard to think outside the box when I've been confined by it for so many years.

I've been looking over the site, lots to see, lots of talent here. I'm glad to be part of it and hope that I can contribute.

Kevin

Hi,Kevin.A warm welcome from "downunder".There's a great bunch of guys here always willing to help,without any ego's getting in the way.We can always use the thoughts of a machinist,whether he's a "hands on"man or a CNC buff.Each has their place in the greater scheme of things.

My current project is a 4 cylinder oscillating steam engine derived from Jan Gunnarsson's (sorry if missspelt) plans. I am fairly well along and will try to post some pics in another thread.

Cheers,
Jeff
Welcome to the forum!.

That 4 cylinder engine by Jan G. has been on my list of engines I would like to build for quite a while! The plans are metric which poses a small problem that I need to overcome. ::)

Simply start a thread under "work in progress" or for completed engines in the "photos" section of the forum. I would love to see your pics, and I'm sure others would too! ;D

Thanks so much for the warm welcome ;D

I found a couple of photos to share- one is my "old" school project with a miniature, much more recent engine in its shadow, and one (not mine) of the V-4. Yes, I will take some shots of my build and make a new post...

Welcome Jeff.

I saw an engine like that for sale on e-bay not that long ago and thought that it would be nice to build one. Where did you get the plans?
