I hope your health improves windy, as I'd very much like to see more of this
All the best

stop paying your credit card bills and see how fast they get in touch with youUPDATE:
E-mailed "My Hobby Shop" about them sending me incomplete plans. They promptly replied with apologies, and an offer for a full refund of my money. They said they'd make arrangements and get back to me. That was almost one month ago, and I have heard nothing from them.
Now, I have to try to stop payments on my credit card. Too much work for some drawings!
Attempted to contact my credit card Customer Service Dept. What a joke! 20 minutes pressing this, and, pressing that, listening to menus etc. and, I still couldn't connect to any human being to help me stop a payment! Just computer-generated, robotic-voice, crap!! Blood pressure at stroke levels.
Here's the kick in the butt... just opened my credit statement, and read that "My Hobby Shop" gave me credit for the drawings. God forbid they would have notified me with an e-mail to tell me, and let me know that a refund was applied to my account.
I'm sorry I ever sent for the drawings.
Depending what you want to use a flash steam power plant for if model hydroplanes have a look at On the Wire website.An old thread, but I have been enjoying reading through as I contemplate a venture into flash steam Hydroplanes.
Thank you for posting and inspiring..
Interesting! Did you know modern diesel engines can have molybdenum coated skirts on their pistons for scuffing resistance and low friction = more power at the crank? ( My wife told me " every girl needs a little black skirt!").At one time you were looking for an alternative cylinder lubricant. I found information about this Teflon coating in another steam forum.
"I picked up this great Teflon coating spray from Grainger that works really well. These sprays were originally marketed for non-stick cookware resurfacing...but due to the toxicity of Teflon fumes when overheated, they now call it simply “dry lubricant” for liability reasons. It actually bonds to metal surprisingly well...but takes several days to coat and re-coat it sufficiently. I plan on coating both the cam and lifter contact surfaces with it to keep the friction down...I did this to hydraulic gear pump components with good results, using it as a high pressure water pump"
Steamchick, thank you for your reply, this looks like a really nice engine, I will study more..
