    Almost finished this one, thought I'd bung it in here rather than 'work in progress' as there's no build diary. It's a first assembly and needs a lot of cleaning up as mostly fabricated construction so sorry about the poor finish - ignore the vile fasteners too! Not yet ready to run as it needs some more amateur fettling.

    Looks pretty good. Clean it up a bit and show us a video of it running!

    Way to go Paul! Looks good, a bit of TLC and your all set. I guess you were able to get all of the holes in that central valve column sorted out after all ;D Man that is a way cool looking engine.

    Thanks all, hope to have it running before too long, I need to find (or wind) some 3mm OD springs.

    Bob, well spotted ;D, it was designed to drive a model paddle steamer (but not by me Woodguy!).

    Chuck, it's 14mmx14mm... roughly!.

    Great design Paul, but please shoot the pozidrive screws out. It's a little bit shocking when I see the quality of machining and finishing
    th_rulze And th_wwp (more!)
