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.

Best Regards

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

stickpoke I did say ignore the vile screws ;D I just ran out of M2.5 socket-heads (almost as horrible) and can't face making a load of cheese-head screws just yet.
