    After finally moving my lathe and milling machine back into my garage after storing them elsewhere for 2 years whilst we built a new house, I thought that the first project should be something easy. Decided to build a Beam Engine using the plans from Model Engine Builder magazine. Modified it a bit from the drawings to suit my preferences and still have a couple of bits to change until I'm finally happy.
    Already working on the next model, another Beam Engine.

    Nice work Swifty. The wooden beam is a nice authentic touch.
