    Congratulations Chuck! th_wav

    Steam (air) engines are a simple, straight forward concept, and so many excellent examples have been displayed on these pages, that it is rare to see something really new. I think the valving that you engineered for this engine is a fine example of original thinking. The overall design and the execution and finish ain't half bad either. Nice going!

    Chuck,

    Very well deserved recognition not only of your machining skills but your ability to think outside the square, (or should that be cylinder).

    Best Regards
    Bob

    Nicely done Chuck - well deserved.

    I just love anything that is innovative or applies a new twist to old ideas.

    Well executed to boot.

    Regards,
    Ken
