Nice. Is that wrinkle paint on the black parts?

Mark T
Yes, it is wrinkle paint. The main cylinder block is naval brass, glass beaded, painted. The “T” rods are brass, nickel plated.
The engine runs really nice and will throttle down slow.
Thanks for the kind words!

As happened on my last build, Mark's Holt 75 build, at the 11 hour just before my final post another member swooped in and posted their completed engine. Now a story doesn't need two endings so I am closing this build log and moving on.

I will post photos and a video of my completed engine on a new thread soon. A big thanks to those that have been following along.

Mark's Bernays's steam engine completed

If you are thinking of building this engine I would not recommend making the block from aluminum. This engine needs to be heavy as there is a lot of mass being thrust up and down and you can only offset this with weights to a point. After that you will get out of balance laterally.

Thanks for following along.
