    thats a really good looking husky. I have the plans but not the notes and instructions. do you know what issue of Popular Mechanics it was from?

    looks like you even took the time to make your own screws which look really nice I might add.

    Nice looking engine. That is quite a polishing job.

    Hi, thank you for your feedback, it's my first build. I hope this works, here is the site where I found it..... http://npmccabe.tripod.com/steam.htm.
    I purchased the screws, but had to reduce the head diameter, as on the centre plate they fouled the cylinder.
    Brian Rupnow's beam engine next.
