    Looking real good Paolo.

    I see you have no trouble with your silver soldering.
    It is a good method of making a complicated part from more than one easily machined component.
    Very well done, can't wait to see more.

    I had to suspend my work because my rotary table had a failure so i decided to make one, while I was waiting for a new reamers and mandrels set, using an old live center...

    Paolo: That rotary table you made looks really interesting. I would like to see more of the details of it and a sketch of the assembly. What a great thing to make "while awaiting tooling to arrive", to me that table would be a whole project in itself.
    Congratulations on a great job.

    I take this pictures before the final assembly. I did It with screws and an Epoxy adhesive to avoid any possible vibration...

    Hi Paulo,
    My first engine was a single. Not as pretty as yours but she runs well.

    Your engine is coming out beautiful. Please do keep up the posts/pictures!

    Warm Regards,

    Dave

    Hi Paulo,

    Looks like a 3/4 x 3/4 single along the lines of a Stuart 10

    Nice work! How are the cylinder ports constructed?
