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.

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?
