I started my project...
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.
Ciao, Paolo, looks great so far!, what engine is that going to be?, by the way I'm coming down to Rome after easter, I'll try to call in to meet you.
Those pieces look great. Keep up the good work and will be looking forward to seeing more.
Thank You..All....Is a my personal point of view of one steam engine project...if it will run..I'll post the drawings.
Nice work. I can't wait to see the finished engine. ;D
Thats looking pretty good. Your own design? Can't wait to see it done.
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.
OK...I'll post more pics for the final assembling...
I take this pictures before the final assembly. I did It with screws and an Epoxy adhesive to avoid any possible vibration...
Table and live center body
The base and brass nut
That rotary table is just too cool!!. Where did the degree wheel come from?
Was a present from one of my best friends...it cames from an old Aeronautical gyro..!
Tell me more about your engine..?
A single, double?
I started my project using the VR75 ,an Elmer’s engine, as a reference...It will be a reversible single cylinder engine
I Hope... :big: :big:
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!
"Show must go on": cilinder bored reamed and sanded, lagging done,crosshead guide turned bored and reamed, connecting rod quite done, crankshaft almost done, crosshead and rod quite done....I'm a little tired now...
Looks like a 3/4 x 3/4 single along the lines of a Stuart 10
Nice work! How are the cylinder ports constructed?
The third step...
The standard components together just to show
Connecting rod just done
Complimenti Paolo!, looking great so far!.
