Good Job!, your effort echoes my first engine build, I did not have a lathe or milling machine either and yours looks better than mine did! Mine was a "fabricobbled" steam engine, it did run but poorly, the boiler was never made operational, ran the steam engine on compressed air. The entire base and frame was made of wood, the flywheel was an old iron caster wheel and the cylinder was a car brake wheel cylinder. Like your engine, it took a long time to complete. It was lost to a fire a few years back! I was about 14 or 15 at the time...

Thanks guys, it has been a while since I have had the old webster running, it needs new rings after I ran it so much! now I have got my own lathe and mill I am working on more ambitious projects, the diesel Kiwi.

You did a fantastic job not just at 14 or 15 but with the lack of real tools. I do not know where I would start and I doubt I would even finish.
Cheers
