Thanks to everyone who has shown kindness and consideration in their complimentary posts, I am whelmed.

As promised this morning, here is a picture and a video of the mostly complete engine:



I think would make a much better banner photo so if someone with the power can make the substitution, I would appreciate it.



I will come back to this engine after I get #2 up and running. I haven't decided how best to mount them but I want to mount them on a common base. The other thing I would like to do is include a governor on this engine. It runs so well on such a small amount of air and responds to very small changes in air pressure that I think it should work well with a governor.

Congratulations Jerry.

I like the connecting rod action. Very interesting to watch.

Congratulations, Jerry. Very nice engine.

I was also over on youtube looking at some of your axial steam engines. Lots of interesting builds.

Jerry,
congradulations,

That is a very nice mechanical model to watch running, it takes some good precision machining to get it to run so smoothly at a slow pace, that is a marvelous achievement.

Keep up the great work.
