    I have have just completed my first build and it runs. I'm very new to working with metal and at times thought I had bitten off more than I could chew but got there in the end. I made a few changes along the way mainly to utilise material that I had on hand. I'll try to load a movie also.

    OK so I can't upload a movie that I took with my ipad so I'll have to try the one I did with my camera. It's fairly crappy and has no sound unfortunately - and the sound is the best part. And again I get "Invalid File" - sorry, you will just have to take my word that it runs. If you saw the smile on my face you would know it does.

    Rather than trying to upload a video direct to the site, upload it to YouTube then post the link in your thread and the video will show up.

    Engine looks great btw :thumbup:.

    Pick,

    That's a very nice build. Nice, clean lines and contrasts between the different metals and the wooden base.

    I hope to see a video.

    Do you have another project in the works?

    Thanks SS. No, I haven't decided what's next, other than finish the disc sander that I started last year. [​IMG]

    Thanks Herbie. Your avatar looks very much like a Potty too - is it?
    Cheers John

    Hi Picko. I too noticed the similarity in our engines. I built mine from a site called " steam engines.org". The plans did not have a name and the site disappeared many years ago.
