    Congratulations

    That is beautiful and I like the use of different materials that complement each other.

    Wow, super nice job on a beam engine. The Ford Museum in Michigan has a good example of this type of engine. Did you obtain plans or develop them yourself?

    I knew the basic operation and designed my model using DraftSight software... a great tool. I enjoyed the designing as much as the build. I planned to publish my prints, but unfortunately lost it all. Don't ask me how, it's painfull.
