    Rob, Welcome to the forum. It looks like you have a lot to contribute.

    Your castings are wonderful. :bow: :bow: :bow: I didn't realize that they were your own castings when I read your first post. The flywheel casting is very clean looking.

    Do you plan to sell casting sets when you are done with the project??

    Please keep posting pictures of your engine during the build.

    Rob,

    What size is your Ericsson Rider engine? I built a 3" kit from Meyers last spring, I also have a 2" kit yet to be built.

    Nice work on your patterns.

    I have that same book you just posted. On Nov. 10th 2008 I posted a picture of the 3" Rider Ericsson I built last winter. I made my burner from a propane camp stove, I had to make a few modifications but it works great! It is the quietest thing I ever built, it gets allot of attention.

    I think he meant to say, "You have to make more castings !"

    Rob - you might want to try to sell your casting kits here on HMEM 1st. I think you'll quickly find some interested parties with very little effort ! (e.g. me :D )
