you can also buy 'machinable' ceramic in rounds...you can heat treat after machining if needed...the piece I played with was 1/2"x12". round.

Ø3/8 x 6" Macor good to 1000°F is about $40 at McMaster Carr, you can machine it with high speed steel though carbide obviously lasts longer. It also chips and breaks easier than Corian.

That’s a great running engine! Very nice, thanks for the video. I enjoyed the build, and seeing the results is the icing on the cake.

It appears that the needle valve goes straight through the throttle “plate” (barrel) to the main jet aperture. Really unique idea for a small engine, and one I considered for my Webster before just tossing in the towel and buying an RC carb.

Actually, I've seen a couple of designs on this forum that do this. I think one is originally by George Britnell, and at some point Brian Rupnow drew up a set of plans. I also recall Brian making a set of drawings for a "JAG" carburetor - not sure if that was his own design or not. So far I've only done the very simple but quite usable Chuck Fellows carburetor.

it is a rotary bushel
Is that a DIY design? I did a little searching but haven't found it (yet).

The Jag carburetor is a Malcolm Stride design. His original was in metric, I redrew it in inches. It does work very well.---Brian
