Would love to see some photos or details of your latest engine projects.
I have a Stirling helicopter 'on the rails', in fact most of the parts are done, so it should not take very long to finish it.
But another hobby absorbs all of my time this very moment(3D printing).
Have completed a Stuart 'progress' horizontal, now starting on a Stuart S50 stationary engine. see video link for the 'progress' https://youtu.be/Kna28seJScw ... hopefully the link works.
Also the link for the vertical S10... runs on 3-5 psi so well chuffed with it.
I'm making improvements to my boiler by installing a new burner for better combustion.
I'm working on a "Big Nick" by Bengs-Modelbau.
just started a 2" Burrell....... well started about 7 years ago, but i just did the fly wheel and nothing since then so it doesn't count
Just about done with the Snow Engine
About to begin the Howell V-4
Logging in my new engine build currently on HMEM.:thumbup:
I have a project coming up that will be a 3/4 inch scale PT boat. It will be modelled after the PT -103. The only mechanical work really being done will be the manufacture of a wet gear box dealing with a 1.2electric motor input to three output shafts with an adjustable ratio on the input
I have many but my main focus is on the Pacifier V4 engine.
LONG time lurker, delurking. I've fnally started a garden railroad engine, running with live steam on a radio control system. The engine is derived from one called the "Dacre", modified with Walschaerts valve gear (the original had no reverse). Might write a blog with the build in it.
Certainly not a new project but I continue to make progress on my Pacific engine and Goulds pump. I haven't been doing a very good job of posting updates.
Here is where I'm at with it today.
This is how it should look like.
I modified the original plans so I could use materials I have at hand.
I finally cosmetically finished my 1:5th scale Harley Evolution engine and am in the process of installing it in a rare Franklin Mint Conissour Edition Harley Heritage Softail diecast which are incredibly detailed and considered to be amoung if not the best Harley diecast ever made. I'm making many improvements to it also such as adding a clutch, working drive train and gear selector, actual working brake calipers and on and on. The engine can be made to run but I'm just installing an electric mitor to drive it, simulate starting with a button on the handlebar, running and reving up using the models throttle. It actually sounds very nice running like this. It will be mounted in a very nice custom decorated, lighted enclosure that will also include a 7" tablet with a video that details all the pieces in the engine on a soinning glass display and its assembly and will include a HDMI dongle that will allow the 1080p videos to be cast to a TV. I am obviously biased but I believe this just may be the nicest, mist detaile Franklim Mint Harley diecast in the world. So I will be looking for a "discriminating buyer" as they say and will probably contact Harley, Franklin Mint, Harley museums and similar first before putting it up for auction. Although money talks...
Holy Moly....! All these engines have a high drooling factor...!!
They all push my own project to the toy-department ...
Very nice work guys...!:thumbup:
Simply wow th_wavth_wav
do you have plans for the motor???
That is a real work of art. I truly admire you and the other machinist on here that have so much talent and skill. I have been trying to learn solidworks for 6 months now to do the exact same build. I now have a more positive outlook.
I am working on a 1/4 scale Gardner 3F. Still trying to research detail. Presently working on making a scale Bosch magneto. Although a real mag is not possible due to the physical sizes I am working on using spark igniter electronics and coil with an E90 battery all contained in the body I have attached preliminary drawing to give an idea of size
1/2 size Sorg engine made by scaling 3 photos with a 1" paint brush on the base. model = 9" flywheels
the piston is stationary and the cylinder moves
