Hi All

This night I finished my last part for the engine, and after very few ajustments it actually was running - Life is so wonderful

Hey,
Beautiful engine!!! Neat design, kinda like an underslung beam engine. Where did you see the plans, I'd love to put it on my too-do list. The size looks right too. Great job. Fred

Fluted columns and all, very nice. How did you pocket and contour those arms? Looks like some tedious work there.

Hi All
Thanks for the kind words.

The engine is build after my own design, inspired mainly from the story from this web-site :

http://www.nordevall.com/

The fluted columns, was very easy to do, as I made a simple helping tool that I could use on my milling attacment on the lathe
