    Default Building a steam launch

    One of our (NEMES) members, Dave Piper, presented a progam at our May meeting about his trials and tribulations building his steam launch. He designed the engine, made patterns, had the parts cast and did the machining himself as well as building the hull.

    The file is a PDF and quite large so give it a moment or few to download.

    Erroll, thanks for that, simply amazing, I'm trying to think of a home shop effort that isn't humbled by it.
