    • This is the final "wrap up" of my geared horizontal engine. Painting and polishing has been completed, and there really is nothing further to do on this project. It has kept me entertained for a month, and shows that yes, the flywheels can be mounted on a geared shaft which is driven by a gear mounted on the crankshaft. I have seen this discussed many times, but the answers were always a bit ambiguous. This answers the question. Thank you for following my build thread.---Brian

        • Nice work, Brian. Thanks for sharing. I'm always interested how people solve problems. Not everyone shows problems, but for you, it's just part of the job.

          • Tim---I'm pretty sure of myself and my abilities, but there comes a point in every build where I think "Oh my God---I'm not going to be able to make this work, and people will think I'm a fool!!!" Fortunately, that seldom happens----but I do worry about it..

              • Thank you Ringo. It did go fairly quickly. It filled up 5 weeks of Covid Winter. All I have to do now is figure out what to do for the next four months.

                  ...... Well, I am hoping that you will take us into consideration and perhaps three more builds are in order.....
                  If it wasn't done the hard way, I didn't do it.

                      • Brian, as others have said, I fully enjoyed your journey through this build, and appreciate your sharing it with us. Good job, and looking forward to your next adventure.

                          • I've followed this semi regularly and today was my more or less weekly catchup. I'm glad I didn't miss the unveiling by many hours. Another very fine job on this Brian. I have to admit to not being sure about the gears as far as the overall look but I have to say that it came out spectacularly. That it would run was never in doubt. But when designing models like this there's that peculiar quality of visual artistry that is or isn't there. And I had my reservations at seeing the first 3D drawings. But seeing it in metal shows that it has "The Right Stuff". Or perhaps my mind simply got used to the look. Either way the pics a few posts above are showing a thing of beauty. And I'm thinking that your "heavy duty" control rods were the thing that really makes it pop. They form a nice visual compliment or balance to the cylinders below them.

                            • Ah, yes,,,

                              Yeah, Brian has that...........
                              it's a thing the rest of us cannot do, but we watch and wish we could do......

                              • My friends, you are talking about an ability that can be learned. I couldn't draw a cat freehand. Back in the mid 1960's I went through a very thorough apprenticeship in detail drafting, drawing with mechanical pencil on 36" x 48" sheets of vellum. There were many other aspects to the apprenticeship, but the main emphasis was on being able to visualize something in orthographic projection and put it down on paper so that it could be manufactured by the "Shop guys". I did learn, and I learned very well. I've just saved 44 drawings as pdf files so they can be opened by any computer without any special drawing software.
