    Very nice---Thank you for the pics and videos. Whats the deal with the beam type engine that is also pumping water? Is it a dual purpose engine that pumps water and at the same time turns a flywheel to provide rotary motion?--I'm not sure what I'm seeing there.---Brian

      Brian:

      I don't really know but I can try to find out more about it.

      BTW I have very much enjoyed your articles about your beam engine. I have downloaded the plans and will be adding them to my collection at school.

      When we start the new school year next Wednsday I will be informing my juniors that they will be required to complete a WORKING model engine to be eligible for graduation. Maximum of two kids working together and the time limit will be December 09 when we have our open house and shop fair. We will see how it goes.

        Thanks Errol--Yes, if you find out more about that beam engine, I would be interested. Better let yout kids stick to wobblers---They are fun to build, don't require a lot of sophisticated machining, and easy to make run.---brian
