        Where did you find the specs on a 1/16" pipe thread? Or is that 1/32"?

          Wow, that's impressive. To really appreciate the scale, I held a dime up to my screen, it was 1/3 the size of the dime in the picture.
          Well done.

                  It's hard for me to imagine doing anything that small, especially after just yesterday buying a pair of the strongest cheaters they sell. Nicely done.

                      For us non miniature people. Does this thing actually function ? Was it an exercise or does it go on
                      something like a little locomotive ?

                      I just can't imagine how tedious creating something like this would be.

                          No matter how many of these tiny engines and parts I've seen you guys make it always amazes me. Anything smaller than
                          a #4 thread is very scary to me these days!
