Thank you for all the nice comments, fellows.  Someone should build one, Carl!

Dean, I am just now catching up on some posts, yours among them. Fantastic job too!!!  My eyes aren't up to that "smallness" these days, even with a magna-visor, but I still love the little engines. Thanks for sharing the build here.

Very nicely executed Dean, very nice indeed. That small stuff is just too, well er, um, small for these old eyes but gosh, you make it look so easy.     :hellno:  :insane: :ThumbsUp:

Excellent Dean.
This build log will be very useful for anyone wanting to build a wobbler. Even one quite a bit larger will follow these steps - except perhaps for a fancier flywheel - which could be its own build log.
Thanks for a great post.
