Arnold,
 What a nice build.  I remember referencing this build when I built my own.  You are truly an inspiration!  :NotWorthy:

Thanks for that Arnold!  I think I'll have my Son build that one first....

 I do remember and miss Vernon as well.

Thanks Arnold for posting this build log.  It's the first time I saw it and have been through it from start to finish.  Really enjoyed it.

Carl, Dave, Ronald, Steamer & Vince, thanks gents  :NotWorthy:
This was my second running engine; the first was one of the rocking engines from the craze that swept back then.

Dave (Steamer), I think this engine is just about perfect as a beginner's model.  Not too small, but small enough that mistakes aren't expensive in material terms.  It's a good runner as well, and well suited to the most basic tooling  :ThumbsUp:

Kind regards, Arnold
Building an engine takes Patience, Planning, Preparation and Machining.
Procrastination is nearly the same, but it precludes machining.
Thus, an engine will only be built once the procrastination stops and the machining begins!

Nice build arnold, and I will surely be looking for the others when you get the time. I agree with Dean also, this is a good one for beginners and experienced alike, so thanks for sharing it again.
