Just a quick update, I managed to make the last few parts for the barring engine over Easter and curiosity got the better of me and I had to hook it up to the garage compressor to see what happened.
This was just a quick lash up with no regulator or control valve, but I was very pleased that it ran first time with no valve adjustments needed, I will fine tune it on final assembly but at least I can say something is nearly finished for a change.

Excuse the hurried video, I was running out of time.

I bet you all thought I had made some progress on Agnes and was posting up loads of new photo's.
Sorry to disappoint you, but all I am doing is testing out the Coppermine photo hosting site to see how it works before I too eventually get kicked out of Photobucket.

Actually I will very shortly have some new photo's to share, as I have almost finished the process of fitting hundreds (well it seemed like it) of Walnut floorboards to the engine base board.

Floor boards as promised. They are 3mm thick x 16mm wide solid Walnut all individually cut to size and stuck on with Gorilla glue and finished off with a few coats of Danish oil.

The two trophies were for the little Barring Engine at the Bradford MES annual exhibition last year.

Good heavens, if those cups are for the barring engine, the ones you get for the finished engine could be used as municipal water towers!

Spectacular work,
