My Virtual Engines
« on: July 24, 2012, 06:30:27 PM »
Just like to share some of my virtual engines that I can make while I sit here and watch some TV. 8)
As I get better setup in my workshop at least I will know what I want to make should have all right dimensions. :)

Nice work Ausdier

I particularly like the Corliss  :NotWorthy:

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!

very nice engines Ausdier

What scale is that horizontal corliss job, A corliss is an engine I've fancied doing but getting it at a size where it becomes posible to make the valve puts me off, toyed with the idea of doing one with an over scaled valve

Thanks for showing

Stew

A little bit of clearance never got in the way

I really like that one!!!   Im sitting here now working on my simple bar stock engine trying to get used to the software.  Maybe once I gain some more experence Ill try something like that.
