Can you build me a steam powered Rolex?!

Took me a minute to realize that giant green blob was an m&m!

Awesome work!

Congratulations on the build.
They sure test you're patience and you soon learn to keep the part on the parent stock as long as possible.
best wishes

Thanks Frazer and yes it was a good test of patients. 

Chris, thanks once again.  A steam powered Rolex is beyond my abilities.  There are people on this board that could do it I'm sure.

Nice work Bob.  I did get to see it at the show and was amazed at how small it really was.  I'm glad that you finally got it running, congratulations :ThumbsUp:

Cheers,
Phil

Thanks Dave, Don and Bill.

Bill  I don't understand.  I embedded the YouTube link in the first post.  JavaScript needs to be enabled for people to see it in that first post.  I'll see if I can get a plain link up.  Thanks.

-Bob


I tried, it automatically puts it as embedded player.  For people having trouble search Ultra Tiny or 90LX_Notch on You Tube.

Awesome Bob.

I remember seeing it at CF. I would have missed it had I not come up at the time people were talking about it.

A small suggestion for the next time you show...some big, really big, bright red arrows pointed towards the engine.
Maybe with some text like..."Yes...there's a working engine right here."
Anyone walking by would have thought it was a mere bit-o-brass.  ;D

Thank you Johnb.

Zee, you are absolutely correct about changing the way I displayed it.  A lot of people at the show suggested to have it under a magnifying glass.

Thanks Bill.  Maybe it's my equipment; but the link that you posted is, showing up as an embedded player like the one in my first post of this thread.

(Reposting from last weekend due to database loss.)

At Cabin Fever 2017 Ultra Tiny failed to run.  Upon an investigation into why, I discovered that the flywheel under certain circumstances would bind with the base of the column.  In order to correct this, I elected to shim the flywheel .003.  This was done by building a punch and die set to produce the necessary shim. (See: http://www.modelenginemaker.com/index.php/topic,6812.0.html)

The reason that I have brought this thread back from the grave is that there were a few people at Cabin Fever that expressed building a 1/4 scale Tiny.  I am going to include the reassembly of the engine going forward.
