Bob, impressive work, you have obviously got lots more patience than I. A coincidence - before I saw the ring I hadn't heard of Villanova Uni (I'm on the other side of the pond) but this evening, on the radio, they interviewed the cosmologist Sean Carroll who did his first degree at guess where.
Steve.

Thanks Steve. 

Wow, he was there at the same time I was.  I don't recognize him from the Wiki photo; but I'd bet that our paths crossed back then.   It's not a big place.

Wow, Bob.  That is SMALL!  I knew it was small from the pictures and discussion, but seeing it next to the USB connector really did it for me.  The ring was good to, of course.  Nice picture! But I can relate to the USB connector quite well!  That thing is small.

Yeah gods Bob that's small!

Hope you don't suffer from hay fever or Chris elves will have a new toy!

Magic work!

Cheers Kerrin
Get excited and make something!

Thank you for the compliments gentlemen. 

I don't have a new video yet.  I was able to locate the cable.  However, I am not happy with the video I shot Tuesday. 

Tuesday night we had a family medical situation that involved the ER.  Everything thankfully turned out fine with that situation but it was scary.  Today everyone is home due to a snow storm; so shooting a video is out.

You guys stay warm, Bob. Looks pretty bad from what I am hearing down here in the sunny south. It was in the low 70's yesterday.

Bill,

We only got around nine inches.  East of us is supposed to get more.  We are going down to 14* F tonight.  Yesterday around noon we were in the high 50's with blue skies.  Go figure.

So, I made a new video and I am getting an error message when I try to upload it to YouTube.  "Unexpected error....". According to their "trouble shooting guide" it is on their part and to try again.  I did, several times, and it won't go.

I'm using an old PC running Vista which may be a contributing factor.  Technology is just great until it doesn't work.

This is the best I can do at this time. At least it shows it running.

That is just incredible!

Even though you mentioned the size, it wasn't till I saw that picture with the ring that it sunk in.

Wow!

What a great little engine  :)

I'd be curious to know what kinda a rpm it must be running at when it buzzes away like a bee.

I couldn't resist doing the maths - I reckon it's just over 1/1000 of a cc capacity !
