Back at the Guildford show one of the other Guildford members showed us a small engine about twice the size of this one and that ran.

That was the Nano http://modelenginenews.org/~modeng74/nano/index.html

Those drawings look like an excellent starting point. But how are YOU going to cope, the dimensions are in INCHES

I have a magic CAD program you type in inches and it corrects it to real numbers automatically  ;)

But why not just draw it in metric in the first place and use nominal metric stock like a 3mm bearing and 2.5mm crankshaft rather than a 3.175 bearing and 2.38125mm shaft :ShakeHead:
