Thanks for that info Jason I'll have a go at making a removable jet and needle today.

Here's a three minute video of my Economy engine running this afternoon. The focus isn't as sharp as I'd like, perhaps the light wasn't right.



I haven't sorted out the mixer yet, the engine is using one borrowed from my Alyn Foundry RLE engine.

It sure sounds good Andy!! Can you just make a copy of the mixer from the RLE engine to use on this one since it seems to work quite well on the Economy?  The paint work is fantastic too!!!

Hi Bill, I have to admit that I made a copy of the RLE mixer but it didn't function anywhere near as well as the original which I made about 20 years ago - must have been a fluke. Reckon the problem is making the needle, I'm thinking of using a gramophone needle for my next attempt.
