I've just achieved a significant milestone with this build in that I've just got it running on air

   :whoohoo:

Its runs a little lumpy because I only roughly centred the valves by eye and I had left some of the brackets lose so things should get better . I've still got to make the radius link to complete all the motion works but I'm very pleased that I've reached this important milestone.

A RUNNAH! That's a marvellous milestone, Stew!  :whoohoo:

It looks very, busy, with all the linkages moving in different directions.

Hope, you can persuade it to run forwards. Sometime soon......  :Lol:

Stew, that is so cool!  You should feel good about that!  Just love watching all that linkage go this-way-and-that!

Thanks for your support and encouragement chaps.

With a long term projects these important milestones help give your enthusiasm a boost. Once I have the last motion link made and after a little more tinkering, its going to be set aside whilst I get busy with a little short term project I have planned then I'm going to start on the tender, I have a part finished tender that I bought so I have a bit of a head start, once I have that finished it will be dusted off and a start made on finishing it off, but there is still a lot of work to be done on it.

Thanks again
Stew

Hi Stew

I have just watched your video  :ThumbsUp: :cartwheel: :whoohoo:

It must be fantastic to hear and see it run for the first time

I hope my Conway runs as well

Cheers
