Interesting video... Kept waiting for them to talk about the model steeple engine sitting on the table  ::)

I thought recognised it: the first engine drawing was of the 1884 Whitacre Pumping Station Engine  :). It was a twin vertical compound differential engine (Cornish cycle), later superseded by a rotative triple expansion engine and a turbine set in 1936 and then electric motors  :wallbang:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Pumping_Station,_Whitacre_Waterworks

Finally got the new picture in and hung.
Thank you Dave and Ron for your recommendation of Todd Cahill.
I am partial to artwork with fine detail and his is amazing.

Thanks,

John

That is a very nice picture John.

Did you change the color of your office? It looks different than the earlier picture.

Jim:  I changed from the curly florescent last forever bulbs to a more yellow LED last forever bulb.  They are more yellow than an incandescent bulb and I am not sure how much I like them.  Turns the blue quite green but I will live with it for a while before I change again.

John,

That looks a fantastic workshop environment and set up you have there.  :)
.

I have lot's of 'art' for my walls if needed. - Here is a link. (Not safe for work) of an image I took a few years ago.

This is what happens if you use the wrong size spanner.!!  :LittleDevil:

If anyone can guess the size of spanner I used you get a free box of chocolates in the post.

Not sure of the size of the wrench but my fist thought was, I hope the wrench doesn't rust! It's and age thing.

I am happy to hear you like Todd's work. I have one and love it.

Just to show the awesome detail could you take a closeup photo and show the tiny dots.

I just cannot believe he can sit and draw that many dots and get the final image.

Ron: Thanks again for your recommendation, I am very pleased.
If you look at the DETAIL 1 picture you can see where I added a tiny red circle.  In the DETAIL 2 picture is a closeup showing the detail.  I real life that detail is only about 3/8" square.  And the whole picture is all that detailed, just spectacular!

Eric:  Thank you and I love spending time there.  The windows look out over a meadow with the Stop River (more like a big stream) running through it.  I get regular visits from all kinds of wild life.  And it is QUIET! At my age, much appreciated.
