Things are in the final stretch now Brian. Shouldn't be long before you have a nice runner there.

Beautiful and I think a great show piece.
I think people would really enjoy seeing that action.

Really nice looking engine, and I love how slow it can run.

So, how much of that is from the design of the engine, and how much is from it being 2x size?  Seems like the larger flywheel would really help allow it to turn slowly and keep going.

Nice engine, Brian. You should feel good about that!

I machined everything paying attention to accuracy so there would be minimal friction with all the parts assembled.
Fortunately the dimensions on the plans were spot on which eliminated any problems. The flywheel is not exact 2X scale. Used the material I had on hand.
