Ahhh, a most interesting question!   I'd been thinking about that very thing for the past few days.  I believe it's going to be Stew Hart's Horizontal Potty Mill Engine.  I greatly prefer horizontal engines and that would be a good first one, I think.  I think I'm going to try purchase a cast flywheel and use scale fasteners from American Modeling to get a bit of a 'realistic' look. 

First though, I need to do a bit of work in my shop.  I have a DRO kit for my lathe that i want to install and I need to make a few misc tools.  I want to make some tailstock die holders and a 'pump-center' for my lathe.  I also have a 3 jaw chuck that needs to be rebuilt and a 6 jaw chuck that needs to have the jaws ground.   So, I hope to start a new build in a couple of weeks.

Thanks for watching this build!

Yes, I will share the drawings and the Fusion 360 model.  I'm making the last few corrections to the drawings and should finish that today or tomorrow and will post them.  The drawings will be accurate and you'll be able to build from them, but what will be missing is the tolerancing, so some judgement will be required.  For example, I have a .25 shaft going into a .250 hole.  That obviously won't work, but it will be up to the builder to figure out if the shaft should be made under or the hole made over and by how much.   I think the biggest value in these plans is that the air passage layouts are very clear, at least to me!  And the air admission passages into the cylinder are shown accurately.  Elmer's original drawings used a jig and the dimensioning was missing for these critical points.  Just fyi, it turns out that the cylinder oscillates 11.5 degrees from vertical so 23 degrees total.  Odd, but true!

FYI.

Nice job Mike, that's a lovely engine. It's a small aspect, but I especially like the fillet of braze you ended up with after turning it clean - looks really excellent!

Beautiful runner, very impressive.

I've just posted links to the Fusion 360 model and the PDF of the drawing set for this build.  They should be very close to correct as I made all the revisions/corrections that I found during the build process.  Additionally I've gone over the drawings pretty carefully to make sure that they are easy to understand and are as clear as possible.

Good luck if anyone decides to build this engine!

Mike.
