Completed Maudslay Steam Engine
« on: September 02, 2018, 02:16:19 AM »
I'm calling this engine completed.  The last bit to add was the reversing lever and linkage.  Actually took me 2 days to make those fiddley little parts! 


Lapping the valve and valve body took care of the last of the leaks.  About the only air sound audible now is the exhaust pulses.

Fantastic Chuck. That's a show piece.  :ThumbsUp:
I've certainly enjoyed following along.

"Only two days to make those fiddley little parts"...right...for me probably a week or month or two.

You outdid yourself Chuck. What a great build and result. This one will be hard to top...though I have no doubts you will.
