Here are a few pix of my completed 2nd engine build.  As the title says, this is Elmer Verberg's #36 Reversing Wobbler at 2x scale done in Imperial measure.  There's a build log of this engine in this forum also.  I'm quite pleased to get thru this and end up with a working engine!  i certainly learned a lot of new techniques that hopefully will help on future builds.  In any case here are the pix and the video of the engine running, both slow, fast and in reverse.

Completed Engine - pix 4


Video of running engine.  Air pressure was about 3 psi at the low end and 20 psi at the high end.


Enjoy!

I'm adding a final pix to this thread.  I've added a walnut base to this engine and an engraved brass nameplate just to dress it all up a bit.

Enjoy!

Fabulous looking engine. Your build log is also interesting.
