That was his first post. I hope he introduces himself and show us more.

Very nice Guy and a well finished and nice running model. As Zee noted, please post an introduction in the "Introduce Yourself" section when you can.

Thank you for the nice comments about my engine.
Unfortunately I have taken very irregular photos of the construction so here are some that I still found.
It's not worth opening an extra thread for that.

It's perhaps a small thing, but looks so pretty - that decorative star you made - did you use the mill to basically scribe each line on the plate? Obviously then using the rotary table to turn the plate for the next line. It's superb, and really adds some nice flare.

I didn't come up with the idea.
Stewart Hart showed it in his thread of the Popcorn Engine in another forum.

On the photos above you can see the construction and the milling cutter.
