Oscillator By Roy Ozauf

Since I did a little more fine tuning and got it to run a lot smoother, I thought that I would post it here.
This is the book where I found the plans and there are a couple of shots of the slide valve.

Very well done! With it running slower you can see the in/out movement on the valve shaft from that arc plate, quite an interesting mechanism! :ThumbsUp: :ThumbsUp:

Unfortunately my photo and computer skills are no where near my newly acquired machining hobby skills, but I do the best that I can.
but it is another model that will take its place on the shelves in the family room and then be sold at the garage sale when i die.

That's a great design.  Makes it really easy to see how the oscillating cylinder and the curved slide work together to cause the slide valve motion. 

I suspect it will now not be such a big step to see it on the design with the eccentric as well.

Running beautifully.

Wow ,Interesting mechanism ...could you attach a governor to the curved slide somehow ?? an interesting bit of R&D, I have not seen this mechanism before !!  will we see the other two shortly ??
