Chronometric tachometer  ( at design stage atm) - a nice clicky clunky design that hopefully anyone can build .

3d indicator revisited   - I have acunning plan (but it probably won't work)

Better valving and tolerances for the Tower Spherical 3d printed engine.

New workshop roof and heating  (do I make space for a cnc lathe of not?)

Ok I might as well throw my two bits worth in. I have had an ongoing project of building a surround for the bench on my Tormach. In hopes of confining the flying bits. My dad left behind 8 or so 4x8 sheets of plexiglass. You could call it shop improvement.
Last winter I started a project which was good to work on when the snow was flying and it was not practical to do anything outside. In restarting this CAD project this winter I've come to the realization that despite having a lot of the large parts in CAD I am missing almost half. That would be Ron Collona's 270 Offy. I must admit that talking with people at NAMES and Zanesville who have built one leaves me considering a remodel, or at the least a revision. Making chips this year would be great.

Too much  ::)

Need to get back on the Corliss of course but there's a new diesel in the air too  ;) along with finishing the JLE engine. Of course that doesn't take account of the garden and a gradually 'creeping into the conversation' of that dreaded unmentionable word - decorating :o

Daren't think of the rest :Lol:

Get and fit DRO for SX3 mill.
Buy/make required tooling for above mill.
Make a start on my first I.C. engine, after trawling through the forum I have bought the Little Demon V8 drawings.
