Nice job. Seems to run very sweetly. I may have missed it, but is the flywheel a casting, and if so what from?

Thank you people for your kind remarks :cheers:        Charles..the flywheel is the only casting used and came from RDG.
Kim, I gave up on the video, it's appearance is due to other(s)   Jason being the prime suspect :thinking:    Thanks to all.        Terry

Yes 'twas me who put the video up.

I don't think RDG have any more of those flywheels left, certainly have not had them at the last few shows they have attended or on their website. It is the same as the Clarkson beam engine which may now be possible to buy from Blackgates though I expect it to cost a lot more than what RDG were selling them for.

Ta for video Jason.        I have recently received a part casting set for their Steeple engine and the flywheel looks the same as the RDG one.
i say "part" as I'm missing the two uprights....apparently the pattern has been broken :(   I shall await their arrival before starting on that one

Aye, she's a sweet one she is!  :cartwheel:

Of course that's just what we would expect of some one who builds road engines too big to get out of the shop. Well, almost.....

You're a constant source of inspiration for me, Terry.

Keep the dirty side down. :cheers:
