Let's see and discuss your Elmer's Engines
« on: February 02, 2019, 05:00:29 PM »
The digital copy of Elmer's Engines has been getting good press and lots of folks have built them.  I thought it would be interesting to learn about "who has built what".

I've built two: The #25 Wobbler and the #43 Horizontal Mill Engine.

#25 Wobbler



#43 Horizontal Mill Engine

Thanks Guys. That's some nice engines there.

I wonder if identifying them by number would help folks look them up in the book or on the website?
