What a sweet little engine!


Anyone ever make a twin version?

Really nice job George! Great work on that tiny reversing valve.

 Just a great build throughout!

Here's a short video of the engine with the finished governor. With the tiny size there's just not enough weight to effectively open and close the balls. They do fly out at higher rpm's but there's not enough weight to return them to the rest position. It looks neat though.
Talent unshared is talent wasted.

Not worth switching to depleted uranium for the wieghts, leave them as is.

The Wikipedia article on Maudslay is worth a look.  He's credited with making the first screw cutting lathe, although Vaucanson made the first all metal lathe a good deal earlier.

Reminds me of some of the old TV series like Connections and Industrial Revelations that went through a lot of the early manufacturing inventions and how they built on one another - fascinating stuff.
