Good to see the beautiful work progressing. 

Is that a SS boiler in progress as well?

Interesting angle of engagement for the grub screw Pavel........

1. is the main shaft a replacement?
2. will you make a flat or dimple the shaft to allow the grub screw to engage at such an angle?
3. the cylinder appears to be 50 mm........or is it 2"?
4. not usual to see Continental/European grub screws with a screwdriver flat......so is the original English?

Hi Derek,

the screw will touch on the shaft, where there will be a small area, the original steam engine is only a bronze cast of the cylinder, everything else I do from my drawings
