Yer havin' way too much fun, Thomas!  :D

Ditto.

It's getting more and more interesting.


Hello Zee,

I feel the same and getting anxious to get it on four wheels. The Engine Plate has made a big difference in the looks and looking forward to mounting the engine temporarily. It is after 5:pm and I have been in the shop since 1:am this morning and not tired, but hunger has forced me to shut down for the day.

Have a great day,
Thomas

Hello Bent,

Yes I am and cannot get enough. This has turned out to be a really fun break from the steam engines and I love building them. I am most pleased at this point with the progress. :cartwheel:

Have a great day,

Quit................................


I liken it to banging you head on a brick wall................Its time to quit when it starts to hurt.

In our case its a hobby so quitting or continuing is a personal decision and you'll know it was the right thing if you feel better after the decision was made than you did before making it.

It's rather strange this year with, ostensibly, a new organiser for the exhibitors part of the ME day. I sent my application form in over five weeks ago. I've never had a reply, or any sort of acknowledgement, despite a reminder email. Not sure what to do. I'm disinclined to make a 140 mile round trip on the off chance that space has been allocated to me.  :-\

I have just read this thread from start to finish.

Very full and transparent description, and beautifully photographed, resulting in an immaculate engine.

I plan to have a go at this engine once I have a couple of oscillators under my belt. Only one thing, though - I don't share your love of maths so when it comes to the flywheel I'll be using dividing plates   ;)

Zee one could argue that you are not quitting but simply distracted with life. Don Sandler  has a hard and fast rule one project at  a time.

when i first started this hobby I started minkin  . a model that is really too small for a beginner. then IIrc i stared the PMR 2 engine and busted a tap in the head then i finished Lucy in IIRC a week and then Webster alo in a week.  then i went back and finished minikin and then the pmr #2 and i have since finished other engines . these days mostly work house chores and a bit of addictive manufacturing.
I have too many projects started . I probably need to pick one and finish it then another....

I usually quit sometime between 6 and 9 pm, depending on how thirsty I am.

Great looking flywheel, perfect style for that engine.
