It looks a lot more like a piece of Victorian Art, than an engine - impressive  :praise2:

Very neatly done, Dave!
You have a lot of cool toys to play with - both in your home shop AND at work :)

Bear, Gary, Per, & Kim, thanks for the nice comments and taking time to stop by to check out my progress.
Only one assembly left to make, the displacer piston, then maybe with some luck it will run.

Hi Dave,

Your CNC Lathe turns out those ball ends much faster than I can  ::)

That is a very long (flexible ?) displacer rod  :o
