Stuart Twin Launch engine thread.
« on: June 23, 2021, 11:35:21 AM »
Before I knew of this site, I started a thread on another site for my Stuart Twin Launch build. I did not do a full build thread, but did post several things I did differently to make machining either easier, better, or otherwise improved. A different way to hold and machine the eccentrics, and crankshaft, and flywheel shaft retention were the biggest changes. I also designed a nice air supply manifold with valve incorporated. The engine runs great on compressed air, can get it down to a very slow tick-over. Video of engine running is in the thread.
The thread is here: https://www.homemodelenginemachinist.com/threads/another-stuart-twin-launch-build-started.31962/

Hi TNDave,
Looks like a really nice little twin and it runs well!

If you could take a minute and post a quick intro in the "Introduce Yourself" section, that would be great.  That way everyone can get to know you (those of us who don't know you from other sites) and give you a proper welcome.

Thanks!
Kim
