Thanks for all the comments. I'll probably start a new thread for any more work on this one as the swarf starts to be produced. Though as I type this I have just thought of something on the engine that the CNC would be the ideal tool for :)

this is a great project !
looking at the variable crank, I seems to me that the piston move faster on the downward stroke to minimize heat transfer before its expansion, a very clever design by Otto...in 1873 !
this is certainly a model to do, simply out of respect for the thoughts that gave rise to this engine !
