Hi guys

The plan is to build a twin cylinder steam engine based on the Stewart verticle,

Making my own patterns and sand casting, this will be a slow process as time is limited, I have limited skills but enjoy the challenges including the failures, I have. a amadeal mini lathe, a small milling machine, a small electric kiln ,

I have limited space a 5x4 she'd which my head hits the roof although it is concrete the smallest workshop in Britain .

Well first the lathe motor gave up so I called Hugh at armadeal and received a new one the next day ,so all ready to go.

how do I upload pictures

I've started with the wooden pattern plate to make the two stands

Off to a good start.

I've altered your title slightly to better describe your thread which will make it easier for others to follow.
