Well I think I can say that Lecky is now finished, all seems to run very smoothly with a good run on when the power is turned off and will happily tick over at a nice slow speed or go like the clappers.

You will see at the end that I have brought this 110 year old design upto date.wink

That really is very nice indeed Jason, you have made a lovely job of it, I,m still amazed at how fast it runs. When its ticking over I could listen to it for ages, its a bit like an old clock ticking away in the background, something very soothing about it.

Congratulations Jason.

The motor’s speeds are impressive, and so is yours in bringing the undertaking to completion so quickly.

How clever too, the reversing mechanism.

This will make a good first project for those not greatly into steam power.

Not yet, anyway.

Regards,

Sam smile d

Back to winter temperatures and rainfall in Melbourne.

If you spin it backwards, will it charge your phone?

Could you run it from a solar cell in a solar engine kind of arrangement?

I would have thought so. I have got a solar trickle charger so will give it a try if the sun stays out.
