Another beautiful result Jason. I think that a good test of a stationary steam engine is how well it runs at slow speed and this one certainly is a smooth runner. Well done.

I always follow your builds and usually pick up a tip or two to help me to hopefully match your standard one day. Thanks for your postings

Another excellent build thread and result. I've learned a lot from Jason and the gift keeps coming. I've not cracked the big secret though: how does he work so quickly? I'm still collecting materials for his Flame Licker. My theory is Jason is really Santa Claus and all the work is done by thousands of elves in a giant workshop at the North Pole...

Thanks for the comments.

I must admit I like an engine with a nice slow tick over, quite relaxing to just sit there watching them run. Though the IC engines are enjoyable to make and run they are not so peaceful to watch.

This is the Robinson Oil Engine I mentioned if the FB link did not work, set of castings are almost on their way to me. I did have a hand in some of the pattern making. At least it should smell good running on paraffin with hot tube ignition and eventually a spirit lamp to heat the tube.

Not sure when I'll start it as there are some others in the pipeline and I've now got an inkling to reinvent the James Coombes

That’s a beautiful result. It took me a while to find this thread - I know you mentioned it on mine a couple of times. I’d assumed it would be in “work in progress”.

No doubt I’ll have questions on broaching keyways when the time comes…
