Well, it IS shiny...

Hopefully MORE shiny when it's done?

Eventually, something along these lines:






Got my own idea I've been kicking around for a while- flathead with an atmospheric intake valve, 1" bore and I'm thinking either 1.25 or 1.5" stroke. Not sure how I'm going to do the governor but I've got a few ideas. No idea how well it will work, if it ever even DOES. I don't have a real great track record at finishing projects...

Nice!

I have a small PM research steam engine which is really cool. I was going to try and couple it to a stepper motor to make a steam powered cellphone charger.

Been working on dumping the ideas swirling around in my head out onto paper and the computer.

Heres the general idea.









Currently thinking flathead, with atmospheric intake valve. Main design constraints are the limiting factors of the tools I have, so the goal is to make it as simple as possible and entirely built on the tools I have access to- a Smith 1250xl (?) lathe / mill combo. Been playing around a bit and have made some shavings, will get more pics posted.
