A Gismo ??? If it has a flywheel or spins and is made with small parts. I'll take one! If it makes noise, moves, or requires frequent oiling and dusting it's a better deal yet. It's especially right if its shiny and bright; but if it's dirty and dull it wont mater at all...

Hey, Tel, is that you in the new avatar?

When was that taken?  When you were an extra in the filming of "Breaker Morant", perhaps?

It's a freelance, based on Mogens Kilde's engine, but scaled up 1.5x and with a lot of modifications to bring it more into line with full size practice

A bit of an update


And the most recent bit - the offset bell crank for the valve gear

That's a nice looking build Tel. I like the fluting and relief on the parts. Little things like that set an engine off.
