A couple of engines
« on: May 02, 2009, 09:37:09 PM »
My camera is being fixed now due to some rough handling  :doh:  but I have some earlier pics:

A Stuart beam engine



and an early attempt at video

I rather like slow running engines.

Nice work on both engines,  I like the show running engines myself.  It is kinda relaxing to sit and watch one just slowly stroking along.

Lovely job! Both of `em......  :clap:

The beam is mesmerising with it`s steady beat.

I love slow & quiet, able to "watch the wheels go round"  :thumbup:

Wonderful engines Dave.

We had Stew's big beamer running when he brought it around last week. They are really wonderful to watch.

I do have a couple of nice beamer plans if anyone is interested. But they are in metric, but very well detailed. My flywheel post was about making a flywheel for one of them.

Love the engines! Beam engines are one of my favorite styles (next to radials!). Love the video.

Dave,

Those vids don't look like an attempt to me. They are nice. Very smooth running engines.
