Nice 1 bramley51, it should have quite a bit of power being twin cyl double acting. I've never made a double acting or double cylinder oscillator yet but can imagine they are pretty smooth.

Nice engine. Has a different kind of a look to it which makes it nice. Be nice to see the whole setup when you get it install and steaming.  :ddb: :ddb:

Cheers  :beer:

Hi Bramley

Nice engine the finish is just fine  :clap: I like things that work for a living. I will be building a boiler some time so I would be interested to see your boiler build.

Cheers

Bramley,

Having built a couple of these myself, and I can assure you, your build is just fine.

They are a real nice engine, smooth running, good speed control, and plenty powerful enough for a model up to about 36" to 40" (not with too much displacement though).

I have a V4 version in my shop built by someone else, that I use to show people how NOT to build a steam engine.

Peter Arnot's boilers also work rather well, so don't have any worries on that score.

Very nice build.
