Elmers Tiny
« on: October 05, 2009, 03:24:41 PM »
Just to let u all know I finally made a runner. And broke the crankshaft and fixed it again.

The first one was 2 part fixed with superglue???  My four year old loved the engine so much it did not last an hour.  I then made the replacement by turning it out of as solid piece in the four jaw chuck--seems fine so far.



FLywheel is 16mm diam and 4.5 wide.(forgot to put somthing for scale.)

Nice 1 Gerhard well done on making a runner! :bow: :beer:

Like the oversized base ... it's certainly different!

Good little engine. Sounds like your 4 year old has got him a new toy. Now you are going to have to build another one for yourself. :lol: :lol:


Cheers  :beer:

Good one Gerhard  :clap: :clap:

Your young son will treasure that engine, I've still got the steam engine my father gave me a long long time ago.

Have fun

THanks for the nice comments.

Nick plan with the oversize base was to have a controll valve in the middle of the pipe.  Dont think Sean would let me have it back to make the valve.

Don I hope to make one of my own design later but a lot of tools on top of the list.
