Hi Guys

I'd like to thank you all for your real nice comments.   :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: :clap:

As I said it was a real enjoyable project, in fact its knocked my plan to get on with my loco build of target a bit, it was the redesign work with the loco lubricator and water pump that prompted me to make the three cylinder, it reminded me how much I enjoy design and development work. So I've got a bit of shop maintenance work to do and a bit of tooling to make, and I want to finish off a part finished elbow engine to raise a bit of shop cash, then I'm seriously considering doing another small engine build, I've seen a small Grasshopper Engine at the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry that's just crying out to be modeled.

I've attached a pdf file thats got all four drawing sheets on one file.

Thanks again

Stew

Won't be long before you need to buy/build a new display case for all your engines.  :)

Well done Stew, that runs fantastically and sounds brilliant! These little engines are so satisfying to build and watch and there are enough designs for a lifetime!

Thanks Nick

I emailed Manchester Museum of Science and Industry yesterday on the off chance that they had drawing or info on the Grasshopper, got an email back today to say that they havn't but have have cleared it with the curator for me to go over and to measure it up.

 :ddb: :ddb: :ddb: :ddb: :ddb:

All I've got to do now is to convince my boss thats she wants a days shopping in Manchester, and by the way I'll keep myself buzzy in the science museum.
 
:) :) :) :)

Have fun

Stew

Stew,

Sounds interesting, it would be nice to build something from scratch like that. I've got the railway museum in Shildon a couple of miles from me and often think of doing that. Wouldn't know how to go about it though!
