Oh and thats not like any oak I've ever seen

Do a google image search for 'red oak'.

I was given a load of the stuff a while back, and thought it might make good machine display bases. Looks like I was right.

Just Done a search on types of oak and found "Bog Oak" so that's explains it.

That was one of the nicest build I have seen yet.  Poetry in Motion, quoted by David D, doesn't go far enough. I have enjoyed the build from the beginning and words can not say enough. This is what makes this site what it is.

Stew, just been showing your model to Jamie, he thinks it's fantastic, and that was before I'd explained what you'd actually done! Unfortunately we can't watch the videos here though. :thumbup:

Stew - what a lovely lovely engine - the finish of black and polished steel is just so right.

Congratulations - so much to learn from your build.

Best wishes

Stew, thanks for uploading the pictures and drawings.  And thanks for the exhaustive build thread.  Do you have something else on the drawing board?  I always look forward to your posts and projects.

Thanks Peter

Chuck thanks for your interest.

I've one or two things bubbling in my head, (V4, IC and a steam powered rolling mill) but in the mean time I've got few little projects for the grand kids and a little shop maintenance work to do and I want to make some progress on my loco build, its taken a back seat for far too long now. So I think it will late on in the year before I undertake another engine, in the mean time I,ll keep my eyes open, you never know I just may see something that will inspires me before then.

Thanks again

Stew

Thanks Pete

 :update: :update: :update: :update: :update: :update:

Just to bring you guys up to speed.

I posted a few pick on the ME web site, lo and behold I got an email from the editor asking for an article on the engine, so thats what I've been up to the last couple of days, nearly got in finished just need to top and tail it.

Last night was my local model engineering society members night and pie and peas supper, members who had completed engines had them on show and the rest voted for best engine, yep you guessed it:-  the over crank got best engine.

Chuffed to bits
