Nice work, looks great.

Is it simply a long bore with the fuse/ignition hole drilled down into it?

EDIT: ps is that Brassy Babe wobbler engine in your profile pic?

craynerd,

Dead right
The bore is 4.5mm dia x 28mm long (to take a .177 bb ball) the fuse hole is 1.6mm dia.

Thats not my wife in my profile pic - it an ocsillating engine :lol: :lol: :lol:

I haven't forgotten, as soon as I can get everything together, I (or my mate) will fire it. Hopefully a few times.

I'll post a few photos, and if I can get someone to video it, a short video.

The problem is trying to get everyone together at the same time. :poke:
