Flame Eater - Philip Duclos little blazer
« on: January 24, 2009, 11:03:45 PM »
This is my second completed project. The plans are in "Two Machine Shop Masters" published by Village Press

The main structure was machined from a block of mild steel (1018 cold rolled)

The cylinder is aluminum with a brass liner.

Oh! That`s nice.....  :thumbup:

I`m still struggling to get my Hielscher vacu-mini performing to order......  ::)

Sure that isn't a mini Harley engine. They sound about the same trying to get them started.  :lol:

Nice job for being only your second engine. From the looks of that first pic of the frame that you made from the steel I'd have to say you've got natrual talent.  :thumbup: Something hard to come by in todays world.
