Steam and Hot Air Engines

As you know, I like to work with metal.

During wintertime since 1998 when I got my lathe several projects got established.

Well, there's some dust to have come apart, but I would like to show you these buildings, always growing up of trash, excapt the nuts.











Would you like some more pix?
I will try to manage the dust.
Or still keeping it.
It's on you.

Your work never ceases to amaze me!

I would love to see it running too.

Oouups! The Rider type doesn't run!
My mistake to design aluminum pistons into steel zylinders: the pistons grow faster than the zylinders do.
But I can take several pix at different crankshaftangels.
So you can put them together to a running movie.

Deal?

Well, the Rider was my first homebrewed engine that doesn't run.
But it's an eyetaker at erveryones office desk!
All others went well.

To take movies about them, it will take some time.
I'll think about it.

But since that I'll prefer Jethro Tull.



Merry Christmas to all of you!

Kurt

Thank you Kurt.

You never need ask if I'd like to see more of what you are tinkering!

It is always a pleasure to see and learn something new from your fabrication skills.

I also appreciate the Jethro Tull. Here is one for you!....




Arlo? ..as in Arlo Guthrie?

THanks for sharing Kurt!
these mechanical things (as simple as they appear) really do fascinate me. It is sort of what built this country (US) - referring to steam engines.


Jay Leno has some cool steam engines in his collection - see if you can find some videos of those.


Impressive that you can make ANYTHING mechanical from scrap/trash even if it doesn't function as you planned.
Great stuff and your posts are always mechanically inspiring - keep them coming

Well, I took my nick from him. (my greatest favorite, the one and only! )

But exchanged the ending "ie" by "y" in some other forums; thaught about trouble about the name.

And I called my first dog Arlo too. He was a very good didgeboo!

But I'm Kurt, married third time but still driving my first Land Rover!

I always had been impressed of what kind of mechanical workmanship collectors got together in the US!
But was not exited about the outdoor locations: even at the Bonanza lokation at Lake Tahoe nor at Body ghost town.

These items should be protected a little bit better for the following starters and for sure in a living shape!

I assumed so ...you can't appreciate Tull without Guthrie being there somewhere...

A friend of mine is on his third marriage and doing well also. Always the optimist, I tell him..."I hope she sticks! Third time is a charm!"

I think you posted a picture of her working on the truck. She was crawling on top of the engine bay with her eyes crossed and sticking her tongue out at you. Too cute! Lol ...She's a keeper!!

are you talking about those HUGE "hit-n-miss" engines?
I think it's tough to find any indoor space to accommodate them.
Here in the northeast, I run across some very old mechanical equipment and engines in the old 1800s mills. Sometimes people restore them and exhibit them during parades, but for the most part, these engines (whether steam, diesel/kerosene or petrol) were all sitting and rusting for many years before restoration, so while it would be preferable to see them in a museum, they are perfectly capable of functioning in an open field (that is part of their beauty and simplicity).

Well, I'm talking about the ruins of the "running west" time!

There are museeums all over the place of modern art but nothing like this about the running developement of the real exploration the west during that time. In my opinion.

You need some more museeums belonging the run !

First and second Bull run creek at Virginia, Wagon Box Fight at Wyoming or Monitor and forgot the name of the other battleship in Mississippi, are a first step to get the remembrance solved. But it's only one step to get them for the next generations.
All these historic events have to become close together under one shelter at each region to show you the way from where you're comming, went ont and might offer you the way you should go to next!

Oh, sorry I'm telling about things you would like to went on your own way.

I just picked up a 1928 John Deere 2 1\4 HP hit and miss. Found it at a local yard/estate sale. The guy asked if I knew what I t was.....and could haul it away for $25.00. The tank is cracked....but over all is free and I am looking fwd to spending some time making it run and figure out something to hook it up to.
Now.....where did i put that jd green paint.....

That is awesome!
I always thought it would be cool to hook one up to an air compressor with a leather belt drive. Fire it up to run the air tools or just to air up a tire. Run it enough that I don't flinch when it hits.

Can't wait to see it go.

A buddy runs a beef farm south of here, and there is an old saw (35" blade) mounted on a "table" that looks like it use to run off a tractor pulley. Might just run over there and see if it can be removed from the tree that is growing around it and put to some use. Like I need another project....
