Yes the video link now works fine Geoff.... The level of low speed control is extremely impressive!

That's how we all dream ours should go (but somehow they don't)   ;)

Lovely example Geoff. Well done

...it does look like the 'real thing' doesn't it, all that's missing is the bells...

Thank you all for your kind words. The secret, long stroke to bore ratio in this case double. :sunglasses You will notice in the previous video the revs where much higher, but a lot of steam was escaping, although I had lapped the faces well.  :thinking Having lapped the faces when on the pivot the ends with more movement than the center ground down leaving the face hard around the pivot. :darn so I milled around the pivot now no steam escapes put no high revs. Going in the boat as soon as I can find the time. :vacation Geoff

This is the latest experiment with the smoke, plenty and darker than it looks on screen.    But a bit volatile. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r75f1EVTL6A
