Just a few lines. I get the Gas Engine Magazine and I love
it!

The pictures are of a hit and miss engine I built. It is all
made up of cold rolled steel, except the piston and cylinder which
are cast iron. The flywheels are 12′ diameter; piston is 2 inch
diameter.

I fabricated everything except the spark plug, piston rings,
bolts, and timing gears. There is no visible welding to be seen on
it. Crankshaft has needle roller bearings it turns on.

I have to get some pin stripe painting done on it yet. It runs
great. Two turns on the crankshaft and it goes. I built a little
boss saw to go with it which has a six inch saw blade

I have started building a scale of this engine. The flywheels
will be eight inches, piston 1, so I hope it will run as good as
this first one does.
