This is the 2nd engine I have built. Hopefully the video is a little better quality. I made or cast all the pieces except the brass rod, crank bushings, copper tube & fittings, and the bolts. It is a double acting piston valve engine. The valve was the most difficult part to figure out. I wanted to make a vertical steam engine, but not buy a kit since I am trying to learn metal casting and how to use a mill and lathe. This is the result - a combination of several designs I have seen others make. Thanks for viewing!
