Just published a bunch new parts

back in town...
will there be more parts ?

Got your message. It's looking great. Bummer that you could not fit the whole frame in your printer, let me know what the max print size you have, Iay be able modify to make it fit. I may even be able to split it into two parts that fit together like a puzzle.

printed and assembled one on a gray afternoon. ŝcaled to 15% so most things can be screwed together with M3 screws. will there be more parts from you, like arms connecting to the flywheel and a piston ? flywheel seems to be a little waste on support material, could have been stronger....

Looking good so far.
Have you thought about making it and running it on comp. air? I think you could inset brass sheet into the bearing surfaces and turn a bore liner. Okay, so you'd also have to change all of the shafts but it might just be possible.
