  1. I'm not sure if you have a stack of video you are uploading, or if you are working at this pace, but either way it's awesome to see more progress on these builds so frequently! Thank you for sharing

  2. The way I see it, it is your project and whatever method you decide to use is yours.
    If anyone thinks that it won't work right or that they have a better way of doing it then they should just build their own engine
    their way instead of criticizing you for the way you are doing it.
    A lot of fun to watch on a Sunday afternoon. Thank you again.

  3. Smoothly done fix on the bearings, especially the oil groove. In regards to "incontinent", I've never been certain, is the UK of England-Scotland-Wales in continent or an island? For that matter is Britain Great or just Really Good? Excuse my ignorance, I'm just an American who is so simple that I live in California and pay the outrageous property taxes.

  4. Good job .You have to use what you have at hand or can afford .In a ideal world we would have every tool known to man .like that new yankee work shop guy in the states norm abrahm . Man he must be a millionaire with all the gear he has lol.

  5. You were lucky that your 11/64ths drill was 11/64ths. Most of my drills seem to be a little bit less than they are supposed to be. I often make my own reamers using drill rod. They don't really work very well, but they keep me off the streets.
