machines which I have made, am making, or intend to make, and some other stuff. If you find this site interesting, please leave a comment. I read every comment and respond to most. n.b. There is a list of my first 800 posts in my post of 17 June 2021, titled "800 Posts"
TRACTION ENGINE (update)
Finally found someone with enough speed to upload a video. Stuart filming.
Shot near Geelong. Tom driving. SWMBO and me on the kids’ cart. Ange supervising. The safety valves blowing off some steam. Not much smoke from the Welsh steaming coal.
John, that’s a beautiful ride. It’s hard to stay on a traight line with the machine.
I have improved the steering since then, by crossing the steering chains and tightening them. Still not rack and pinion!
Nice ride John. A lot of power in the engine.
