    It was suggested I post here, so here it is.

    That was the subject for our club meeting at Home

    Stipulated that 80% must be turned. 45cm long, 23cm wide & 30cm tall.
    Mainly Pine, plus Jarrah, Camphor Laurel, & Miniritchie,
    C&C welcome

    Love it! Nicely turned, too.


    I wonder how difficult it'd be to get the fly-wheel to be a 'friction fit' against the near-by drive wheel? And the fire-stack could be made into a "steering knob" for the front roller...

    Hmmm...
    I may be weird, but I'm saving up to become eccentric.

    Could always turn a couple of pulleys and join them with an elastic band
