This is not easy 5 to choose from .
1 excluded quickly
After some deliberation excluded another one
That leaves 3  ! Now I am stuffed .
I thinks I will  have to sleep on it for a while.

As for the upside down beam ??? It is not mine obviously but it looks  like something I would do with the plans wrong way up .
The consequences of living down under .

It was a tough choice, but I went for the inverted beam. I was lucky enough to have dinner with the builder at NAMES last year and by the sounds of it, he sells off most of his engines after building them... that would be a very hard thing to do looking at the quality of his work!

I'll have to think about this myself, though that "down under" beam engine is intriguing.
