Based on Jan's steam engine powered plasma ball accessory. Here's a similar setup using the M90 Hit & Miss Engine.

Nicely done Alan, I find my china hit and miss engines run better when very secure mounted. That heavy wood is doing the job really well and looks grand to!
    We don't see enough videos of folks putting there hit and miss engines to work....thanks for sharing!

Enjoyable vid Alan as always, I'm currently bodging my way through a build with the help of Jan (when it comes to electronics my brain fly's out the window!).

Thanks Guys.

I can't recommend that Jarrah wood highly enough, it is so solid and heavy, makes superb bases.

Recommended to me by my friend Rob from the 'xynudu' YouTube Channel.
