Amazing Ron. It looks brand new.

Have you run it yet?

Any chance of a video?

I do love Carette machines. I would love to see it run, perhaps with some load...I'm curious as to what these will power.

I would like to Thank Every One for their interest in my Hot Air Engine.
I don't want to mislead anyone the Toy has been repainted and
looks like a professional repaint, shows no mechanical wear. I fell
in love with it !! As of yet have not to run it, Its just 2 nice.

It looks great Ron. 

I hope you decide to run it. 

These are really excellent runners and I don't think it will degrade the restoration in any way.
