Another enjoyable update to your Stuart beam engine build Gary.

Where did you source the little brass/glass drip oiler?

Thanks Jim
The oilers are from a Ebay shop (RDGTools) based in the UK, his omline Ebay name is (rdg355) not cheap but very good quality.

Hi Folks
"It's Alive"
Test run on air to carry out adjustments, I will connect to steam soon, then post up a longer video.
It it is still very tight, especially the piston rings.

This has been a wonderful and informative build thread, and now brought to a fine and successful conclusion. Looking forward to the steam tests, but I have no concerns at all, as it has obviously been well built!
