Hey guys,
Been quite a while since I last came on here, let alone posted a thread. Sorry for being away so long, just been busy with various issues, and masses of college work, girlfriend... stuff like that.

I wasn't too sure where to put this thread to be honest but I think it fits nicely into this section?

Since I came on before, for those of you who may remember me I started doing my apprenticeship in mechanical engineering, working at the University of Bradford.
I have successfully completed my level 2 diploma and NVQ, and currently starting my final year in September for my level 3.
Being in this sort of job, I have become quite confident and developed many skills using different machinery. Both manual and CNC.

Anyways, the point of the thread was to show you a project that I have been working on for almost a year now, amongst other things, which is a little model two stroke engine with opposed pistons.
The engine was designed and built by a dutch man called Jan Ridders... Some of you may be familiar with his work???
Heres a link to his website, the engine that im building:

http://ridders.nu/Webpaginas/pagina_...d_frameset.htm

Anyways there's a few pictures of my progress so far, thought you may be interested in this. I shall keep you updated with my progress and a video shall be posted once its finished and running. I estimate around Christmas time!
Any feed back is welcomed.
Eddie.
