EZ Build Engine Kit

My fried Josh managed to find himself owning two lathes. After helping him resolve that problem I found myself an owner of a Jet 9×20 lathe. Not having used a lathe in about 10 years I decided to start by working on a skills building project. 


After some looking around, I found the EZ Build Engine plans from the folks over at Home Model Engine Machinist board. They basically build a small compressed air engine. Building mine was quite a saga. I managed to get some whiplash with kept me out of the shop for several months. After 4 months of very short increments of work I had a functioning engine and mostly better neck.
