Kessler Hot Air Engine

 
 
Mid 07, Marv Hedburg emailed me a 'plan' of the Kessler. I had some Alloy wheels on hand so I made two half size models. The crankshafts were 'interesting' ! (Read that as a pain in the butt) The first attempt was too weak and flexed. Making a heavier version caused changes right through the entire working parts. However, they run well and are a 'different to the usual' hot air model. One has gone to Marv as part of a deal on a set of castings and the other now lives in Melbourne.
