Matt Parker's "Bill"
« on: March 16, 2018, 07:51:15 AM »
Here's an e-mail I received from Mr. Parker on Mar 15, 2018


Hi Allen,

My name is Matt Parker. I built one of your father’s PowerHouse engines and exchanged emails with you during that build. I believe you even have a link to my video of it running on the forum.  Anyway, I just thought I’d share a couple of “in the process” build pics from my current engine. It is the 1906 Bill Engine.  I pretty well have the engine itself finished (aside from minor detail work) and have started the radiator build.  Another fun and challenging build.  I should add expensive too.  That dog gone brass has gotten expensive.  Hopefully I will be sending pics and/or a video of the completed engine in the near future.  I just hope I did the engine justice.

Looks great Matt!  Thank you for sharing.  You never know how many other builders are inspired!
