Something I have thought about, very briefly, I might add. Way too technical for me.
Can’t wait to see what happens.
Hope it all continues.

Interesting idea. But what’s the BHP and the torque? and more importantly, how will it hold up to high revs?

Cool way to pass some time.

When you finish that you could always knock up a coffee table like this one I made. Unfortunately there’s a lot less wood involved. None….
