Some people never have anything except ideas. Go do it.
Emissions & fuel economy haven't exactly been areas of strength for past rotary power plants, but absolutely no one with a soul has ever cared.

Love their channel. Their build quality is top notch. I've picked up a few useful fabrication tips from watching this build.

The best part was my wife rolling her eyes as I was squealing with delight '' project binky project binky!!!!!!''

Love the powered bead roller, may have to try that with mine, just wonder how long the battery would last.

I had to watch it twice, once when it was first put up around noon on Friday and again when the GF came over. For some reason she enjoys it too. She thought the wheel lathe was a bit, um, scary. As for me, the little bit about the gas tank fixings has made me re-think my "yet to be constructed" gas tank fixings for the Europa. It looks like fabricating two sets of straps will be in my future.

Likewise, it's made me look long and hard at the welded on tabs on my (admittedly much smaller) ali tanks. I did buy materials to make strap clamps originally and then abandoned that in favour of tabs. Might need a revisit. For reference, I bought some large version of these "strap clamps" because it already includes all of the nice hardware - you just unroll and straighten out the strap.

My wife also rolls her eyes whenever I say "Oooh, new project Binky!!!!" :oops:

I have no idea why I haven't watched this before, but they've got my attention now. I don't think I'll be getting much sleep the next couple nights.

I just love the Project Binky series! They remind me of Team Slotus, only with actual skills... and cool British accents!
I think we'd have Liam Neeson play Jeb Stuart in our series, though... :mrgreen:

:cheers:
