The Mini-Mite

 

This is my smallest engine yet.  It is entirely brass except for the flywheel axle and head pivot. It was a real problem taking photos.  Having been machine polished, the reflections were killing me.  The appearance of speckles seems to be some sort of reflection.  These are the acceptable ones out of about three dozen.  The last one is shown with a quarter to indicate the little engine's size.   The valve holes were something of a problem at this size, but it runs really nice.  It managed to clock in at 2400 RPM on 15 PSI of air.
