    I found that designing and building valve gear is very hard:confused:. I am up to try #3 for my CNJ 4-8-0 . :-xI ran out of rivets and had to order more from Trains and Lanes :mrgreen:(my local hobby shop).I was trying to find formulas for the dimensions of the various rods when I came upon this web page :thumb:witch has a cool demo on it.

    :oops: If you have any experience with making valve gear any suggestions would be handy. :)thanks...
