    A few weeks ago I completed the radial 5 designed by Rudy Koupt. (name is probably spelled wron) I runs good but is out of balance. I machined as much material from the pin side of the web as I could, but it still shakes. Anyone else have the same problem and a good solution?? I scaled it up x 1.25 but I don't think that should make any difference.
    I also built the Kouhoupt radial 5. Mine is to the original scale and runs well without any balance issues.

    I believe I may have discovered at least part of the problem.
    I made the pistons from material from my scrap box. The material was aluminum bronze, which was quite a bit heavier than the standard bronze called out in the drawing.
    It will sit on the display shelf most of the time anyway, but it is fun to show it off.
