The connection on top the tank looks like a blob of bubble gum. The
end end of the flywheel has chatter marks. The tank is tack welded to
the mounting brackets. I gave it a 3. You asked.

3-4. Keep at it though. By the time you're
as old as these guys, you'll be as good as
them:

These guys are hard to please. That, I think, is the mark of a true
craftsman, but don't let them discourage you. This looks to be an
interesting project for a beginner. Please tell us about how you chose the
project, what problems you had in completing the project, and how you solved
them.

Judging from his hands, he's about 12 .. 16 years old. In most cases a
beginner.

The ends of the boiler are welded much better than the pressure tap.
Boilers are dangerous, you might want to cut it out and try again with a
larger insert. Try mastering gas welding or cranking up the amps on your
mig.
Could probably use a counterbalance.
It's not fancy, but nice work for a beginner.

I would have to know how old you were. If your a kid its one thing
but older I'd be much more critical. I build large tanks for example
and the welds , which are not well lit, are to0 large in porportion
and also the screws for example. If your a kid its pretty good. If an
old fart like me then try another.
