Where does time go?

I can't believe that Feburary is almost over.  Due to my day job, I haven't had much free time to work on the new N2O-propane motor.  However, today I finally finished mounting it on the test stand.  I intend to test ignition and thrust levels using very short duration tests.  After I've gotten that worked out, I will go through the trouble of adding the regenerative cooling to the chamber.

316 Stainless. It was made on a CNC lathe but not by me.
