I was just informed my second patent which captures all the lessons learned and improvements since the first patent was finally granted after a year of uncertainty. I've posted an animation and brief description of the engine on YouTube at https://youtu.be/x-w7KM_LuvM . The patent office suspended examination because my patent attorney forgot to pay filing fees. It was unclear for many months whether the patent could be resuscitated, and my morale and motivation to work on the prototype was destroyed as a result. Add in the continued assault on internal combustion by those with misplaced faith in electric as the only solution, and I'm really struggling to reengage. The excitement is gone and I'm not sure it will return.
