Default Another Flame Licker Plan

I've seen pictures of this Flame Licker design a few places and I've been
searching for the plans.

It seems a young man re-drew the plan as a high school drafting project.
He posted his work on his web site at:

Another one on the things to build list.......

That one is the one by Phillip Duclos and documented in "Steam and Stirling Engines You Can Build, Vol 1"

Welcome Shred, and thanks!

I'm a machinist, I always look at the pictures. :wink:
Volume 1 does look like an interesting book too!

That engine is also in "The Shop Wisdom of Philip Duclos" published by Vallage Press. A book I can highly recomend.

This engine is also featured as a three part article in Live Steam Magazine, Oct-Nov-Dec 1990.

I keep looking at these plans....
That damn cam keeps putting me off.
If it ever hits the work bench the cam will be the first part made.
(Just in case I can't!. LOL) Every plan I've come up with for cutting the
the groove in the side of the cam brings visions of exposed thumb bones.
I'll keep working on a better plan....

Rick

Rick,

I may not be "seeing" this clearly :? , but looking at the cam, why couldn't one cut the groove and holes in a .250 plate (mounted on a expendible plate), then machine the profile out of the remaining part? This way, there would be plenty of material to clamp, and would also have the ability to move the piece around to get the radiuses cut for the profile using a rotary table. After it is cut, it would be simple to clean up.

I may have this totally wrong, and if so please correct me.
