Hello Stew, your engine is fascinating to watch and so smooth, I wonder how many were built in full size and whether they were a practical success. What sort of finish have you used? it looks great!

Hi Stew

Only one was ever made for certain it was displayed at the great exhibition in 1852 powering a spinning machine, a second may have bin made but their is no definite evidence of this, they weren't very successful as only one was made, the original had sprung loaded side plates to take up wear.

The finish is just mat black, started off with an acid etch followed by a grey primer then a few coats of the black.

Thanks for you're interest.

Stew

Absolutely marvelous Stew! It is such an interesting design, and quite a rare one indeed. I really admire the finish you put on, so industrial looking and yet elegant all at the same time. BRAVO!! Thm:

I'm going to finish this off



But first I have a bit of shop maintenance to do, :- new inner roof to the shop, plus I need to get some brownie points built up with the Boss

So, what's this about a piece of Phos bronze from John and a water pump then Stew?!!?

And is it the Green Orphan or the above or Brownie points?

Don't tease Stew!!

Hi Ron

No tease:-

I bought the engine last it's about 90% complete, it needs the plumbing doing, a boiler feed pump, an oil pump, cylinder dran coxs, and a buncker tank making, plus a new paint job and a general tidy.

But first a few brownie points ;)

Stew,

The engine really did look good when I saw it the other day, but what's this?

I told no one except Pete, who was the originator of the original material.

BTW, big sloppy please for a copy of the plans for my archive, preferably PDF.
