    After doing drawings for the single cylinder Maudslay, it was inevitable that a twin cylinder version would be next. By the time the drawings were finished for the single, I had already had the initial drawings of the twin complete & Chuck had a chance to have a look at them.

    For those unfamiliar with this engine, it was designed & built by Mr. Chuck Fellows & based on Henry Maudslays oscillating marine steam engine. Most of the parts are identical to the single cylinders design with obvious additions. The baseplate is going to be tricky, it's a manifold type of porting & will require some extended length drills, but certainly possible. Study the drawings carefully & you will see how I went about it. Not a beginners engine...

    George Britnell built a .7 scale model of the single cylinder engine, added some braces to stiffen up the uprights & added a beautiful little govenor to it. After seeing Georges Engine, I knew I just had to incorporate those items into this design. After contacting George, he was more than happy to contribute his knowledge & CAD files to this design. Thanks very much George!!!

    Files can be found here as one PDF file containing 29 drawings: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1MSFyoTusl74EFb1NiVjuLM2SNZXIBzbr/view?usp=sharing

    Hope you all enjoy these,

    John
