ANTIQUE HORIZONTAL STATIONARY STEAM ENGINE MODEL. This integrated antique stationary steam engine is believed to have been scratch built by an experienced machinist.
It likely dates to the first half of the 20th Century. As a set of rough castings and blue prints for amateurs to build at home. The single piston cylinder with large wheel is mounted on a hardwood stage.DIMENSIONS: Height 7" Width 6" Length 14" Flywheels 6 and 3"' Weight 20 lbs. Presented is an almost 14 inch long table top stationary steam engine assembly with a large 4 spoke. 6 and 3 inch diameter flywheels and brass 4 and 1&1/2 piston. You can even see where it was brazed together. The single piston cylinder with large wheel is mounted on an iron stage. I wasn't sure if it is worth more in its patinaed, as-found condition or cleaned up and polished. Its new owner can decide! The brass ought to polish up nicely.
Also you can build your own new stage if the patinaed look isn't your thing. This steam engine would be a great edition to any man cave, garage, study or workshop. Miniature models like this were made by manufacturers of steam engines and plants for for advertising purposes and as a record of their sales. They also were sought after by hobbyists who were interested in in this form of power generating, a hobby which is still flourishing today. However, this is an old model and is more for display purposes but could be made to run if you are knowledgeable about steam engines.
CONDITION: Appears to be in very good condition, but has not been tested. The drive wheels turn and the piston rod moves in and out. Please feel free to contact me with any questions. The item "ANTIQUE HORIZONTAL STATIONARY STEAM ENGINE MODEL" is in sale since Wednesday, March 15, 2017.
