Produced many steam engines, including some spectacular large overtypes. Falk bought out Schoenner's steam engine line in 1912.After WW1, Falk became closely allied with Bing, producing a few steam engines with the combination JF/BW label. This engine is a hard to find vintage circa 1911. The base is cast iron and measures 4-3/4 square. The tank is 2-1/2 in diameter and 4-1/2 tall. The flywheel has a slight imperfection and measures 3 in diameter. The cylinder has a stroke of 3/8 and has a compound valve rather than a simple oscillating valve. Nice smooth action of the flywheel.
The view glass is missing. When the flywheel rotates is drive a set of simulated centrifugal speed governor. The pressure is adjusted by means of a two position weight. There is a gauge that indicates the tank steam pressure. An adjustable screw controls the amount of steam to the cylinder.The whole mechanism turns freely.
