This is a vintage, Horizontal Jenson 75 live steam engine, with box and lever reverse. The box is in good shape for its age.This engine is in great operational condition. I tested this engine and it ran great in forward and reverse. The original whistle, original governor and original safety valve all work fine. I also cleaned and resealed the site glass and rinsed out the boiler as well.
It has a Jensen burner tray with it. Reverse and throttle control valves both work fine. It has the original smoke stack too.It has a large drive pulley. I put a new drive band on the governor too. This is a nice looking engine and appears to have had little use.
I got this engine from the original owner and it still has the sales receipt from 1969. It still has the original instructions too.With the documentation this is one for the collector. It is mounted on a hand crafted Florida Cyprus plague. I mounted it with stainless steel screws. Please view all the pictures. What you see is what you get. In order to expedite your order I go to the post office as soon as it opens. Since they are pre-packed, I cannot combine engines. I can combine small accessories. The post office has lost or destroyed three of my items causing me considerable loss. This comes across as a scam to me. I retired a few years ago and have always enjoyed working in my shop. I have been intrigued with steam engines since I was very young. One of the things on my bucket list was to learn how to operate a metal lathe and a mill. When I retired these two things came together for me and I have been refurbishing toy steam engines ever since. From the time I started till now, I have refurbished over seven hundred engines. I test every engine before I sell it. If it does not run right it stays on the work bench until it does. I get great pleasure in bringing these guys back to life and knowing that folks are getting a good running steamer.
I was a carpenter for many years, so I make the Cypress plaques as well. I hand rub each plaque with Minwax so it will repel water. Sometimes I do well sometimes not.
Enjoy your stream engine, Ric Dickens. Machine- 11L X 10W X 9H.
