I tested it and it ran great, the original safety valve works fine. It also has the original alcohol burner.This engine appears to have had little use. I included an 8 ounce/ 250ml incremented fill bottle and funnel. I also included a bottle of steam cylinder oil. It is mounted on a hand crafted Florida Cyprus plague.
I used existing holes to mount it with stainless steel screws. Please view all the pictures.
What you see is what you get. Since they are pre-packed, I cannot combine engines.
The post office has lost or destroyed three of my items since Christmas, causing me considerable loss. But this cannot be avoided. Bio; 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 several hundred engines. I test every engine before I sell it. 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 also make the Cyprus plaques as well.
Sometimes I do well sometimes not. Enjoy your stream engine, Ric Dickens. Machine- W 5.5 X L 3 X H 5. Plaque- L 7.5 X W 5.25X H 1.
