This is a vintage, Modified/refurbished Weeden 14 horizontal steam engine. It is in very nice collectable condition. I test fired it and it ran great, both in forward and reverse.
The original whistle and original safety valve both work well. This one also comes with a good alcohol burner. It looks unused, so I left it in those conditions rather that test it.
I put new seals in the site glass and a new site glass. I also put a new drive band on the governor and made a new throttle screw for it. I included a 250ml incremented fill bottle and a bottle of steam cylinder oil. Please view all the pictures. What you see is what you get.
It was made in United Sates and they started making this model around 1930. 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. 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.
