This is a vintage, Weeden 14 horizontal steam engine. (Refurbished) It is in good operational condition. I test fired it and it ran great. This one runs in both forward and reverse.
The shop made safety valve works fine. This one also comes with an original alcohol type burner. I put new seals in the site glass and a new site glass.
It has a shop made governor base and a remanufactured governor. I added a new drive belt for the governor. I also has the original whistle. It has the original throttle valve too, which works fine.I put new boiler bands and a new steam line on this engine. Please view all the pictures. What you see is what you get. To get you started, I tossed in a bottle of steam cylinder oil and an eight ounce /250ml incremented fill bottle. It was made in United Sates and they started making this model around 1920 possibly earlier, (I think).
They were making this style from the late. 1800's up to 1940. 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. The post office has lost or destroyed three of my items since February 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 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.
