Building a Portable Steam Engine - a Guide for Model Engineers

This product is currently sold out.

The author gives detail instructions and drawings for a 2’ scale model of a Lampitt Portable Engine of around 1860.

The simplicity of this prototype makes it an ideal project for the beginner, not least because no castings are required, so errors are not too costly.

142 colour photographs illustrate set-ups for making or machining the various parts, along with the appropriate drawings.

Also included are details of the hand tools required in the workshop for this model. 112 pages. Hardbound.
