Steam and Stirling - engines you can build


Taken from “Live Steam” magazine, this book contains drawings and building instructions for 9 steam engines, 2 hot air engines, a steam turbine and a miniature boiler works, plus ancillary articles. Only one model (a “Rider-Ericsson” Hot Air Pumping Engine) requires castings - and these are now available from The Engineers Emporium/L.A. Services Ltd. 160 very well produced pages. Loads of drawings and photos. Hardbound.

James Symons from Denmark bought this book from us at the beginning of May, and sent us these photographs at the end of June, showing the 4 cylinder 'V' oscillating steam engine and steam plant he had made from designs in the book. Fast work, and looks very nice indeed!
