M31 - Stuart 10H steam engine
|Year of construction||2005|
|Energy source||compressed air|
A kit where the cylinder and the engine base had already been machined served as the basis for this steam engine project. I machined the missing parts in accordance with the original drawings, changing all threads and bolts to metric. Since the originial flywheel was missing, I decided to obtain a finished one from Wolfgang Bengs, who makes these flywheels on a CNC machine and by now has expanded his shop, also offering high quality accessory parts for steam engines. I nickel plated some of the shiny surfaces of this model.
