Maudslay Table Engine
« on: March 31, 2019, 06:51:12 PM »
Since the work on my main project, a Boulton and Watt bellcrank engine made with Anthony Mount’s castings, is coming to an end I am starting to think about the next model. For many years I have admired the Maudslay table engine of the early 1800s. A good example of the full scale engine, dated 1840, is in the Science Museum at South Kensington and a set of engraved drawings of an earlier engine is readily available. I attach a photograph of the 1840 engine.

I only know of two models of the engine. The Science Museum has a model of an early engine dated 1815 and a Canadian, L. G. Bateman, made a 1/16 scale model in the 1940s. His model was described in some detail in “The Model Engineer” of 13 March 1947.

I have started drawing a general arrangement of a 1/13 scale model which should keep me busy for some months.

There is no such thing as a stupid question.

Interesting project + I find it funny that the miniature model in the case next to it has been build here by Chuck and George if I'm not mistaken.

I hope that you will enjoy the project / build  :cheers:
