New oldy
« on: January 10, 2018, 11:16:42 PM »
I just received an old steam engine model I'd bought off ebay. It's brass & steel & looks to have been made around 1900. It needs some work & one of the valve eccentrics is missing. But I got it at a pretty good price & I think I can restore it ok. It is my first actual steam engine soooooooo? I'll take some pics one of these days LOL
You never know what you can do, till you try. Don't be afraid to try & fail. We learn more from our failures than our successes.
