Steam Plant
« on: July 14, 2021, 11:44:20 PM »
A small steam plant featuring a x1.5 scale copper boiler based on a design by Stan Bray and a 12mm oscillating engine based on a design by Steve's Workshop. http://www.steves-workshop.co.uk/

Various liberties have been taken with the visual design of these elements.

It also features a steam separator/feedwater preheater, a displacement lubricator, a glass water reservoir a hand pump for the boiler and a small modified Mamod grinder which is driven by the engine.

For the finished plant (including footage of it working) skip to 7.05 on the video:

Thanks Per - very kind of you.
It's quite some time since I finished this build but last night I thought I'd just post my two completed projects in the showcase.
Cheers.
