Hi

Just thought I'd post the link to my book "Making Model Victorian Stationary Engines" the forum will know these engines under to pottyengineering title, lots of these engines have been made by forum members the book has all the drawings and a step by step guide on how to make them.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Making-Model-Victorian-Stationary-Engines/dp/0719841208/ref=sr_1_1?crid=3U0CQP50EJ3XV&keywords=making+model+victorian+stationary+engines&qid=1704289943&sprefix=%2Caps%2C95&sr=8-1

Enjoy
Stew

Thanks for your interest in my book guys, if you do get one please give it a 5 star rating  ;D 

Its been quite a while since I posted had a few health issues (big C) all clear now hopefully, producing the book kept me busy. I'll try and post a few projects in the future.

Happy new Year to you all

Note a minor error in the vertical cross single drawings. Page 104 shows the bearing bore to be 8mm but the crankshaft on Page 105 is 6mm diameter.

Thanks Ken I've marked my copy up so that it can be corrected if we have a second addition

Looks like I misinterpreted the drawings. There is a diameter reduction on the shaft to fit the web, but the shaft itself is assumed to be the diameter of the bearing (8mm).

Just checked my master drawings and the mistake is mine not the printers the crankshaft dimensions were missed off both the vertical and grasshopper engines I hope it hasn't caused too much confusion but thankfully you can deduce the size from other parts.

If anyone spots any other errors I'd be very grateful if you let me know.
