Borderer Piston valve version

(1/3) > >>

Team ricky:
Hi chaps,

This one should be interesting 🤨

A little bit bigger than my previous projects , all castings seem to be present and correct.

Building the piston valve version for super heated steam and rc use , also got a great new idea on how to fit the water pump in a space efficient way !

Michael S.:
It looks like this is going to make a nice steam engine for a model boat. I'll be happy to watch.

(The castings look good)

Team ricky:
I sure hope to do the project justice :)

The castings are very good indeed ! I think the only two jobs I cant manage on my set up is the cylinder bores and crank shaft

Just due to equipment size and Id choose a stainless crankshaft , other than that all other operations I can manage ..

Michael S.:
I found your engine in a somewhat older catalog and there are references to several editions from the model engineer. Maybe you can get help there.

Jasonb:
The crankshaft could be built up from pieces if you can't manage a solid one.

Mounting the cylinder on it's side to a lathe cross slide and using a between centres boring bar would work if you can't set it up on a faceplate.
