Hope this post is not too out of place. Just got this running. Stephenson reverser works good but I still need to make the linkage and It needs a crosshead. I want to eventually mount this on a scale tractor.

Did you build that yourself?
It looks great.
Steam fascinates me.
I went to steam school years ago in Somerset, VA

Yep I built it with a chunk of Harley fork tube for a cylinder and a Harley charging system rotor for a flywheel.

Thanks for the post.........

Part of my career included maintenance in a Natural Gas Compressor Station (Mile 285 Alaska /Alcan Highway)that operated Westinghouse Steam turbines.

Steam supplied from boilers was at 500 PSI......

I have not started building a boiler yet but I was thinking 80 to maybe a 100psi the engine is running on 18psi in the vidio. I will post a better vidio when I get more done.

Keith Appleton is out of England. It is so much fun to listen to his layed back accent as he works on models. He has lots of videos.
Model steam.

Kieth for steam engine knowledge and this old Tony for machining tips are a wealth of information to anyone wanting to turn scrap metal into operational art. I have a crosshead fabbed and I am working on the linkage to operate the reversing gear. I will post a more thorough vidieo when It is done.
