Description:
Horizontal steam engine. This model appears in the 1919 cataloge and also (unchanged) in 1931. It was probably available a few years before and after those dates. It was available in 4 sizes and this example is size 4 - 1" bore x 1" stroke. The cataloge entry reads "Slide valve cylinders with rectangular ports, screwed packing glands, trunk guide and crosshead, steel connecting rod, bearings, heavy flywheel, 3-speed pulley, brass bedplate, made of brass and steel castings, all parts screwed together. Highly finished, fast running, guaranteed British make and British Materials, the whole mounted on a plinth and good value. Will work a dynamo or other models." The price in 1919 was 45/-, which was quite a lot in those days. The wooden plinth is not original and has a cut away section to clear the flywheel. It is unpainted, which is, I assume, how it was originally. It has one double acting cylinder, slide valve
