Making Simple Model Steam Engines, Hardback Book

Making Simple Model Steam Engines Hardback


In this book, long-time model maker Stan Bray describes the construction of a range of uncomplicated miniature steam engines, for construction by the model engineer.

Single-acting oscillator to more sophisticated twin-cylinder double-acting engines are described as well as the construction of a range of boilers.

The final project brings together engine and boiler into a simple steam railway locomotive.

Full drawings in both metric and imperial formats are included.

Every project in this book can be completed with a minimum of workshop tools, and they are a perfect way into model engineering for the uninitiated, and the ideal relaxation for the more experienced engineer.
