Ebay vintage engine sales


Featured Posts

Meccano for big boys! Could that ever become a working engine again? I would guess that it would take a LOT of money and/ or even more patience.

 

 

The main impediment to this running again is, I would say, something small but crucially important missing from the pile of bits. It's the small and bits that don't usually go wrong that can be the hardest to obtain when missing.

Like for example, a left hand thread 9/16" BSF nut. (Not that I expect there to be one on this engine, but its the sort of thing that gets lost on dismantling.)

Thanks for the heads-up on that one

You're welcome.

 

I see the Reader steam engine is still for sale. A boiler is, I imagine, the hard bit.

 

Oh, and another boat to put it in :)
