Model Engineer's Handybook 1918: A Practical Manual on Model Steam Engines Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:


Chapters include principles of the steam engine, model steam engine, self-acting toy engine, horizontal engines, oscillating engines, launch engine, tank engine, tank engine details, governors and pumps, erecting a model, model boilers, and miscellaneous items.

This isn't a collection of plans as such. No dimensioned drawings of any consequence. This is about the details a model maker must know if he is to build a small steam engine. You get how-to and construction details, but this is more about about stimulating you to generate ideas. Lots of engravings and drawings of components.

A great little book for engine builders. Loaded with practical ideas waiting to be adapted to modern materials and methods. I have a copy here with your name on it. Just say when.
