  2. single cylinder compact double-acting steam engine kit

    SC1A single sclinder compact steam engine kit

    £97.04

    Double-acting compact double-acting steam engine Kit

    1/2 Bore 5/8 Stroke. Cast Flywheel

     

     

     

    This engine is a compact double-acting steam engine. A slide valve is used to control the steam. The compact size is possible by using a ?Scotch Yoke? drive between the piston and the crankshaft. A Scotch Yoke is also known as a slide crank. An eccentric driven yoke operates the valve. Using a yoke drive eliminates the length of the crosshead commonly used in steam engines. 

    The Scotch Yoke has greater frictional losses than a conventional crosshead-connecting rod arrangement, however, unless you are operating under a heavy load, the difference is small. This engine is non-reversing, but it may be assembled to run in either direction.

    This engine requires a small set of screwdrivers, a pair of needle nose pliers and a small flat file to assemble. All the components are machined and don't need any further machining.

  4. TVR1ABB Twin Cylinder double acting Hackworth steam engine kit

    TVR1ABB Twin Cylinder double acting Hackworth steam engine kit

    £252.00

     Twin Cylinder Double acting Hack worth steam engine reversing Kit

     

    The Graham Industries TVR1ABB is a twin-cylinder,
    reversing steam engine with 1/2” diameter bore by
    5/8” stroke. The crankpins are set 90 degrees apart
    so the engine is self-starting at any position of the
    crankshaft. A Hackworth reversing gear is used to
    provide reversing operation and is easily adapted
    to radio control. All machining is done and critical
    assemblies such as the silver-soldered manifolds
    are pre-assembled. All necessary materials and
    hardware are supplied with the kit. Most of the
    hardware is stainless steel and the machined parts
    are made from bass, aluminum and steel.
    R166ZZ shielded ball bearings are used instead of
    the brass bearings that the TVR1A uses. This results
    in even slower low-end speeds, reduced friction and
    longer engine life.
    Only a few hand tools are required to assemble
    this kit. These include: a small set of screwdrivers,
    needle nose pliers and a small file. Approximately 6
    to 10 hours are required to assemble this engine. If
    desired, all parts will accept a high-polish. This will
    take some extra time but will produce an exhibition
    quality model.


    With steam or air operating pressures up to 35
    PSI, this is a powerful engine for model marine use.
    After breaking in, the TVR1ABB makes a good display
    model, operating reliably at low speeds with under
    5 PSI pressure. Included with the kit is a detailed
    instruction manual with drawings, photographs and
    complete assembly instructions.

     

    Dimensions:
    • Base: 3.000” x 1.844”
    • Crankshaft end-to-end: 4.344”
