George’s Stuart Turner Beam Engine Is Now Operational And Looks Splendid In These Photos
These updated photos of George’s Stuart Turner model beam engine that he has built in Pattaya, Thailand, show the engine complete and operational a and painted.
Here is another view of the same model steam engine:-
It’s certainly a fine looking model and the steelwork and cast iron bright parts are really gleaming. The ‘fish-bellied’ connecting rod has come out really splendid.
George has reported that the engine as shown above has been run on compressed air but not steam yet.
This is what George said when he sent me the photos:-
|Not very happy with the result and I will blast the paint off the base and re-machine the part where the central column attaches to the main base. The parallel motion still has to be polished and the cylinder requires final machining.|
