Poppet Valve Steam Engine Booklet

$3.49

Back when I was in High School, I had a fixation on steam engines.  I wanted an engine lathe desperately, but didn't have the money or space for one - so I developed my own techniques that didn't require one.  I used bronze pushings for the piston and cylinder, and BB's for the poppet valves.  The little engine worked for me, and for others who tried the same construction techniques.  Here, I give drawings (not necessariloy full scale) and detailed instructions on how to align and assemble the brass parts to make the engine run.  34 half-page digital booklet.
