PM Research Oscillating Steam engine with 1/2" bore and 3/4" stroke
This is my first engine project. I was looking for an easy first project that would give me some initial machining skills and be within the capabilities of my Sherline lathe and mill. It is a PM Research Oscillating Steam engine with 1/2" bore and 3/4" stroke. It came as 6 castings, was very easy to build, and a fun project overall. I mounted it on an aluminum base and finished with paint. I run it on compressed air.
