Horizontal Oscillating Cylinder engine with vertical boiler

Another of the model from the collection built by Mr.R.Roebuck of Guildford. This one is dated 1986 and is a small oscillating cylinder horizontal engine with an associated vertical boiler. Built in copper, brass and stainless steal the model is mounted on a nice inlaid wood base and is currently rigged up to run on compressed air. The boiler currently has a connection for the air supply which could be removed  and a pressure gauge fitted. The heat source for the boiler was almost certainly designed to be a night light candle.                                                      £80.00IMG_1153 IMG_1155 IMG_1156 IMG_1157 IMG_1159 IMG_1160
