Hi All

Inspired by another forum, steamy bay, I have been building a new engine this summer

Thought I would show pics of her, as she passed the test run today.

Here is the CAD

And here is the real thing

That is really neat looking. Can you put a few centimeters beside it for scale? What type of engine is that?

Hey,
Beautiful!!!! How about posting a plan so us blocks could take a stab at it. Beautiful work!!! Fred

That is nice work. The inverted V twin is a different approach. It is always a great feeling when they run.

That's nice. Very solid looking. I've not seen the inverted-V shape before. It gives it a very unique look.

Very Nice, is that solid works? Are you able to simulate compressed air moving the pistons or you just animate it by telling the fly wheel to rotate?

I saw that engine on an old light house ship that the Coast Gaurd used many years ago. The engine was used to lift the anchor.

The ship has been turned into a muesum in Virgina Beach Virgina.

I would be interested in the plans for making one also. Some indication of size would be real nice. A great piece of work.

Mogens,

That is some real nice work. I would like to have a scale included in the picture so I could get a feel for the size. Are plans available for this engine?

Great work!

I'm always very impressed with people's engines - regardless of scale.

It would be really neat to see a video of it running.

Y'all check the web site in his signature for the plans. They're not up yet, but I bet they will be. He has some other plans posted there.

Best,

Thank you all for the kind words, as allways, your kind respond makes the whole work even more great. :D

My wife often ask "what is it for ?" and when I tell her, I find it facinating to create a working engine from a lot of row material she is wordering even more, so next time I tell her, the reason for all the work, is to get all the nice respond from your folks :) , maybe she will understand this.

The over all lenght = 100 mm the height = 78 mm and width = 66 mm

I have been dokumenting the whole process of making the engine, and it is my intention to submit an article to HSM, this also means that I will not submit the plans on wallenderengineering.com

Here is some links concerning this rather special construction :

If I remember right you post from Norway,"what is it for"? confirms my theory that Norweigian women are the same as American women,and English women,and Canadian women,and Chinese women.....totally un-impressed with our machining skills:D:D

Quite impressive! Someday i think i'd like to attempt a steam engine - right now though i'm focusing on figuring out how to hit the on/off button on my lathe...i'm excited when i turn a shoulder in something or cut a keyway lol :D

Very neat piece!!

While I am sure that Norway is a very nice country and the Norwegians are very nice people Mogens is from Denmark as are many of my family. If you visit Denmark there will be no doubt in your mind that is where you are. The only way to avoid seeing a danish flag is to close your eyes. :D

That reminds me, I need to buy a new danish flag for my flagpole... The old one is a bit worn.

thats a nice looking little pup, am a little surprised at how small the steam tubes are, she must be a low RPM chugger, she's a little beauty...

Very nice. I also build small steam engines as a hobbie. You out did yourself on this one. L,H&R

I say sorry too, should have updated my profile, but now it is

I do of cause feel offendet by being call Norwegian, in that country you have to pay 3 times the money for a beer as in Denmark :D

The small steam pipes is ΓΈ1 mm internal, and in the test run I could run it very slowly just as I want it to do, hate when small engines, like a typical oscillating engine, is running very fast RPM
