Live Steam 
Limited Edition 
Single Cylinder "Mill" Model Steam Engine 
Fully Machined Kit in Brass, Bronze and Steel 

This limited edition version of our single cylinder Mill engine includes the large steel flywheel off our Beam engine, shaft support and mounting plate with legs.

The horizontal single cylinder mill engine is a simple design, yet retains the basic mechanics of engines which powered many mills, factories and mine pits in the nineteenth century.

NOTE: The pictures are of the finished, assembled and painted model, this listing is for the kit of parts. The pulley wheel shown is available as an option.

The classic mill engine layout has a double acting cylinder, eccentric driven piston valve and the large steel flywheel offers smooth and slow running and is capable of powering a range of accessories, in a variety of roles. The engine also includes triple split bronze bearings for the crank shaft, a substantial cast base and steel mounting plate with legs.

The kit consists of precision produced parts each carefully made and checked to ensure reliability in service.

The cylinder assembly, slider and piston are manufactured from brass and the piston shaft, conn rod and valve from stainless steel so are not susceptible to the corrosion. The piston shaft passes through an adjustable gland and the steam inlet can be on the top or bottom of the chest.
