WORKING REPLICA 1880’s STEAM DRILLING ENGINE
Long a mainstay of the Pennsylvania and New York oil fields, these engines can still be found in use today, although most have been converted to half breed gas engines. This 1/8 scale replica has a 12″ overall length and a 6-1/2″ diameter flywheel. The kit comes complete with 17 bronze and iron castings, all the bar stock, gasket material, screws, and complete working drawings. This kit is a machinist’s delight no matter whether you are a pro or an amateur. The satisfaction of seeing this engine run with all its moving parts operating is reward enough, but watching the fascination of others who see it work is truly gratifying. Note that machining and assembly are required for this kit. Brick base is not included, please see our machine tool accessories for purchase of brick material.
