Title: Afghan engine and boiler complete running live steam plant assembly.

Description: For sale is a complete boiler and steam engine assembly .

I designed this steam engine myself whilst working at camp bastion in afghanistan in the royal engineers workshop supporting the troops. I have now returned home and finished off the assembly and i must say the whole set up is running beautifully.

The engine design is both seven sixteenths bore and stroke and it is double acting. There is a simple displacement lubricator and when running on 35 psi produces a surprising amount of power.

The boiler is a vertical fire tube type, of all copper, silver soldered construction. There are seven fire tubes and the boiler cap and chimney are made easily detachable for the purpose of cleaning and access to the safety valve.

Boiler dimensions are 2 inches in diameter and 5 inches tall. The chimney adds a further 4 inches so total height is about 9 inches. The boiler is designed for gas firing but the ceramic burner is not included.
