Part-built Sanderson beam engine - stock code 1688

Part-built model of this elegantly proportioned beam engine, an accurate reproduction of a Sanderson 12 hp engine of 1846. Machined flywheel, crank, cylinder. Most castings to complete although missing the eccentric strap and pump body. The cylinder support bracket has been made by fabrication.

Work completed so far is fair, the beam has one end bushed and re-drilled.

No drawings, although they are available (along with castings) from Blackgates Engineering.

7/8 inch bore
2 1/2 inch stroke
9 3/4 inch diameter flywheel
