Wilson Model "S 2" Steam Engine
« on: July 14, 2022, 11:35:19 am »

This was a recent eBay purchase.  $99.00 plus $22.00 shipping.

Produced by the Wilson Brass & Aluminum Foundries Limited, Toronto Canada.

I haven't run it yet (my AC in my workshop was out since it arrived with temperatures above 100 degrees Fahrenheit every day).

The instructions say to "Fill generator slowly with Methyl Hydrate until the asbestos packing is thoroughly saturated and a little free liquid appears on top."

How times have changed.   ;D   

I definitely will not be using the original burner/generator!

This one is all original and complete and I thought a very fair price.

The main reason I bought it was that I didn't have an engine made in Canada in my collection of "Steam Engines from Around the World".
