Sipps 1/4 Restoration
« on: February 04, 2021, 09:26:52 am »
I don't have any "before" pictures but this is what I ended up with. This engine started out greasy, squeaky, rusty, etc. Hope you enjoy.

Excellent work.

What all did you have to do to it?

Excellant restoration of a superb engine, and welcome to the forum. Will we get to see it under steam?

Excellent work.

Welcome to the Forum from the Great State of Texas. 🤠

I took it apart, did some degreasing, a lot of sanding, glass beading and then paint. The lagging was all beat-up and dented so there was a lot of filing and then polishing.
I enjoy restoring these things and also building them. I have another larger engine I'm restoring right now and I will post a pic of it when I'm done.

Very nice indeed!

And a big WELCOME to the Forum!!!

I especially like the big pulley wheel that your Sipp wears. Wish any of mine were wearing such a fine accouterment.
