eBay find: Please help ID 9.5" brass steam engine
« on: October 12, 2021, 12:21:12 pm »
This engine came from New Mexico so is probably made in the USA.  It stands 9.5" tall and has a bore x stroke of approx. 1.5" x 1.5".  It will not run on air as the valve gear and connecting rod are too heavy.  I hope that with a flywheel it will run.  The crankshaft diameter is .5".

I would love to know who made it and how old it might be.

Thanks for any help.
