A Triple Expansion Steam Engine in miniature
« on: November 01, 2019, 05:25:34 pm »
Gentlemen,
The awaited video is here. I ran it for awhile today and it loosened up nicely so it was time to make a movie. I don't know how much the I.P. and L.P. cylinders aid in the running but it will run down fairly slow even with the tiny flywheel.

Incredible George. Thanks for sharing the video. I hope you will bring it to NAMES 2020. It looks like it could drown out the V-Twin. 🤠
