My first steam engine

Hi there,

A quick post to show the little steam engine that I machined during the summer.

The machining was mainly done on this Schaublin mill.

Cylindre

The cylinder is made of cast iron which gives auto lubricant properties to it.

The piston is obviously turned brass.It has tight dimensions to make a really nice fit with the cylinder.

The boiler is made of 3mm thick iron. I brazed all the the hardware to it to make it as steam tight as possible.
