1.5" scale working Pyle National Generator Type K2

Post by NZsteamer » Sat Oct 16, 2021 5:46 pm

I have a fully working 1.5 inch scale Pyle National Type K2 generator available for sale.
The outside details are copied from the original units as well as referencing the original Pyle National service manuals to ensure an accurate reproduction.
They start life as lost wax brass castings which I have available to purchase if someone just needs a dummy unit. I then take my time to fabricate the internals so as to produce a unit that puts out 12v DC and close to 1 amp. The turbine shaft rotates on miniature sealed roller bearings and there is a built in solid state voltage regulator.
The steam inlet fitting is sized for 1/8 tube.
Exhaust is threaded 9/32 40TPI so an extension pipe can be screwed in.
The overall dimensions are, length 2.878” (73.11mm), width 1.465” (37.22mm), height 1.654” (42mm)
I make these on a very limited basis as they are very labour intensive.
I will have a second unit available shortly.
Fully tracked shipping is included in the sale price.
I take payment via Paypal

Unfortunately I have recently had a price increase from my foundry and with shipping also increasing I have had to increase the price for this to US$2200.

I can be contacted via email at frances_chris@xtra.co.nz

Almost sold out. Only one left now. I'm not sure when more of these will be available.
