NEWCOMEN.....plans for model build.

Post by john66 » Mon Mar 07, 2005 10:49 am

Hello folks,
Does anyone know a supplier in the u/k [apart from Sussex Steam],where I might be able to procure plans or scale drawings that would enable me to build the ...''NEWCOMEN'' atmospheric steam beam engine.
Thank you all in advance,and all the best for now,
John.

I don't know about plans, but a good start, are the two books by
David Hulse, about early steam Engines.
I got mine from TEE publishing
David built some absolutely Beautiful Newcomin Engines.
maybe he could provide the source

I think there was a fairly long-running series in Engineering in Miniature (also by Tee Publishing) on building one of these
