3 Scratch built engines lot for sale.

Post by Marty Pinkston » Mon Apr 25, 2022 7:20 pm

In 2018, I built a "Little Kathy" at 1.25 scale as a demonstration for KSU engineering students. I was the "lab-rat". In 2019, I built a no name engine from a magazine article from 1947. It has forward and reverse and looks alot like the engine of the African Queen, Humphrey Bogart's launch in the movie. In 2020 I built that same engine in 2X size of original. That big boy weighs over 50lbs., has a 2-1/2" Bore 2" Stroke, 8" flywheel on a 3/4" crank shaft. Stands at just over 16" from base to top of cylinder. All engines were drawn up in Fusion 360 and all cast parts used 3D printed patterns and were K-Bond sand cast in silicon bronze, then all machining was done by myself. All engines were fitted with HiLube plastic piston rings so they could be run on compressed air. Each engine has less than 5 hours of run time.
I will try to post a couple of photos.
Asking $6000.00.
All 3 engines are being sold as one lot, I am not selling individually.
The CAD files are not included in this and are not for sale.
The patterns are not for sale.
