stuart turner 10v help
« on: April 30, 2011, 03:59:30 PM »
hi all this is my first post here
i recently aquired a stuart 10v kit and need the book on how to build this or drawings
any and all help would be appreciated
this kit is about 60% machined
there are many questions to be asked but i cant logically ask these till i have plans or books
i ordered a plans set from stuart dont have an idea when it will arrive as i live in the us and the plans are coming from the uk
i see a book was published regarding this model called " building  a vertical steam engine from castings " by andrew smith, revised by pengwern

does anyone have a copy of this book or where one could source this thanks

Hi Earnie

Welcome to the Forum  :thumbup:

UK source herewith:

http://www.camdenmin.co.uk/construction-manuals/building-a-vertical-steam-engine-p-2094.html

Also apparently on Amazon US for some horrendous prices 'used'

IF it's the same book ??

I have a few modest talents. Knowing what I'm doing isn't one of them.

Hi Earnie, welcome to the pack :beer:  I'm glad you got some drawings, and hope to see some metal chips soon, and see you on your way to a fine engine that runs.  It's always great to see new names and new projects on the site, the more the merrier.  Good luck with that Stuart,  :beer:  Cheers, Jack

It's good that you have a friend to help you, but it is a heavy way to build a engine on  :doh:
