Considering steam engine build on new lathe
« on: May 06, 2013, 11:19:25 PM »
Hi Modders,

Having recently acquired a new 7x 14 Sieg lathe I am considering an engine build from castings and have been looking at the Stuart range.

The 10V looks like an engine I could construct on this lathe, however I already own a 10V and a 10D so considering other models.

My question is would it be harder to build one of the larger similar design engines such as the 7A and would the lathe I have be big enough for the project.

Any advice from members experienced with these engines would be appreciated.

Cheers Mick
