I finally activated a web space to make the pics of my steam engine available in this forum:
I recently found a few more precise information about this steam engine: it seems to be in fact a Farcot's stationnary engine. Here's a link to a web site that displays a pic of an engine very much alike mine:
I'm still looking for more detailed information about the valve system: "the valve consists of two slide valves one on top of the other, along the lines of Meyer valves." I guess what it is, but if it rings a bell to someone, I'd appreciate to discuss of it a little bit further.
Go to ''drop box files'' select the files for year 2000 ''retired files'', and part way down the page will be some text and photos of ''Nigel Eatons'' build of the ''Stuart Turner '' version of your engine. This would appear to be all that is archived in this system I hope this gives you some more insight into the build, as yet I have not come across any drawings. All the best for now, John.
Hello CCT. How are you getting on with the rebuild, renovation of your table engine? I am just starting on a ''James Coombes table engine'' that I won on Ebay, it looks as if it will be a challenge. All the best for now. John.
