Pearl & Zenith Foundry Patterns
1st May 2022
The Pearl Engine and the Zenith Engine foundry patterns are for sale. All are well proven for use by foundries or in a small shop.
The Pearl 2 ½ by 3 and the 2 ½ + 2 ½ by 3 engines as well as the Zenith 2 ½ by 5 engine are precise replicas of classic marine steam propulsion. These engines have been well accepted for decades.
The patterns are on match plates and ready for immediate use. The patterns can be removed from the match plates and just the patterns with their core boxes can be shipped very economically.
The patterns and core boxes have been professionally produced and work well. The supplied machining drawings can be easily re-produced.
More engine details can be found at: www.PearlEngine.com.
Images of all the patterns and core boxes can be viewed there as well as videos of the engines running.
Will consider an offer for all or part.

Machined beam engine castings (almost) free to the right home!
28th March 2022
Machined major components for an ME Beam Engine. They are available to anyone (a) who will pick them up from my home in mid-Sussex and (b) is happy to make a £20 donation to the Red Cross.
The ME Beam Engine was serialised some years ago in ‘Model Engineer’ and these parts come with a complete set of drawings, while the remaining castings are available from Reeves. Flywheel is 9" diameter and beam is 10" long.
Please note that I will not be posting these parts. They need to be picked up or maybe could be handed over at ‘Puffing a-Wey’ or the Thames Rally later in the year.

GOOD HOME WANTED
BACK ISSUES OF FUNNEL
26 September 2021
Having been a member of the SBA for many years, I possess copies of the back issues of Funnel, journal of the SBA (and a good read to boot,) which I am now looking to re-home with a caring owner.
I have a copy of all issues from Number 31 to Number 190 (the latest issue), including the Classified Quick Reference Indexes covering Issues 31 to 175 inclusive.
I live in Swanage, Dorset, which would be a long way to travel for most prospective new owners to come and pick them up, especially in these uncertain times, therefore I would be prepared to send them at my expense to any UK mainland address. (Sorry, any interested party from overseas would have to pay postage or collect. Intrepid Steamboaters could consider a sea voyage to Swanage to collect in person).
If you are interested in this offer, please contact me, Patricia Platt, by email at email@example.com
or by phone (landline) on 01929 424496.
(There is an answerphone facility to leave a message if I’m not in).
