Runs real slow to pretty good higher speed. I normally run the beam engines quite slow. I run my engines on air. Great looking display also.

STUART 5A steam engines for sale. Great, powerful runners. I have 2 of these engines - one has a reverser (top photo) for use in a boat, for example, the other does not have a reverser (bottom photos).  Regarding the engine in the top photo: The engine and all components for reverse are installed - Ready for a knowledgeable person to set it up.  The engine runs great in a clockwise direction.  Engine with reverser in top photo is   SOLD .

Stands 15" tall, 8 1/2" wide, 9" long. Flywheel 7 1/2" (1 3/4" thick). Wt. app. 35#. Walnut base 12 1/2" x 7 1/2". The engine in the bottom photos was completed a couple of months ago. It is not yet broken in. I've run it on air. An airline valve (for running on air) is included. Also included are 2 relief valves which would need to be drilled and tapped in the cylinder if you wish to run it on steam. Some, especially the U.K., put one larger relief valve in the head cap only.  Engine without reverser in bottom photos is still available.
