Making a Steam Engine - (Iron & Steel Casting)


My brother sent me this link to a superb video making a 'proper' steam engine :

. . . .enjoy

Fabulous! Superb!
And the film quality was so good.
I didn't have headphones so watched without sound. But I knew what was happening without narration. A choreography of casting forging, milling, drilling, turning, pipe fitting, flange rolling, heat treating, rivet heading. The cylinder and wheel molding were eye-popping.

I wanted it to last longer, and to see all the machining between every stage shown, but well, whaddya want , egg in yer beer?

Bloody brilliant movie! Boy did they work hard back then....
